This really is a great camera and I am delighted to have gotten one this past Tuesday.
The AF is so good it's a little daunting. I'm sure that I will come to love it immensely.
The pictures that have been posted are simply stunning!

Next week I get to take a week off and go to Florida a bit north of Vero Beach and this camera and the few L's will be coming with me.
I recently got the Lee Filter holder with the soft 3 ND set and a 77 filter holder.
Maybe I will email Ben Jacobsen.
:p
In addition to getting some much needed down time, I am looking forward to spending some quality time with this camera.
17-40, 24-105 (from the 5D2 kit I have) and the 70-200 2.8 II will be along for the trip.
I think it's time for me to get to know this gem of a camera and get some quality nap time because I will be up early with my gear.

The place I will be is right near the beach and on a Arnold Palmer designed golf course.
With Vero to the south and the beach to the east and the 3rd hole outside the back door, there won't be any shortage of photo opp's.

If you were going to get some quality time like this what would you suggest I look for?
I think as nice as the weather will be in that region, the choices of things to shoot may be, not limited, but selective maybe.
What do you all think?

Any suggestions?

Karl

Congrats on the 5DIII and the vacation!

I hope mine arrives before we head on vacation the middle of June.

Once more of us get our own 5DIIIs you will see lots more postings of practical experience, likes and don't likes.

Enjoy!!!

OK
I can deal with that as a Focus of what to shoot.
What is the best setup for that using this new awesome AF system?
