Andrew & nickspictures, you have a 5Dii and a 5Diii - what are the noticeable differences? I have a 5D and a 5Dii. There are substantial improvements comparing the 5dii to the 5d, including more pixels, less noise, live view, 1080p video. Is the 5diii that much better than the 5dii? I have heard that the autofocus and burst mode is improved on the 5Diii. What else that would substantiate buying a brand spanking new 5diii over a new (or even used) 5dii?
I think many folks thought that the 5diii would offer the same leap in performance and features over the 5dii as the 5dii offered over the 5d, given the price. That, and the natural bugs in a new product, might be part of the overall rumblings. The fact that Canon did not take the opportunity to introduce AEB to something greater than +- 3EV when they also built in "HDR" imaging is cause enough to shake one's head.
I can pick up a 5dii with a 24-105L lens on bhphoto for $2800 - or I could get a 5diii body for $3500. Which would you suggest for someone who owns neither and is looking for a full-frame dSLR, given that you own both?
Both of you have a bunch of cameras, besides your 5dIII - Would either of you sell your used 5dii for $1000, now that you have a 5diii? If so, I'll take it.
