Canon EOS 5D Mark III hands-on preview

Photo nerds:

Canon EOS 5D Mark III hands-on preview and video: Digital Photography Review.

Here’s the video from

From the specs, it looks like more of an incremental update; a lot of features trickling in from the higher end Canon cameras. The last update for the 5D was in the fall of 2008. Here is a comparison page that shows the differences between this new camera, the 5D Mark II and the Nikon D800.

Can’t wait to see the sample shots from this camera.

    I will never need that much camera, but you go right ahead!

    Oh, Jesus! Can’t wait for the photos. I’d love to update my Canon Rebel EOS XTi someday but it’s so nice and small for an SLR and fits my hands well. This one seems much bigger but it would also kick my camera’s ass.

    To be honest?  The most exciting thing about this is that it’s not replacing the MK II, but rather is meant to sit between that and the new 1DX or whatever it’s called. :)  That means the MK II is going to see an even further price drop, making it an INCREDIBLY attractive camera to pick up.  Out of the 3 (Mk II, Mk III, and D800) I would definitely choose the Mk II.
