Canon 5D Mark 3

The third generation Canon 5d has arrived. Canon 5d Mark 3 is one of the worlds best digital cameras in every aspect, and certainly an improvement over 5d mark 2. It will compete with Nikon's new and shiny D800 in the entry level professional camera market.

Canon 5d Mark 3 is an excellent camera with:
- Full frame 22.3MP sensor
- DIGIC 5+ Imaging Processor
- 61-point autofocus coming from the professional 1D series
- 6fps continuous shooting, a huge improvement for sports.
- 1080p Full HD video recording with 24p, 25p and 30p, even 720/60p with H.264 compression.
- ISO 100 to 25,600 in the standard range (50-102,400 in a special push mode)

Above all, 5d Mark 3, as its predecessors, is a small camera (relatively to professional full frames like 1D ) easy to carry with you all day long. It also has a nice and large viewfinder, and a magnesium-alloy body, making it an excellent camera for travel, family pictures, and -for the first time in the 5d series - sports (!) with it's 6 frames per second. It also has great video capabilities, making the Mark 3 the best all-around digital camera on the market today.

The Canon EOS 5D Mark 3 will go on sale at the end of March, priced at $3,499 body-only. A kit with the EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM zoom lens will be priced at $4,299.
