November 2012 - I am a full time professional wedding photographer. I shoot with a combination of cameras, notably the Fuji X-Pro1 and the 5D range of cameras from Canon. The 5D2 was the first full frame body I owned and I ended up working my way through three of them. So, when the 5D3 was announced I was really quite excited about it.

March 2012 - "Today, after three years of rumour and speculation Canon has officially announced the Canon 5D Mark III. Building on the 5D Mark II the new camera (we’re told it’s not going to replace the mark II), the 5D Mark III closes the gap between the 5D and 1D series cameras...Read More »
Firmware Update 1.2.3 - 21st October 2013
Canon has released a new firmware update for the Canon 5D Mk III. Firmware Version 1.2.3 is for EOS 5D Mark III cameras with firmware up to Version 1.2.1. If the camera’s firmware is already Version 1.2.3, it is not necessary to update.
For more information on what is included and how to download, please visit the Canon website here.
Without the Canon 600EX-RT flashgun (or E3-RT Transmitter) installed on the camera you can’t wirelessly control another flash. To control a slave from the 5D Mark III, or any other EOS camera for that matter, you will need a master of some sort on the hot shoe (either a 600EX-RT or a ST-E3). Full support of the 600EX with the 5D MK III means that you get full control of the flash using the LCD. And full support of AF assist – the 600EX has support for all the focus points of the 5D MK III. The 5D MK III does not feature a built-in flash.
We caught up with David Parry on the Canon Stand at Focus 2012 to find out a little more on the new Canon 5D Mark III.

A waste of money
Appalling image quality & poor focusing. I thought the camera was faulty, Canon assured me it was not. I have been a photographer for 40 years, this is the worst piece of equipment I have ever purchased. I will stick to my EOS1 Ds MkIII the best camera I have ever purchased. Why did canon discontinue this model?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
About Me Casual Photographer
I bought the 5d3 to replace a lumix gx1 which was good but did not do everything I wanted. In reality there is no comparison apart from they both take pictures. Took a bit of getting use to the weight with the battery grip on, two batteries and the 70/200 lens though.

Canon EOS 5D Mark 3
By Robert Yardley
About Me Pro Photographer
I upgraded from the 5D Mark 2 to the Mark 3 after reading about the good low light performance, better weathersealing and solid robust construction. It has all of those, plus it has the same autofocus features as the 1DX, with it's own expansive menu to cater for all of the options available. This sits well alongside my other main camera, the 1D mk 1V. I use the 5D mk3 for all of my commercial work, which is often in low light conditions. I use the MY Menu part of the menu to recall my most used settings ( it only allows 6 though). When photographing business seminars or stage performances I can switch off the beep focus confirmation sound, and switch on silent mode (much quieter than the 1D mk 1V)so the camera is silent. dual card slots are great too. It's more expensive than the 5D mk2 was, but I can see why after using it for a few months.
Why did I wait so long!!
By Bob the Butler
I thought that the cost of upgrading from my MKII would not be worth while. How wrong was I?The MKIII is streets ahead on almost all counts - I just love using it at every opportunity, especially now I have the 70-200 F2.8 USM IS. I use it mostly to photograph my wife competing in dressage events - stunning results that just keep getting better the more I get used to it.

Simply fantastic camera
This camera is stunning and well worth the money.The auto focus performance is first class with 41 cross type focus points. The AF system is also fully customisable.High ISO performance is great, allowing me to go to 3200 or beyond when I need to, to get the shot and still get professional results.Image quality is stunning with really accurate metering and excellent dynamic range.Dual card slots give me back up peace of mind.Silent shutter mode is really great when I need to be as decrete as possible.Add cinema quality 24fps video, weather sealing, 100% viewfinder coverage, excellent LCD and great battery performance plus many little extras (like one touch 100% zoom on the point of focus) and you have the wedding/event photographers dream camera. If you are serious about your photography and can affort it - get one - you wont be disappointed.
Great Camera for the money - beautifully
If it could evaluate the expose based on all the cross type focus point that would make it 5 stars.Otherwise delighted with its performance.it can focus in the dark!
A MUST HAVE
By Paul Moss
from Macclesfield Cheshire
This is a must have, the image quality is brilliant. The new AF system is really impressive and the build quality is excellent. I use this for Landscapes , weddings and portraits and believe me you wont be disappointed.
I love this camera! - Near Perfect IQ
About Me Semi-pro Photographer
Beautifully built, great battery life, fabulous image IQ.Great Ergonomics, fantastic low light performance.My rating 9/10.Only slight negatives, if it had a faster SD card slot, that would be helpful and it would get 5 Stars. But this does work fine for my needs and records 1080p video with no problem.Overall a dream camera.The manual needs beefing up on the detailed explanation on how to use it for video.Ideally I would also like a 1/250 min flash sync speed not 1/200. But I can live with that as everything else is pretty much perfect.Knowing everything I would definitely buy again.Great service and deal from WEX. The battery grip really makes it very useable in Portrait mode.
Top quality camera
By F1 Dan
Upgraded from the Mk II and this has to be the best full frame camera I have ever used. The new features and improvements from the previous version are very welcome and the image quality is superb. It may seem a pricey item but if you are looking for a pro quality body, it is well worth the money. I use it for a variety of applications including wedding shoort, travel and just every day photos and the camera is well suited to them all.
