Canon 5D MkIII First Impressions Review by Philip Greenspun

http://photo.net …first-impressions-review/ (external link)

I have to say that I was a bit taken aback by this review.
but this comment kinda summed it up.

" Robin Smith , May 11, 2012; 10:32 A.M. Philip has written a most original and amusing review. Concentrating on the things the camera cannot do is certainly an unusual approach. I am not sure it is very helpful to all those who are genuinely interested in finding out about the camera, but makes those of us who are weary of the usual pixel-peeping/dynamic range fetishistic reviews prick up our ears. We are at a stage now that a camera at this price level is so good that I don't think it makes any practical difference as to which one you pick if you know what you are doing."

I have had the mk3 for about 2 weeks now and have shot about 3500 frames and so far I have nothing but great things to say about the camera. There is a lot more in the menu then needed if you are shooting RAW since many functions only impact the JPG rendering but it has been a HUGE improvement from my 7D

Popular Photography Magazine, July 2012 print issue, has a full test of the 5D Mk III as well as the D800. Just got mine in the mail today (yeah, I know, but for the price, it's the cheapest B&H/Adorama advertizing pamphlet there is).

Popular Photography is a great magazine.
I get that and Shutterbug.
I have to say that I was surprised to see the review and look at how they rated the two cameras.
It was in line with the other reviews from Nikon guys that seemed to like the 5D2 better.
I have to say it was surprising that the Canon seemed to be better across the board.
I have had mine for almost two months now and haven't touched my 5D2 since.
