just got the Canon 5D Mark III yesterday. Pretty sweet camera. I still have my Mark II which I will still continue to use. Now I can use two bodies at a wedding instead of one.

The Focus Point is pretty confusing - but i think i understand and how it works now. I think this is the first time i actually read the manual.

Im not much of a movie mode person, but sometimes i like to play around with them. I didnt want to save the files on the CF card, especially when I am shooting still to it. But I thought I can save the Movie mode files onto the SD card? I dont see anywhere giving me the opinion where to save the movie files too.

i wonder if this camera will make some of the non-L prime even better? like the 24 f2.8 or the 28 f1.8? I cant afford the 24 f1.4 right now. hahaha

sorry im just happy i got a nice camera. :) ok time to shoot... wedding gig on Saturday.

Congrats!

I have no clue about the movie mode because I never use it. Hopefully someone else will chime in. I just got my 5D3 last week, and I'm in love with it also. :)

Regarding Video I don't think you can write separately , thats not a 100% though, I just dont use the video much.

Making older lenses better?.. Ken Rockwell seems to think this..:)

The 5D Mark III is Canon's first full-frame camera to correct lens color fringes. That's the biggest reason I replaced my old 5D Mark II with the new 5D Mark III; because my new Mark III automatically can correct many lens flaws, especially lateral color fringes, so my old lightweight plastic lenses on my new Mark III now often outperform my best L lenses on my old Mark II!

Don't shoot the messenger!..:D

The cheapest lens I've tried was the Sigma 50mm,KR has a reputation of talking S**t at times, To some extent, I think he's probably right on this if you are comparing from a camera with no lens correction, to those with the same lens on the 5Diii...proving there's a profile for that lens...
but software can do lens correction too.

My question to you is ,why spend $£3000+ Camera and want to skimp on lenses?.. shouldn't it be the other way round?..:)

Canon has 14 on-line tutorials on the 5DMkIII available at http://www.learn.usa.c​anon.com …d_markiii_tutor​ials.shtml (external link). Something there might be of help to you. Like with the 60D tutorials you can place copies of the videos on a memory card for viewing in-camera.

the 5D3 is sharper then 5D2.. and the noise level at high ISO (only tested up to 5000) is less then the 5D2.
