Canon's 5D Mark III is a follow-up to the company's groundbreaking 5D Mark II, which was the digital SLR that brought HD video recording into professional-level DSLRs. The Mark III steps into these big shoes with a number of improvements including a 22.3-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor, faster burst mode at 6 frames per second, a new autofocus system and improved low-light shooting.
The Mark III offers a pair of memory card slots (one for SD and one for CompactFlash), a 3.2-inch display, Canon's Digic 5 processor and compatibility with Canon's lineup of EF-series lenses.
The price tag is not for the faint of heart: you'll pay $3,499 for the body-only. EF lenses will cost you extra. But if you're a true photo-enthusiast or working professional, most reviewers agreed that the 5D Mark III is a worthy investment.
