Canon EOS 5D Mark III

Review Date: Jan 12, 2013 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $2,799.99 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Far more than upgrade to 5D II. Almost like a hole new line of small camera. HDR is great. AF is great. Don't HAVE to have a landscape and action camera any more. This is all in one.

Initially, I thought this was just a tiny upgrade from the 5D II. I didn't upgrade for a long time until I got the itch from reading a bunch of positive reviews. I was lucky to get-it from Adorama on ebay for 2,799.99. I've used it for a few months now, and I must say it is a fantastic camera. Far more than just a 5D II upgrade ... that seems to be the 6D. This is a whole new all-in-one camera -- I no longer feel the need to have both an action and landscape camera. I just need the 5D III now.

Price and weight, but well worth it!

Pros: Fantastic auto-focus with the needed/helpful extra megapixels versus the III.

What I hoped the III would be ...

Pros: Crisp, clear shots of moving objects!

Great camera. I've only had this and a 5D, and this camera blows away the 5D when photographing moving objects.
