I went to Focus on Imaging and thought it looked a good upgrade to 5D Mk2.
I waited until after first models were in good supply before deciding to look at one in earnest.
Part exchanged my 1D MK3 and 5D MK2 with grip for one, then added grip and 600EX.
I have had the camera about a month mainly using camera for studio shots until today when I took it to the Olympic mens Marathon to try out the autofocus. Although I played around with the settings in the focus menu I came back gobsmacked at how good the focus is. I would say better than the 1D3 and obviously far better than the 5D2.
I loved the image quality of my 5D2 and this is about a stop better. i still find I dial in about +2 thirds EV as I did with 5D2 and colours seem a bit more saturated.
If you have any doubts about moving up to this camera put them aside, it is not a an upgraded 5D2 but a completley new beast, you will love this camera.
