Ergonomics question: can a 5DIII owner measure something for me?

Can someone measure the distance from the right edge of the camera (when looking at the back) to the center of the joystick? I'm curious if it's closer than my 50D. I looked on camerasize.com to compare but I can't tell.

Thanks.

Thanks! It's 2 3/16" on my 50D so the 5D3 is closer, but not by much. Might be enough to make it more comfortable for me to use, though.

I see that you have both the 5D3 and 6D. How do you like going back and forth between joystick and the wheel for AP point selection?

I used the 6D only once, with the 5DIII, I bought the 6D because I hate to change lenses. the joystick is easier for me. Maybe because I had a 5DII, then the 5DIII before I got the 6D. One thing I can tell you though, using the 5DIII and the 6D side by side, it makes you appreciate the expansive AF points on the 5DIII.

Thanks for the reply. I was debating between the 5D3 and 6D for a while but decided I wanted the 5D3 AF system enough to justify the extra cost. I expect to pick one up by the end of the summer.

Thanks again.
