p.1 #1 · Anyone finding 5d3 focus issue?


One guy is saying that he has three and that each one started off working great then suddenly the focus is not so good.

I would not know but i am planning on picking up the 5D3. I would love to know if this is consistent or if this poor chap just got a bad run.

There is a facebook page for those who have experienced similar issues. The intent to collate consistent experiences to feed back to Canon. http://www.facebook.com/groups/472171962814180/

no focus issues -- the 5D III has given me excellent focus

worth the upgrade from 7D/5D II for me. Image quality for nature pics, and birds have been very good.

I've put probably 10k frames on each of mine already and they are still focusing like a champ.

nice that this thread is turning out to be 1000 pages shorter than the 1D3 thread

been a long time since a thread with a title like this has stayed to only 3 posts even after a day and a half

The only issue I have so far is I need no MA on at least 7 of my lenses, while these same lenses requires +/- MA on my 7D. I find it very very odd. But I don't complain.

I opened my second 5d3 last night and popped in the 35L and Sigma 50.

Both cameras AF worked exceptionally well on both lenses and sharpness were the same.

I think the issue is that certain focus points don't seem to work with certain lenses...

The 5DMk3 AF is astounding. I'm still shaking my head in disbelief on how good it is after 2 months. However, I find that the focus is terrible with video (live view)...probably not any worse than other cameras except it seems to be when comparing to the excellent focus speed when not using live view.

This is SUCH the different thread than any other one ever dealing with Canon AF.

I've no problems with focus and works well using live view which is a new mode for me using it.
