As wrote in the last post on Canon 550D, I moved to Canon 5D3 in the winters of 2012. I was almost two years into being an enthusiastic photographer and was getting all the more excited for being a serious one, albeit still at the hobbyist level. There was also a serious consideration whether to move to Nikon system or stay with Canon and I spent many days visiting the showrooms of Canon and Nikon (and Sony) to try out their latest cameras and figure out which one I was most comfortable with.
Over the course of that two months of research and indecision, I realised what I was always being told – there is nothing like the best camera, there is nothing like the best lens or technology. The camera from one of these top companies is only as good as any of them and there is really no point in trying to get the “best of the best”. Also, thanks to dpreview forum and kenrockwell.com and the-digital-picture.com guys for responding to my queries and I figured out that I will stay with the camera system I am comfortable with – hence Canon, and hence taking the top of the range (and newly launched) Canon 5D Mark III from them.
The technical specs mentioned below, as you can see, were quite impressive for the time:
