Review of Canon EOS 5D Mark 3 Body
Let me start by saying that this is my first DLSR camera. I've been shooting Leica RFs for the better part of 10 years so I have grown up basically shooting in manual mode since I started getting into photography. My kids are getting older now and my RF just can't keep up with the speed of their sports now so I had to make the plunge into DLSRs. Apparently I came into it at a good time with the 5DMIII and D800E releases. I did a lot of research and in the end I chose Canon for the following reasons:
1) I need speed so I was drawn to 6fps as well as the quality of ISO sensitivity at 3200/6400
2) I wanted a camera that is super easy to set up and adjust on the fly (wash between the Nikon and Canon)
3) I was drawn to the silent option on the Canon - it is incredibly subtle.
4) I liked the quick C1-C3 dials for customization of the camera. Nikon has it but it is awkward to use.
5) I wanted a walk around lens and the 24-105 just felt a heck of a lot more solid than the Nikon 24-120 - the Nikon felt super cheap and the double barrel would definitely be become a problem in terms of durability and shooting in the rain; which tends to happen a lot in Seattle.
I am impressed. I love the flexibility of this camera and I the image quality is excellent. I am definitely a perfectionist when it comes to image sharpness and I only shoot RAW so I tend to be a bit of a pixel peeper. While the 36MP was impressive on the D800E, in the end, I realized that when it comes to shooting the kids, family and friends, the Canon gave me more versatility. I also found the video capabilities to be pretty good even though I rarely use it.
All in all, for $4500 bucks, this camera kit is a good value for what you get. The 24-105 lens is very good especially considering that this is a kit lens. I had it out this past weekend shooting casual shots and the image quality is very sharp across the entire frame. The fit and finish is also very good. My M9 is still the preferred camera when I am out and about but I am genuinely impressed and surprised by the capability of the 5DMIII.
The Canon 5D MkIII and the Nikon D800 are two of the hottest cameras on the market so we put them to the test in our first of three videos. Local commercial photographer Nathan Elson (www.nathanelson.com) joins up with The Camera Store's Chris Niccolls to see how these two cameras stack up in the image quality department.
Special thanks to Mallory McGowan (www.MalloryMcGowan.com), our stylist for this shoot. Kevin Murray and Mark Langridge for their gracious assistance. Gina Baccari and Alina Cox for being our models, happily working throughout difficult conditions. Special thanks also to Nathan Elson for helping with his photographic expertise and able co-hosting.

For the second part of our D800 vs 5D Mk III shootout, we went out with photojournalist Mike Drew to shoot a horse cutting competition. Mike and The Camera Store's Chris Niccolls take a look at how these two cameras can handle fast action in extremely low light. We also see how the JPEG processing compares to the RAW files.
Special thanks to Mike Drew and Candice Edwards.
