I think what we are going to see is that the 5D3 is less forgiving of exposure than the previous versions. I think the trend continues where Canon has tweaked everything they can to get the performance they want, however, it comes at a price. That kind of sensitivity and processing will mean you won't be able to have the same kind of exposure latitude.

If it is the case, it doesn't bother me any since I ETTR as much as possible, so it would be no different if I shot with the 5D3. I hope I am wrong though. I looked through those FM images, and the ISO 1600 shot should be cleaner, but since it was a bit under exposed, the noise popped out. It feels a bit like what I saw with the 7Ds when I had them (and also with the 1D4 now to some degree).

Makes you wonder if all the people slamming 7Ds for poor ISO performance are going to change their song and dance since its a 5D.....

However, im really tempted for a mk ii because its now only £1500 in uk, the mark iii is exactly double at £3000! Shooting in low light is very important for me and any pictures with a lot of DR examples would help me in making the decision.

I don't want to drag this off topic, but who is still selling the 5D2 at £1500 ? They were that price most places a couple of weeks ago, but all the main dealers now seem to be charging the new price of £1659

I'm in the market for a 7D / 5D2 combo and was pretty bummed to see the price increases (the 7D went up as well).

£1525 from Harrison cameras. Or £1360 for a grey import with 3 year warranty from HDEW cameras (where I bought my 7D - no issues).

The 7D has noise problems when shooting sky or pretty much anything blue even at low iso's. Would be nice to see some samples of sky shots from the 5d mk iii in various iso settings.

I would never get a 5d2 unless it was below 1k. Get the 5d3. The shots from what I have seen here are spectacular. Wait one year and I guarantee you this will cost around 2k. Save save save and work your ass off your job and at the end if the tunnel you will have a 5d3 and will not regret it

Cheers, I'll look into those.

No worries. Camerapricebuster is a good site if you don't know it already. Doesn't show grey import sites though.

Some more user shots/experiences here.

Get a mk3. Its a 7d plus 5d2 +1dx rolled into one. Same price as a 7d and a 5d2 put together. Well close to it anyway

Of course you are kidding. This is 5D3, not D800. ;)

In the link I posted there is an example of a nearly black 100 ISO shot pushed 4 stops. Looks pretty acceptable to me.

Yeah, but I shoot with two bodies and I want to replace an aging 40D / 5Dc combo. I don't need the cutting edge tech, I do want the reach advantage of a 7D, over either of the 5D bodies, for birding and the faster fps is better for some action work I do.

A 5D3 would mean pairing it up with my old 40D, I don't see any significant advantages for me with a 5D3 over the 5D2 (apart from AF) but I do see a very significant difference between the 7D and 40D (not least of which are significantly increased reach and the higher fps rate).

These are pretty impressive, even if there is still some noise in the deepest shadows. The earlier shots are 12800 and 25600 looked usable, too.

If these were shot RAW and processed through PSCS3, they should just keep getting better from here on out.... Adobe Camera Raw often goes through some tweaks and updates before it's optimized for a brand new model. I wouldn't be surprised to see that with the 5DIII, same as has happened with earlier cameras. Users will also figure out optimal ways to deal with the new camera's images and we'll probably see some profiles come available.

I'd be interested to see if these images - or perhaps the earlier close-ups might be even better - if RAW conversion were handled through Canon DPP instead, to see how well that works. (The theory being that Canon will have DPP reasonably well updated and optimized for the camera, to somewhat greater extent than third party softwares such as Photoshop have had the opportunity to do thus far).

Ah yes, the 5dm3 was launched in Hong Kong yesterday and saw it available at many shops. I was expecting a shortage (this is pretty common during launchtime here) but I was wrong. I'm pretty impressed how fast Canon got them out on the streets while the camera was only announced a few weeks ago. (couldn't say that about other canon lenses etc..)

anyway, keep the pictures coming chinavol! ISO6400 looks very usable to me, I'm somewhat glad that I skipped the 5dm2 upgrade, but IMO the price of the 5dm3 is rather steep for now.
