After I fried my old Canon 7D including its attached zoom lens (when the popup flash shorted out), I did an exhaustive research for a new cam. So, I opted for a new full-frame Canon 5D Mark III and paired it with the best glass you can have -- an ultra-wide 16-35mm f/4L IS USM lens and another 24-105mm f/4L IS USM telezoom lens. Might as well go with the best out there! I also geared it up with 128GB 160MB/s CF Memory card (the fastest memory card out there); a Canon BG-E11 Battery Grip; UV, CPL, and ND Filters; and a Wireless Intervalometer/Timer/Controller. In addition, I added a 32GB Eye-Fi MobiPro Wireless SDHC card so I can tether the camera to an iPad and my iPhone -- solely using the iPad for photo proofing/previews. The plan is to shoot and store RAW to the CF card, and then JPEG to the Eye-Fi card.  No more holds barred! 


Here's an excerpt review taken from

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III announcement was perhaps the most anticipated camera announcement in history.

Key specifications

  • 22.3 Megapixel, full-frame CMOS sensor
  • 61-point AF with up to 41 cross-type AF points
  • Zone, Spot and AF Point Expansion focusing modes
  • DIGIC 5+ processor
  • Up to 6 fps shooting speed
  • ISO 100 to 25,600 (ISO 50, 51,200 and 102,400 with expansion)
  • +/- 5 stops of exposure compensation
  • HDR shooting in-camera
  • Full HD Movie shooting with ALL-I or IPB compression
  • 29 mins 59 sec clip length in Full HD Movie
  • Timecode setting for HD Movie shooting
  • Headphone port for audio monitoring
  • 59ms shutter lag
  • Transparent LCD viewfinder with 100% coverage
  • 3.2" (8.11cm) 1.04 million-pixel Clear View II LCD Screen
  • EOS Integrated Cleaning System (EICS)
  • CF and SD Card slots
  • Silent control touch-pad area
  • Dual-Axis Electronic Level

With that impressive set of specs, the Canon EOS DSLR product lines are now blurred. The 5-series DSLRs have traditionally been markedly lower-end than the 1-Series lineup (though not from an image quality perspective), but the 5D III now has an impressive number of 1-Series-grade features - including, amazingly, the incredible AF system from the 1D X. (I still could not justify the US$6,000 tag on a 1-series Canon! That is just the body, no lens yet!)
