Upgraded from a 7D which is a great DSLR but the image quality of the 5D MkIII is absolutely fantastic. Incredibly clear and has great low light capabilities.
The autofocus is amazing in all modes & so quick to change.
Best decision I have made to upgrade. Might seem expensive but well worth it if you are serious about great pictures.
Some may find it a bit heavy, but you cannot fault the quality.
A real Winner.

I bought the Canon 5d3 with a 2.8 70-200 IS lens. This enables great coverage of sport and indoor functions (it's often used by pros at press conferences). In basketball I set to aperture priority 2.8, crank up the ISO so that shutter speed is sufficiently quick, and select IS and auto servo focussing. Results magnificent. Metering is great, auto focus fast, and noise exhibited with high ISO is incredibly low. I'm overjoyed with this pairing.

I upgraded from canon 7D. Expensive yes which made me hesitate in purchasing but so please I did. Already seeing a big improvement in images. Sharper. I thought that I may find the shutter speed too slow for bird photography as less images per second than 7D. However I find it adequate and can still can the unique shot. The auto focus of 64 focal sports is second to none. Easy to use and spot on for very sharp images.

The following has been posted and accepted by Canon on their website, for their review request................guess I don't need to change it !!

Only had this camera for a few weeks now, but loving it !! Having had a 400D since 2007 and then upgrade to a 50D plus investment in three L series lenses, I thought I was a happy man. However, when the 5D MKIII hit the streets, there was a remarkable amount of enthusiastic reviews from not only the Press, but also my local guy in the camera shop. At this point I was contemplating entering the full size sensor market and saw the MKII as the cheapest and best solution............then I started researching. Low light capabilities and an awesome AF system captured my eye !!!! I am naturally a wary buyer and left my purchase for a while and carried on with further research. Others have released sixty squillion pixel DSLRs shortly before the 5D MKIII, but when all is said and done, do you really need all those pixels..................NO !!!!!!!!! Pixel counts of 36M and higher will eat hard drives like PAC MAN did the wee dots on the screen !!! We need a sensible approach to sensor size v pixels and I am of the opinion that the 22.1 M sensor is as much as we should go. Since using the 5D MKIII I have been amazed by the AF system. I thought previous piccies were sharp, but this AF has proved me wrong. I get almost 100% totally in focus. The system does take a lot of time to get used to and I am no expert yet, but I just love the way it works and how easy it is to select focus points. Read the manual a lot and practice is what I have found is best. Image quality is great and I love the low light capability. Initially low light was not on my hit list, hence my initial bent towards the MKII. However, now that I have used it to shoot Brisbane night time scenes in the city, hand-held and sharp, I am a low-light capability convert through and through. The camera has some great features with regards to assigning buttons and the MENU, although mind boggling when first used, is actually very very good and I have experimented more with this camera, than I did with my previous cameras (both still in regular service by the way). Build wise, the camera feels solid. No real down sides yet, but I do have to experiment further. If you are a very keen photographer, who understands photographic principles and who loves pin sharp results and lots of options that you are willing to use, then this is the camera. If you want it because it is better than your mates, but you only shoot in semi-auto and .jpeg, then don't....you are just wasting money !! Buy a 50/60D, or one of the other great cameras from Canon for the "novice".

Amazing image quality, Super fast focussing and shooting. Heaps of focus points. Fantastic quality and very low noise when shooting low light.

It's quite heavy when using the battery pack and L-series lenses, but definitely worth it for the quality that it produces. If you're upgrading from a lower resolution camera make sure you stock up on large volume memory cards and a large hard drive as it chews through them. The 5D mk III has certainly come a long way from its original model. Fantastic camera!

As this is my first full frame SLR, it is a awesome camera.. The AF system can be a little complexed due to so many different options but once you get the hang of it, its great.. The pictures ive taken so far have turned out unreal.. it pays to have some good glass on the end.. The price may seem a little high but you are getting what you pay for.

this camera has bought a new light into my life. and although it took a long time to save and make a commitment to purchase i am so glad i did, and wondered what i was waiting for. for me, this is not just a camera, it is a tool- top of the range and an investment for to kick start my career in the arts industry. so far, i have not found fault with it. one thing i would like to see is a few lower ISO speeds. but, nonetheless, a brilliant piece of technology.

Bought a Canon A1 back in the 80's. I thought that that was brilliant. Have owned a 350D, 500D, 5D mark 1 and now the 5D Mark iii. I have to say that this is the best camera I have ever had. Canon got it right. The image quality is awesome, even on old cheap lenses. It has not missed a beat so far. Now I just have to save up for some L lenses.

Whilst not cheap, you get what you pay for. Hopes this last the 30 years my A1 has. It makes digital photography a pleasure and a new learning experience to get the best from the equipment.

Would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. Have recommended to a friend who immediately went and purchased one. Both of us are extremely happy.

People have been waiting quite a while for an upgrade to the extremely successful Canon 5D Mark II. The idea behind the 5D Mark III is to deliver a camera that sits between the 7D and 1D X, has all the features of the 5D Mark II and resolves all the "problems" of the 5D Mark II. So, the Mark III is not an improved 5D Mark II it is a completely new camera that fits in the 7D-1D line with all the features of the old 5D Mark II. So, the new 5D Mark III is not revolutionary, like the Mark II was, it is more evolutionary. The new 5D Mark III definitely feels more of a 7D-1D X type of camera than a Mark II+ type of camera. Gone are some of the old "manual" features such as being able to install your own focusing screen but then this is replaced with a significantly improved Live View. The Mark III is a very modern camera, with excellent features and it will provide much, much better photos/video than the old Mark II. It does not have the resolution of the Nikon D800 but in all other areas the Mark III will produce stunning, high-quality photos. A great camera that will help you take better photos than the Mark II.

I upgraded from a 40D body, and naturally, this camera has been magical for me. It does what it is meant to do, the AF is brilliant, ISO if amazing, and generally this is the beez kneez of Canon cameras in this range. Sure the price is a little high, but the picture quality is work every cent. I would not hesitate reccomending this camera. I just also suggest pairing it with a 70 - 200 2.8 IS or a 24 - 70 EF.

I purchased this camera for a trip to the US, based on the previous models image quality and reputation of reliability of he MKII, and am so happy that I did.

The image quality is simply stunning! and it takes the nest low light images Iv seen from any camera in this price range.

The build quality is solid, weather sealing a step up from the previous model and ergonomically it feels better in the hand.

I highly recommend this camera to anyone looking for most importantly the best possible image quality, especially in low light conditions and secondly for its build quality.

Thanks Teds for your good service and efforts and always having what I want when I want it.

I had intended to buy a 5D Mk II when the Mk III was released but after having a play with the new Mk III in the store there was no way I could settle for the previous model. This camera is fantastic, it handles light beautifully and the depth of colour is stunning.

I am still getting to grips with the movie side as I am a photographer not a movie maker but have to say that for completing my degree and starting my career, this camera has given me a huge advantage. It allows me to follow through my creative vision with ease and professionalism. I can now deliver the image I've set out to make in less shots and with way less editing. I haven't needed to tweak the Camera Raw sliders as much, and am pretty much just sharpening in PS as the photo I set out to take is the photo I can now achieve in camera.

This is an impressive upgrade and I'm glad I sat tight and waited for this model to arrive.
