5.0 out of 5 stars An incredible camera - I LOVE this camera, 17 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Canon EOS 5D Mark III - SLR Digital Camera (Body only) (Electronics)
I have just purchased this superb piece of kit.

The resolution is truly amazing, the low light shooting at ISO 8000 is sharp and very low in noise.

The layout of all of the controls feels a natural evolution, (I have come along the D30, D60, EOS5 MKI route to the EOS 5D MKIII

The image quality is superb with amazing detail.

After initial problems with the batteries discharging, a firmware update seemed to sort this out and now this is just a superb, sublime piece of kit to use.

Is this only a problem for you when leaving the battery grip on?

Doug says:
Hi, i have not tried it without the grip, I am just taking the battery out, as the grip does not fit in my camera bag. It does not happen with a Tamron 100mm, or a 35 - 350 canon lens. But it does happen with a Sigma 24 - 70 f2.8.

If you google the problem I think you will see it affects several models, is a firmware issue and happens with and without the grip.

Hope this helps, I must add apart from this the camera is incredible.

I have had Canon 5d mk 3 with canon grip for over a year now and I have not had any problem with the batteries. I keep the camera grip mounted.

Hi Roger, thank you for your comment. I have noticed the problem does not happen when I have a Tamron 100mm attached, but it does drain with a Sigma 28 - 70. I also keep the grip mounted, as it is just too much hassle to take it off and on.

Other than this problem I LOVE the camera.

The image quality is superb.

Once again thank you for your comment.

I haven't experienced this issue you're reporting and I always leave the battery in the camera.

Doug says:
Thanks David, it is a recognised problem if yo Google Canon Battery Discharge you will see lots of discussions. The camera has not done it for a while, and in every other respect is an awesome camera..

Do you like yours?

You're very welcome, Doug. ... To be honest, you couldn't say I like this camera. I actually love the Canon 5D Mark III.
