Coming from a 40d that I love. I had the opportunity to play with the mark 3 Last night. all I can say is this is really really bad. The view finder is unbelievable, It is lighter then the 40D with battery grip.

It just felt so good to hold.

What have I done??

you've done the right thing... too many people complain about the mkiii without actually trying it... really is a beauty, though a bit on the expensive side (however, per shot of shutter life, mkiii and 40d+grip are pretty much even, though mkiii has a few extra features and a much better battery)

Just remember though, just because it's a good camera doesn't mean it's the right one for you... Especially if you have an overbearing wife/gf.


I don't hate macs or OSX, I hate people and statements that portray them as better than anything else. Macs are A solution, not THE solution. Get a good desktop i7 with Windows 7 and come tell me that sucks for photo or video editing.

Clearly the wife/gf is the problem of this equation.

It's more a problem and not an equation :lol:

I don't see too many equal signs when it comes to dealing with the wife/gf it's usually a problem :D

It's never "IF we do this, then we can get this"

it's more along the lines of "IF we do this, then we MIGHT be able to get this"


a couple of cameras + eyes that are starting to open + boatloads of patience

absolutely nothing wrong with what you've done! i was admiring the film EOS-1 and Nikon F4 on a glass shelf during the 90s. my bad, i didnt even have the guts to ask to play with it then. but as they say, "if you want it bad enough, you'll get it". it took me a decade to get one!

at work people have come in to ask about lenses and stuff with their mark IIIs and I always ask them if I can look at their camera since when we get a Mark III we cant open the box (obviously)....they are always super nice about it and honestly I cant wait till i get mine.

This is why I'm single.
And.
I can't wait for my MKIII to arrive. I may get a 40D as a backup later on.
