May be a silly question.

I know the 5d3 has a more accurate focus system than the 5d2.

Given the same lens, will it tend to lock on focus quicker with the 5d3?

Quicker maybe, but you won't notice it I think, because its already very fast, but with the 5D3 it will be more accurate.

Many thanks - have now got the 5D3- but haven't had time to try it out properly yet!
