Looks like the 5D III demand is higher because D800 is having Left AF issues .

Soon people will be saying that Canon is falling apart and is desperate for profits, hence the return to the launch price. Probably the same people who said Canon was desperate for profits and lowered the price (when it is retailers who are setting the prices (all different)).

Well, you can take the D800 and rotate it upside down when the subject is on the left. It is not very convenient when handheld though. The 5D III has relatively low resolution, so AF does not have to be quite as accurate.

actually i really should have said peeking not peaking i think
exposure peaking zebra stripes but focus peeking (although it seems everyone does write it as peaking)

a zoomed 100% view box on the liveview screen or allowing the entire screen to be 100% view so you can actually focus WHILE shooting video not just before

anyway it's likely wishful thinking since the CR2 new firmware for 5D3 coming soon seems to have never come and we'll probbaly have to resort to hacked firmware eventually

oh damn guess i was wrong so that is why they call it focus peaking and not peeking

anyway it couldn't hurt to offer both focus peaking and focus peeking

i have seen some implementations where you get a zoomed in box on top of the full fov

But yeah, so Focus Peking it is.

isn't the messed up left focusing on the D800 for manual focusing through the VF only?

not that that is great by any means, it's an issue, but it's not as bad as the AF gone bad or if the VF had a screen that allowed for decent manual focusing through it (i've heard various claims, some that the D800 doesnt allow the screen to be swapped ala 5D3 and others saying it does)

or maybe it has both AF and MF messed up on the left
(it has liveview focus messed up even in the center )
actually does the D800 have any focusing of any form working?
i think it uses fixed focus like an ancient P&S

Seriously it has little to do with other cameras, but likely supply and demand for a relatively new camera.
