New sensor, focusing and metering systems
The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is built around a new 22.3 megapixel full-frame, self-cleaning CMOS sensor and promises high perforance and claims improved noise reduction at higher ISOs with its DIGIC 5+ sensor and up to 6 frames per second burst rate in RAW and JPEG. Additional technological advancements include an Intelligent Viewfinder, Canon's advanced iFCL metering system, High Dynamic Range (HDR), and Multiple Exposure mode.
A newly-designed 61-Point High-Density Reticular AF system is said to be Canon's most sophisticated AF to date, featuring multi-zonewide-area AF for better tracking. A new dedicated AF menu tab saves users from digging through menu functions. A new Multi-layer iFCL (intelligent Focus Color Luminance) metering system takes color and luminosity surrounding chosen AF points into account, whichCanon says will provide new levels of accuracy in fast-changing, tricky light.
Another new feature is High Dynamic Range (HDR); the Canon EOS 5D Mark III can merge 3 images at different exposures to create a final image with a broad range of shadow and highlight detail. In-camera HDR can cover a range up to +/- 3 stops in five different settings. The camera's control layout has been changed, with Canon adding more customizable controls and a new ergonomic design. A new "intelligent viewfinder" includes 100% coverage and a dual-axis electronic level indicator.
Improvements in video capture

Upgraded to full frame, decided on the 5D III over the 6D by my wife's direction (she didn't want me upgrading to something else, again). I shoot mainly people / events so I thought the 6D would be better bang for the buck, however oddly, I found myself actually using the 6 Frames per second, something I never thought I'd use. More impressive is the 61-Point AF, at first it seems complicated, you quickly get the knack for it in a day and it actually is VERY handy once you know how to use it. ...View full Review

Superior ISO sensitivity and noise control as is well known on Canon Full frames, the CF output beats the stuff out of SD output (using a 1000x rated UDMA 7 CF card). Weight isn't bad actually, grows on you quickly, built very well. No complaints on Refurb. My opinion, save your money and pick one up.

This is just one man's experience but my 5Diii purchased in April 2012 has died on me after less than 3 months of very gentle use.

This is just one man's experience but my 5Diii purchased in April 2012 has died on me after less than 3 months of very gentle use. It simply would not power on one day - no damage, no drop - just stopped working. Returned to Canon USA repair center at a shipping cost of $50 to me. A week later I have received the camera back with the service order saying the power supply was defective and has been replaced & all functions have been tested and confirmed as working - they are not. The camera was returned to me and it still will not power on. Obviously I was very upset and called Canon to demand they replace my brand new, very expensive camera body that has now twice proven defective - they won't. I will be forced to send the camera back to them yet again for "repairs" and hope that it is returned to me working this time. Even if they somehow fix the problem I have no guarantee this is not going to be a recurring problem for the life of the camera and the warranty on the repair only lasts 6 months - this is less than the factory warranty on the original purchase - how does that make sense? Sure it's a great camera when it works but based on this experience I cannot recommend it. If you're going to purchase this camera please do yourself a favor and also purchase additional repair coverage as I did - you could be stuck with a defective camera too.

First of all, this camera was an "open box" item, so I should address any concerns there - the camera inside was brand new, packaged like new and everything was included that was promised. The box it came in was excellent, no concerns there. I'm a professional photographer and videographer - and have been a long-time user of Canon products. I've shot with a 7D for a few years and most recently, a 6D for the last two years. Once you go full-frame, you'll never want to use a crop sensor again. The colors are very rich and low light capabilities are remarkable. The biggest advantage of the 5D Mark III over the 6D (and the reason I upgraded) is definitely the focusing capabilities. If you shoot anything with fast or unpredictable movement, you'll want the AF speed of the 5D for stills. The 5D weighs slightly more than the 6D, and the small increase in size is actually preferable, because it fits my hands better. I shoot a weekly broadcast television program with this camera and also portraits and landscape photography. It suits all of these needs perfectly.
I purchased a T2i about 5 years ago as my first DSLR. I really enjoyed the heck out of it and it opened up a new hobby/passion that should last a lifetime. Fast-forward 5 years later; I'm ready to step-up my game. I now know enough to know why I am missing shots and what I really need to take this to the next level. I read all the reviews, changed my mind at least 3-4 times and then pulled the trigger on the 5DMII and the 24-70M/L Lens. I just got back from a week in Alaska and I can honestly say I am so happy to have made this upgrade. The picture quality, focusing, and rapid fire helped me pull out some very difficult nature shots that otherwise wouldn't have been possible.
Always a pleasure to buy from Adorama, this was my 2nd Canon 5d mark 3. Mostly use it for weddings. Very happy with it.
Bought it for my brother who is semi professional upgraded from 6d and he loves it.
I upgraded from Canon 7D to full frame Canon 5D Mark III and I am happy to say that the photos are fantastic. I loved the 7 D, but this was a seriously great upgrade for me!
Great camera. Takes very high quality images . I'm very happy with this camera. This is my 3rd Canon after an AE-1 program and an EOS 1 Ds. The menu is very intuitive and very easy to learn to use.
Purchase the 5d mark iii 6 weeks ago. All of sudden it stopped powering up. Went completely dead. Using original canon batteries. Vey disappointing that after spending several thousand dollars I have received a "lemon".
Older professionals are looking to shed weight. A camera bag with 2 5D Mark III bodies, three lenses, 2 flashes, batteries, filters, etc. weighs a lot. If traveling you can shed a flash unit and maybe a lens. The move is mirrorless lighter camera and lenses. Canon is not only not listening or reading but coming out with a 50 megapixel camera to get in the big pixel game. Unfortunately it is way beyond pricey if the news is correct. My canons have served me well for 20 plus years but going to switch to light in every way.
After using my 70D for a year and looking for a second camera, I decided to go full frame with the 5Diii. In principle because of lower noise at higher ISO. The 5Diii has exceeded my expectations, especially in low light conditions such a photographing concerts with high ISO settings. Focus is very fast, and I recommend the battery grip for extended time of camera use though adds to the bulk and weight, but worth it. My main cons are the poor/slow AF in live view and absence of touch-tilt LCD screen. The 70D will remain my GoTo video DSLR, which it was well designed.
