| p.1 #1 · First shoot with 5D Mark III - thoughts |
-It fixed 99% of the issues I have with 5dII- Mostly related to erratic focusing. On my 5DII I couldn't get my brand new 35L to AF correctly until at f/2.8ish. Focused perfectly on 5DIII with no MA. No MA needed on any lens actually.
-Love the thumb joystick on the vertical grip. I didn't think I would really use it even, but it's awesome. The grip feels better all around.
-Dual cards is amazing. I bought a few cheap 32GB SD cards from a Microcenter to pair with my Good Sandisk 32GB CFs set to writing RAWS to both cards. I used to use 8GB cards and fill them up half way or so and switch, to avoid card data loss. With dual cards now I won't hesitate to fill up a 32GB card then if need be swap it along with the backup SD card.
-I am yet to fill up the buffer. I have not even noticed any lagging writing after firing a burst, which I would on 5DII quiet often.
-I dont care for the new zooming controls while in playback. I probably wont have to use it as often now though.
-I have been having mediocre results trying out Servo, but I really haven't used it much in the past so That's likely user error
-High ISO improvement is there. Wouldn't hesitate to go to 4000 if I needed to, on 5DII I tried to stay below 1250 or 1600.
-Silent shutter mode is pretty neat. I will surely be using this at ceremonies from now on. Does anyone know if it adversely affects the camera at all??
-I find that images look better once I am looking at them on a computer than they do on the playback screen. Looking at them on the screen, zooming in to check focus, they looked a bit blurry, worrying me. When I imported into aperture the raws looked great without any adjustments, super sharp.
Anyways, I'm happy with it so far and can't wait to use it at my next wedding.
