It’s way too easy to fall in love with the EOS 5D Mark III especially if you currently own a Mark II. I own two that I have enjoyed using extensively for work and occasionally for leisure. Returning the loaner unit this morning was an incredibly difficult experience especially after I’ve had so much fun with it for a few days straight. It’s now safely back in the hands of Interhouse Company where it’ll officially debut at the Camera and Travel Fair 2012 along side Canon’s new flagship, the EOS-1D X that I had the pleasure of handling this morning. Holding it with both my hands, its familiar weight and size was a walk down memory lane!
Canon has brought the best of the EOS-1D Series of digital cameras into one phenomenal model: the new flagship of the EOS line, the EOS-1D X. Its full-frame 18.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor and all-new Dual DIGIC 5+ Image Processors deliver high quality image capture at up to 12 fps (14 fps in Super High Speed Mode) and a powerful ISO range of 100 – 51200 (up to 204800 in H2 mode) provides sharp, low-noise images even in the dimmest low-light conditions. These images are also on my Facebook Page.

The dual joystick design on EOS-1D X has made its way onto the EOS 5D Mark III when fitted with the optional BG-E11 battery grip.
An all-new, 61-Point High-Density Reticular AF and 100,000-pixel RGB Metering Sensor that uses a dedicated DIGIC 4 Image Processor, makes the EOS-1D X reach new levels of focus speed and accuracy delivering advanced tracking even for the most challenging shooting situations. Taken all together, the EOS-1D X’s improved HD video capture, numerous connectivity options, combination of processing power and durable construction, including shutter durability tested to 400,000 cycles, make it the ultimate EOS.
