Well still debating but thinking the improved AF is worth the upgrade??
I now have battery grip on mkII, but with increase in price of both mk III body and new grip wondering if I should skip grip.

I don't see many out there with grip. How many of you are using grip and would you go with it on MK III

Trying to get good idea of what MK II will bring if I buy MK III. Hard to tell from looking at eBay.

Would be body and grip. In excellent condition. About 10,000 clicks.

The grip isn't available until the end of this month...that's why you don't see many of them yet. ;) That being said, I do think that the price will be a big consideration for a lot of people...and many may choose to skip it.

I own both the 5DII and 5DIII...and IMO it is well worth the additional money. The AF is miles ahead of the 5DII, high iso's are much better, dual card slots, ergonomics are improved and the new lcd is fantastic. After holding the 5DIII the 5DII feels chunky and slow.

Take a look around the classified section...you'll probably get a much better idea of what things are going for than you would off of ebay.

When I said I didn't see many with grip I was talking about MK II NOT MK III

Ok I have been all over net looking at articles and videos and moving towards making the upgrade.
But couple of questions:
1. What is in camera RAW processing
2. Can you set up CF card for RAW and SD card for JPEG ?
3. The AF is 61 pts vs 15 pts on MK II. can you select one of 61 vs one of 15 ?

1. You can adjust things like WB, brightness, color space, etc in camera.
2. Yes.
3. Not sure I understand your question...and there are only 9 AF points in the 5DII.

Actually the MkII does have 15 AF points. Only 9 are selectable but there are 6 helper points around the center AF point.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

So my source wasn't lying was he ? :).

Not so good news...looks like the shadow noise on 5D III has not been fixed (noise read is bad compare to D800).

DarthVader wrote in post #14002390 (external link)
In a short sentence the 5D III sensor is a half stop better than the 5D II sensor. I think the shadow noise would be the same as 5D II while the Nikon is as always cleaner on the dark/shadow areas.


Nikon/Fuji.
Gear is important but skills are very important :)
