I owned this until an ocean wave knocked me into the water--the result was obtaining the 5D4.

The 5D3 was a great camera for me and glad I purchased it.

The 5DIII is STILL a capable camera, and offers a great bargain as lots of enthusiasts move to R-series bodies. I find there is a perception that when a new body arrives on the scene that suddenly the older ones being superseded are somehow no longer capable and that just isn't so. If a camera was capable of delivering decent images before, it is still able to do so.

I got my 5DIII from new back in about 2013 and must admit I have not used it a huge amount - the shutter count is only 7140 at this time and it is like new - I like to look after my gear. That said I enjoy using it for specific purposes or when I just want a change from my more recent purchases.

While we are in full lockdown, and have been for about 5 weeks, opportunities to go any distance to pursue images are slim, but I get the odd shot in my garden, like this one... Hand-held, available light

I agree. Mark III is a very capable camera.

I used it for 3 years . Now switched over to Mark IV.

Jai.
