Thanks to B&H Photo for making the 5D Mark III available for testing.
The initial thrust of my reporting for the Canon 5D Mark III will be:
- Image quality compared to the Canon 5D Mark II (noise as it affects real images, dynamic range, etc).
- Ergonomics/usability compared to the Canon 5D Mark II.
- How the Canon 5D Mark III compares to the Nikon D800 for making real images with the best visual impact and overall image quality. I will spare my readers the studio scenes methinks— I want to know myself how these two cameras behave out in the field at ISO 100, and that includes diffraction and depth of field, which will intrude on the D800 resolution.
- (When the 1D X arrives) Image quality compared to the Canon 1D X.
Please see my Canon gear page for ordering the 5D Mark III and other gear. Watch my gear pages for in-stock status (blue for in stock, red for out of stock). On most working days, this is updated every 30 minutes.
