- 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.

We caught up with David Parry at Focus 2012 to find out a little more on the Canon 5D Mark III.
This new AF system offers multi-zone wide-area AF for better tracking, has 5 central dual cross-type points (f/2.8 diagonal), 21 central cross-type points (f/5.6 horizontal & vertical) and 20 outer cross-type points (f/4.0 horizontal), and is sensitive in extremely low-light situations (EV-2 for a central point with a f/2.8 lens). With the new firmware update installed, cross-type autofocusing with the center AF point is possible even when the maximum aperture of a Canon EF lens/extender combination becomes as small as f/8.
The Canon Sample images can be found here on the Canon website.

Comments about Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR Camera Body:
I expected this to be the 5D II with a few tweaks here and there. I have been surprised at just how much better this camera is than its predesessor.The new focusing system is astonishingly good. So much better than my mkII that I thought I was using it incorrectly at first! Additionally, the new exposure controls are excellent. I shoot weddings in AV as like everything wide open and soft, adjusting ISO to manage shutter speeds. I now have the ability to set ISO to auto and select a slowest shutter speed and highest ISO. I can now concentrate on making images and not my camera. Image quality is a slight improvement on the mkII, which says alot as the mkII was excellent.I have noted the only con with this camera is the price, although having said that I think this is a bargain for what you get. Its the fact that the Nikon D800 is considerably cheaper that I say this. Is the mkIII as good as the D800? If you are not invested in a system (Canon or Nikon) then the numbers say the D800 is the one to buy. Having used the 5DmkIII I doubt the D800 offers me anything other than price. Could I use the extra resolution? Maybe, but practically no, athough it would be nice to have.Numbers aside, as a tool this is at the top of the game. It feels beautifull, performs even better and is a joy to use.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great camera but overpriced
About Me Photo Enthusiast
There's no denying it's a great camera. It does produce lovely images. I moved from a 500D and while it's better than that it's not stunningly better. I think people exaggerate "betterness". I think you see more improvment in better Glass than in a better camera. Sub £2000 might be a reasonable price for the camera but it's been priced too high. It's biggest competitor is the Nikon D800. It's not clearly better than that an so cannot justify it's higher price tag. I think Canon has made a strategic mistake. The MP war is not over.The camera needed a distinct advantage over the D800. A higher dynamic working range would have been one thing that could distinguished it or far superior video. You get the impression Canon partially handicapped it to be less than it could have been (but charged a premium price).If you buy it you won't be disappointed in the camera. The question is it worth the asking price. Here I have doubts. Canon is messing with it's customers and will lose new customers to Nikon.
