Thanks to this camera I have detailed pictures of my prostate. My prostate seems to be totally worn out by excessive milking.....

Hi All, I'm Patrick S. and I must say I'm really fond of this camera. Especially in the combination with a 70-300EF lens. The thing I like most is filming in that combination while shoving it up my nasty sphincter while rimming another boy, who then ejaculates all over my face.

La Canon 5d Mark III es una cámara técnicamente perfecta y maravillosa de usar. Con sus prestaciones sería difícil llegar al límite de sus posibilidades.

the T2i was one of the best performance to cost cameras ever. don't hate on the rebel line. no everyone has 3k to drop on a body.

Good luck getting cash for that POS sub $400 soccer mom camera. The rebel series needs to die off.

Definitely looking forward to upgrading to the 5D Mark III.  Then I can finally rid myself of my old T3i, and use the money from selling that to get a good L lens :D

Other than an autofocus system that should have been implemented a whole generation or two earlier, there is no serious compelling improvement over the MkII. With almost four years to develop a replacement, as a Canon user you should be very underwhelmed.

yes of course. first of all, you move from a cropped sensor to a full frame sensor. that means better noise performance and better dynamic range. also a shallower depth of field. second of all, A LOT more focusing point, even though 7D is great, 5Dm3 is much better and newer. It has 1DX's focusing system so it's great. it also shoots at 6fps (7D = 8 fps) but still very close. if you have the money, you really should go for 5Dm3

Can the $1000 price difference from the 7d be justified. How and why?
Enrique145 (7:46 PM, March 21, 2012)
45 cross-focus points Vs 15? Once again, I stick with Canon.
Jon D (9:38 AM, March 19, 2012)
Yeah, I'll go with the Nikon D800!  Not much improvement over the Mark II.
