    Iím pleased to say that the camera that I have had for the past two weeks is not only a worthy successor to the 5D Mark II, it is in my opinion just about as perfect a camera as you will ever handle.

    So are there any negatives to owning this camera? Maybe just one. You will lose the ability to blame the camera for any shortcomings in your own photographic ability.

    I expect the 5DIII will be a brilliant camera. Grin It is what most people would have said a year ago to produce to replace the 5D II
    shame about the price Sad
    A lot of people will still get hung up on the D800 having more pixels Sad
    I expect the D800 will be a brilliant camera Grin
    shame about the price Sad
    I expect both cameras to produce excellent images and only Zen masters will be able to produce images that any of us here say are significantly different. Grin

    I am forming a group to do a bank raid to fund purchase of both cameras. Anyone else in Grin

    I'm in! Grin

    I know, on EPZ, we are sufficiently informed to look beyond quantity of pixels. But..... surely Canon cannot allow Nikon to rule the megapixel roost with what will no doubt be presented as a "Digital MF busting" DSLR like the D800?

    A 'Canon 3D' (confusing nomenclature!) has been touted - well on the internet anyway! - for several years. This could be a higher resolution version of the 5D III, if it were ever to materialise. At an even higher price of course, i.e. stratospheric!

    OK, I'm in as long as it's a Halifax.

    Hate the Bar Stewards.

    Bagsy the 5D Mk3

    I was going for Lloyds because that damned music gets into my head and sticks there.

    The Halifax give you more so it would have to be for the Nikon.

    Sadly they became defunct in 1991 but, hey................ they may be a collector's item now! Maybe you could get enough money for them at auction to buy a 5D3 ! Grin

    But the shop you used to "trade in" the stamps for goods is still around, now known as Argos

    Sounds like Canon have done a brilliant job. I particularly like that things were done for technical and usability reasons rather than marketing reasons.
