Pros: full frame, good quality, well build , AF well build, IT IS A GOOD MACHINE!

Cons: to expensive !!!

Opinion: i've got this camera from 2 years now. It is a good camera over all!! very good. Good construction. good features on it. too heavy, but it's professional. the AF sister is so fast and doing good job. Provide a good quality of picture, OK, now depends all of the lenses you are used. But with my canon 24-70 f/2.8 and the 70-200 f/4 L is working so good.

Pros: Just take it in your hand and talk to her, the feeling is immediate and extraordinary and you immediately realize that you have between your fingers a high-level professional camera that even today, in the photographic aspect fears few comparisons but in case does not go in awe with anyone , fantastic sensor and autofocus, grip that makes you drop the car in your hand like a glove and allows a perfect grip even with generous weight and size lenses, excellent tropicalization and 3.2" display, ability to customize almost everything, and the operational and configuration preferences on various buttons (in any case everything you need hand-made and even more...), the Joystick, the double slot, general ergonomics at the top, full and explanatory menus (exaggerated the section dedicated to customizations excellent autofocus system) and the various servo tracking modes). A machine that in its range of belonging in the commercial period of life, from 2012 to 2016 does not fear against anyone else except perhaps the 1DX series but only for a faster burst and little else, moreover from this inherits the autofocus system and more... , for me still a dream to be able to use it even if socket used with not a few shots but in excellent condition after trying and making without any remora the 6DMarkII, used 2 months but a disappointment for me incredulous on almost everything and far light years from the Mark III just s I can hold one and then the other to realize how they are on two separate and different floors, like the pupil and the professor... then also the 6dII has some excellent update features but overall, too little to think even remotely to rival in its sector, with this splendid reflex, everything else, compared to this. in the operating period, it is far away, like many other, light years.


Opinion: Photographing with this wonderful reflex for me is a dream and photos that makes with a disarming simplicity, once you have taken a sufficient confidence has incredible still today for the excellent definition, quality and naturalness of colors as well as cleanliness of the flie, up to 6400 iso photos manageable without too much trouble in posts with fine grain treatable with the appropriate rents but in certain situations you can climb without over-occupation even from 8000 to 12800 and also something more ' depends on the light conditions and context if you mediate the operational parameters well. in optimal light conditions and easel, you can shoot macros and close-ups even to F20 without qualms, the Mark III knows how to handle the diffraction very well leaving interpretive margins and/or intervention and workability in posts that are my satisfaction, as if the reflex deliberately left me that margin of intervention that I liked, on a work basis often already excellent but wanting, even with additional scope for creative evaluation that allows me to eventually transfer to the photo something of my own, a kind of "imprimatur personal" with each frame that I select between the shots that I consider most 'deserving of attention and to which I dedicate time and complete in post (sensations and obviously personal management interpretations). In any case, having it in your hand makes a feeling of "take" and spontaneous conviction that you can even put a cannon in your bayonet, which you and you will support it without problems while maintaining a balance that is always manageable even with freehand. Using little dispay in live view, the battery consumption decreases drastically and the duration as a result increases considerably and generally very satisfying especially with the latest LP E6N, then depends on us and the practical use we make of it, in any case With reflex of this caliber, you always travel at least with a spare battery. I could express other positives, but I think that the sense of the level of satisfaction felt immediately already on the first day of "trial" has taken away any doubt between her and "the other, a kind of customer satisfaction, from my point of view is at the highest level for the 5DIII, for years always expressed also by the competent and professional staff of the store that I have been serving for years and with whom I find myself very well for availability and advice. The biggest con for me maybe is not having it (If I had to change it in the future, I could only think of an update with a Mark IV, if the opportunity will happen at the time, but without haste, with this I could take it to the last breath without feeling particular needs of the "new", photographically lacks anything and the color and detail rendering of Canon for me is the top or anyway at the highest levels, then everyone prefers what he rightly likes, but photo in hand, I have not yet seen anything that can prevail the resulting from this wonderful camera. 10 ique it nor will ever assign it to any machine or objective because perfection does not exist (a concept that I have always extended to photos of any quality and carried out by anyone, including EPs) and the Mark III is no exception but for what it was and also and can give at very high levels without looking in anyone's face, not being able to give them "10" for the reasons mentioned above, I'll give it a very personal, undeserved 9.7.

Pros: Generous sensor, fast AF, spectacular multifunctional LCD.

Cons: Features in menus that require a discreet study of the manual, otherwise nothing to say.

Opinion: Extraordinary machine, from the top definition, for landscaping and details I highly recommend it to everyone, at the time, the choice was between her and the 1DS MKIII, but, given the difference in price, I opted for her and I did not regret it, for my photos was more than good. Excellent ergonomics, excellent balance with large optics thanks to its optional grip, excellent af, selectable very conveniently on the various points. The camera has a dual switchable memory slot, convenient to split your shots. With grip and two batteries, the range is a fairytale. Solidity and robustness make it a bodysuit almost at the level of series 1, really a great machine, I absolutely recommend it to all those photographers who are looking for a full frame with a Canon sensor and who need good detail.

Pros: Stability, solidity, operational security, elegance, very rich menu, top level professionalism, ISO, double slot (CF and SD), stunning AF, remarkable leap forward compared to the 5D Mk 2, 100% viewfinder, LCD 3.2' screen.

Cons: Menu too rich, ultrasensitive shutter button, weight.

Opinion: A camera with excellent and stunning performance. Canon has made an epochal leap forward, compared to its sister Mark 2. The features that I note most, in addition to being those that I especially need when I shoot, are the double slot for memory cards (CF and SD), a feature that I consider absolutely vital. Then the estate to high ISO, since I take several photos of interior. The 100% viewfinder: at 24mm there is the feeling of shooting with an ultra-wide angle!!! I could go on endlessly praising this camera. An authentic tank, as I likeit!!!

Pros: Professional body, double slot, operating speed despite age, advanced functions, very valuable autofocus.

Cons: Weight, footprint, video capacity (but it's a machine of 2012!), lack pop-up flash (for me it's not a big cons, but it can be)

Opinion: Socket used with few shots in the era of mirrorless... You can take it home now at reasonable prices, being often sold off. Despite the age of the project, it can be considered a definitive machine, at least speaking as an amateur photographer. It makes an impression even today, seven years after the exit. A tank... Very solid, excellent operating speed, double CF/SD slots, silent fairytale shot, suitably configured, ready-to-use JPEG churns, at the limit with a pp-skin.... Autofocus that I think is excellent, as well as being extremely flexible and widely configurable, although a bit ' difficult to master. Video side seems lacking, compared to today's monsters, but it is also obvious that it is so... And on the other hand I do not find it limiting, since I only do small pieces and the fullHD is more than enough. The high ISO yield for the age it has is not bad at all. The dynamic range is not great, but, always considering the age, I think it's great. It has the ability to connect microphone and headphones for audio monitoring, really great thing. The lack of flash pop up I haven't heard it yet... Although a filler every now and then, especially in strong contrast conditions would not be bad... Unique flaws are weight and size, but from a pro SLR body you can't expect a featherweight... The ergonomics is however exceptional, everything at hand and that falls to wonder. Balancing with heavy targets (tested with 70-200 2.8) is outstanding. In this historical period, in which the unhurried mirrorless race is relentlessly, you can find great bargains, bringing home a car for life. Really great on all fronts.
