I got those crops by shooting full res in jpg, default nr and landscape picture style in default setting. Then cropped out a 450x450 box in dpp for crop1 and 500x500 box for crop2 and crop3. Those crops were uploaded to flickr and posted here in 450x450 or 500x500. Shooting at f/8 could have played a part in the loss of detail of crop1.

Those look like ok shots for such a long exposures. There is also atmosphere (heat) diffusion going on.

Could you try some relatively low light, detailed subject, handheld shots with very fast shutter speeds (like 1/500 or more), ISO 1600-6400 and with NR set to low (or off if there is such a setting), and change sharpening setting gradually from default to max. Thanks.

Never seen that with my 5D2. Does it happen with same lens or all lenses?

Do you have filters on them? That looks like filter flare to me.

yes if you have a UV lens, it will give you flares especially the cheapo ones. I removed all my UV lens because of this issue. I just make sure i used my lens hood to protect the lens.

In that case, it is likely that you have your lights pointed to directly towards the camera. I take it that you had a hairlight on that side, behind the model?

A hood should cut flare from any light outside the FoV, but if it is only just outside the view some can still get through, particularly with a strong light source like a strobe.

Do you only get flares when shooting with light sources just outside the FoV? It may be a simple case of moving your lights a little, although I must admit that flare does seem unusually excessive for a shot with a hooded prime lens.

The camera feels smaller and lighter in your hand than the Mark II, I realize its not. Very solid. The grip is a nice addition. Rear wheel control is more substantial and can be locked. 61 AF points cover the entire screen if you like. AF is much faster Mark II. Menu is radically changed for the better and the ISO, Aperture and shutter speed can be changed from the back screen, great for aging eyes. I have never seen the back screen leveling before but maybe I am out of the loop? Seems to work fine.

How do you like the AF performance in low light situations? Is it better
than the 5D MKII ?

For those that complained about the lack of detail in the night iso test...may I know how should a detailed shot look like? I retested in bright day light and got the same result...I tried the same shot with the m4/3 and got worse result...

I mean the green sign board is really really tiny, taking up just a small portion of the frame. It might be difficult to resolve the detail. If you look at the house and fence in crop 1, it seems to be pretty alright, or should it be even better? Anyway, I will try agan tonight with another lens...

Just wanted to say that people here do appreciate you taking the time to post pics from the 5D3.
Thanks.

Although a 5DMkIII is not in my (immediate...:D) future, I also want to thank you for taking the time to present us with photo samples.

I wouldn't worry about the 'pukers'. The results speak for themselves. It's an ego trip for some to be negative. (Oldest trick in the book, somebody posts a nice photo, another says, 'it's soft', 'it's out of focus', 'your horizon is tilted', 'the composition is dull'. There is no rebuttal... 'Lacks detail'... Suddenly he is a big man, with better 'standards' than the herd!).

If you'd like to offer more to the community here, answer the other questions. For a while, there will be so few real users, that you contribution of information will be valuable, for an audience that thirsts for information.

I never get that weird flare from my 5d2 and I shoot a lot of intentional flare type of shots.

The focusing on those night shots was responsive, fast and zero searching. I agree, as advertised, the AF system on this camera is very advanced to the M2 system. Apples and oranges.

Did you try using the non cross type focus points in low light? I'm curious to know if the -2EV applies to the these areas of the focus sensor. Thanks :)

ChinaVol, how' s 5dmk3 compared with 1d4?
Shutter lag, af, iso and overall perfomance?

Thinking to sell my 1d4 and getting 5d3.

Not the same but much closer than the M2. AF is strong! My original plan was to keep the M2, sell my 1D4 and purchase the 1DX. After reading the specs on the M3 I changed my mind, purchased it and now intend to keep the 1D4. I mainly shoot sports and this seemed to me to be the best bang for the buck. Its only been a few days but I think I made the right decision. I will be shooting a 3 day rugby tournament next weekend and after that can give a educated response.

Do they really? :rolleyes:

Some one is good enough to spend time showing pics from their new camera and all you can do is put them down. Nice......

i don't mean the shots it self. but I'm not really sure whats wrong with them. They look super soft at iso 200.
