Got mine yesterday with stereo mic, 128GB SDXC and 17-40L. It's replacing my 40D with 10-22 EF-s and so far I've become fully familiar with 90% of features. really logical in layout and function.

Just got the Pixel Grip and SIgma 85 1.4 to buy and I'm set with the wide, 50 1.4 and the 85 for my shooting needs.

The performance is superb, ISO3200 on the 40D bears more bad noise than ISO 12,800 on the 5D. It also shoots at 7FPS, not the rated 6. The 40D shoots at 7.8FPS as opposed to 6.4. Canon have always been conservative in their ratings.

I have the Mark III as well and I love it. Totally worth the upgrade over Mark II. The AF system alone is worth it, not to mention everything else that has been considerably improved. I honestly couldn't be happier with a camera if I tried.

Pixel Vertex Grip arrived the other day, build quality seems very good, the inside base is metal as is the ceiling, it seems sturdy on the tripod as well and the grip rubber quality is a mirror of the 5D's own grip. All buttons seem to work fine and battery info is reported correctly by the camera!

Only time will tell how the plastic areas wear down with use. The Meike grip on the 40D wore quite well in this regard but the pixel grip feels stronger mostly due to its tighter construction (lower profile).

128GB SDXC~?!!?!?!??!

Man, I've been out of the gear loop for a while. Biggest card we have at work is a CF 32gb and we're on 1DXs, 5D IIIs/IIs and older 1Dsomethings.

Well I just bought one. 2975 with 6% back from amazon and 2% cash on AX so that is a good deal for me. Excited to get to the post office on friday.

OK just got the 5Dm3 2 weeks ago. I LOVE IT. So different compared to the 40D but I am getting used to it now. The quality of photos is better with the camera

Hey guys so I'm trying to record at 60fps and the camera suddenly stops recording after 2 seconds. Any idea what's going on?
