Im so far behind the latest and greatest camera now wouldn't know what the 5d3 can and cant do.

Like Rob said it takes photos. What's new (for Canon) is it can focus really well, and low light performance is a little better than the 5D2.

And it's built properly (or feels and sounds it) unlike the cheap nasty 5D2.

One of the best features is the ability to repurpose the dof preview button as a AI servo mode while it's held down. Means I can take photos of still subjects, and then when I need to track something quickly (like the b+g's little boy/girl doing a spontaneous dance) I don't have to try to adjust ****, I just hold the dof button down and fire away knowing it's going to be in focus.

No. They just sit on a HDD.

Got everything I need in my camera ....... Don't do enough to spend any money on it. May upgrade in another 5 years when it hits 100,000 clicks.
Only on 60,000 at moment.

Far cry from 5 years ago.

I just use bbf and ai servo all the time anyhow.

Ergh, I am a sucker for needing the focus confirmation whenever possible. I use BBF too, but one thing I don't like is that if you misfocus with the initial press, then rattle off 4-5 frames, they'll all be out of focus. I guess not so much an issue with ai.

The MK3 is a considerably more sophisticated camera, better in every way, especially ISO and AF performance.
They took the AF directly from the 1DX.

The MK2 is a very simple camera, even when it was new it was considered pretty basic. Even with the video mode it has less menu options and custom functions than my new ancient 30D.

The MK2 does have a better shutter sound, it's a lot more mechanical.

MkII has a HORRID shutter sound, sounds like the things about to run out of the porridge that holds it place every time it fires...

You poor man, it sounds to me like a proper English gear box, something out of a Triumph or Austin Healey.
Lots of mechanical noises, vibrations and a small essence of hope it will keep working, all the while delivering a feeling of something designed and made by men.

The MK3 just sounds like my cat farting.
