Talking New Toy!!

It's finally here (5D M III) and I just ordered it. Just found out about it a little while ago, looked up the spec's and went ahead and ordered it. I'm certainly tickled about the beefed up AF system (essentially the same as in the new top-model EOS 1 X and also about the higher frame rate of 6 fps, not blazingly fast, but fast enough for most sports and it will certainly help with wildlife photography! Low Light shooting also promised to be improved big time ISO 50 - 100.400, improved dynamic range, 14bit - all good sturff. Another thing I really like is the availability to use multiple exposures (something I used quite often with my film cameras).The in-camera HDR feature, I'm not sure about, I don't think I'll have a lot of use for it. I did not mind that Canon did not raised the MP amount all that much, the M II actually had plenty and Canon improved the more important "shortfalls" of the M II. I think I'll be happy with the new model.
Greetings,

Stephan ( a happy one)

Congrats Stephan! I know you're going to get some beautiful shots with the new camera. Hope you'll show some of them off.
