This is an amazing combo. You will not be disappointed! Focsing is fast and accurate, performance is superb. Make sure you get Lexar 1000x cards, they make my buffer shooting raw go on for a very long time. My Sandisk extreme 60MB/s cards crap out way too fast... they are old now though.

Add a couple of fast primes and you're set for a very long time.

The 5D3 + 24-70 II is the best general purpose camera/lens combo I've ever owned.

They play great together! A minimalistic set would be the 5D3 plus 24-70 and the 70-200 Mk2's.

Used the combo on Xmas day. Low Light. With the flash, you get very, very sharp results on guests. And the colours are pleasant, skin tones are more than satisfactory. At 3200 or 6400 ISO and without flash, AF doesn't seem to work as accurately as in good light conditions. Maybe my fault because of inadequate settings.

Something weird I noticed : when using flash, the camera takes some time before reacting as if anesthesized, it seems less reactive, I don't know why. Well, I know there is a learning curve with the 5d3.

By the way, I was quite impressed with the HDR function. It works well, sharpness is apparently not affected. I really like it, even if the output is in JPEG format.

Bokeh with the 24-70 mm II is creamy and gives an artistic touch to your photos.

Looks like a known issue.

Focuses really well. I can get 100 shots in a row in focus at f/2.8 under indoor lighting at times. Haven't ever done that with any other body+lens combo before.

Nice combo!

Shot with 5D III and 24-105 F4 lens. It was against the rules, so I need to shoot quickly. No problem focusing at ISO 3200 and 1/6 second, hand held.
