Customer Review

on 9 December 2013
I bought one in the end
It is a really great camera but it isn't massively better than a 7D. I tried the 5D MKII but i really couldn't cope with it after the 7D, the snail like AF was impossible.

The MK3 is a better 7D with a full frame. Low light is excellent, the AF is really good - it is very hard to fault for photography. I don't do a lot of video but it is easier to use than the 7D and it is used professionally too so I guess that must be pretty good too.I now get to worry about vignetting and all my lenses are shorter which is a bit annoying.

I sleep with it next to my bed. Four stars as it is ragingly expensive and I feel guilty I bought it. £2300 is more than I spent on my car and it is three times the price of the 7D which is mad

In truth, my pictures are no better but I have probably managed a few keepers that I wouldn't have got with the 7D and I have spent £2300 and need to upgrade my L lenses or at least get something over 200.

Is this worth £2300 when the 7D is £7-800? No it isn't but if you can afford it who gives a crap :)

UPDATE After Christmas shooting 2013

It is a really great camera and I love it
being brutal the 7D is a much better buy than this even though the 5D is a better camera.

I had my 7D since they first came out and all my lenses are based around the crop sensor - I have never bought EF-S lenses only EFs so all my lenses work on either camera BUT...... the different perspectives you get FF v Crop and the fact that moving to FF you lose a lot of reach means you will need to invest in more glass field of view on a FF is 70-200 on that lens..........112 to 320mm on a 1.6 crop. i was using 50mm for portraits now I will need to get an 85 as well

I guess then point here is that MkII to MKIII is a no brainer as you have all the lenses anway.......... 7D to MKIII isn't as clear cut as you are making two upgrades. I guess this why a lot of sports and wildlife shooters use 7D a 300mm on the 7D with a 1.4 extender gives you 672mm. Trying that on a FF camera will cost you about £8k
