I held out for years after buying the original 5D, and so the Mark III has been a wonderful upgrade. It's easy to use, and the noise reduction is magical. Love it.

The smartest camera I've owned, yet

By Baconcat

Comments about Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR Camera Body Deluxe Kit:

I've worked with Nikon and Canon both, and like them each for their own reasons. To me, this camera is intuitive and easy to use, diverse in what it's capable of, and altogether well designed. You can easily pass it to someone who knows nothing about DSLR's and they can take incredible photos in auto or you can dive deep into the logistics of producing the perfect shot, with all the features available. I'm very happy with this purchase and can't wait see what creations come from it.

Comments about Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR Camera Body Deluxe Kit:

It took me a very long time to search and make decision on the final new full frame canon package. Ordering it from B&H was easy and fast. All accessories were perfect and affordable . Love the camera and new lens.

Awesome camera!

By Mac

from Sarasota, FL

Comments about Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR Camera Body Deluxe Kit:

In love with the focusing and quality this camera provides. From going from a crop sensor upgrading to this full frame camera, I'm absolutely in love. Shot a wedding on it just having it two days and had a flawless performance. Settings are easy to change and there's such an ease in tuning what you're shooting for. Would recommend this to any serious photographer. Only thing I do miss is the have button focus, it's just fluid. But it just takes some getting used to.

Amazing deal.

By Harold McKenney

from Washington

Comments about Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR Camera Body Deluxe Kit:

I have been looking for a good package deal on the 5D Mark III for a while. This was the best for me. The battery grip is good quality and dual charger is the same. I haven't used the trigger but rarely need one. The screen protector is of good quality and easy to install. The camera bag is a bit small but adequate for one camera a few lenses and a flash. I use it for my speed lights, spare batteries, and triggers.

Comments about Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR Camera Body Deluxe Kit:

Upgraded from Canon 60D to the Mark III, after carefully weighing the pros and cons (I do photography on the side of my day job which provides my actual income, so this was not an easy decision as this camera is expensive)! I've only rented this camera for one day, and now have owned for about a week so this review won't be super in depth. So far, I have no regrets purchasing it! My Canon 50mm 1.4 produces images FAR better on the Mark III than my 60D, as well as my 70-200mm 2.8 is even more superb than before (GET THAT LENS). It's a big expense to buy this camera, but if you're venturing into professional photography like I am, I think it's worth it.

Comments about Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR Camera Body Deluxe Kit:

For the vast majority of photographers, this camera will do all that you want it to. Maybe a few professionals will require something more, but even they will not be disappointed. Reliable, has great pictures, and after the learning curve that comes with every digital camera, you can settle in to your picture taking rather than your "camera learning." It's a bit heavy, but we're talking about getting the best pictures, aren't we? To be used only with a high quality lens, otherwise there's no point. A camera/lens combo is only as good as its weakest point.

Comments about Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR Camera Body Deluxe Kit:

An incredible camera. The goodies make it that much better. Grip, batteries, charger, SD card, yadda yadda? Screaming deal. Oh, the pictures? If you havent't figured it out already, this camera is amazing. Compared to my 7D, it is more solid, and the low light performance is off the charts. Only drawback is outdoor sports photography, and maybe bird photography, due to the lower frame rate. For me, a lot of my sport photography is in hockey arenas, so the low-light abilities of the 5d3 waaaaaaay out weigh (pardon the pun) the frame speed of the 7d. I will hang on to the 7D as a second body for my soccer photos, and to lure my daughter further into the world of photography!

    Comments about Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR Camera Body Deluxe Kit:

    I am not going to go into details of how good is the Mark III, if you know you need it, because you are a pro, chances are you already have it.

    But the kit that comes with this jewel is top notch, especially the battery grip. Do not expend the extra cash in the Canon one, as this is as good as that one. You can go Canon if you are a purist, but I see no other reason.

    The rest of the kit, including camera batteries, shutter and bag are great quality.

    Best buy for your money.

    Comments about Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR Camera Body Deluxe Kit:

    The 5D mark III speaks for itself. Save time. Just buy it. The price of the camera with the Deluxe Accessory Kit is paid for by the battery grip alone. On top of that you get 2 additional batteries and a double charger with a lcd readout. The charger is FAST! The memory should come with the camera anyway, but since it doesn't,the flash saves you even more money,...a lot more (price them and see for yourself).The camera bag is bulky but if you need it, it works. Otherwise, buy the backpack instead.This is the first time I received lens cleaner. If you are a professional or Advanced amateur buy with the kit. If not, you can learn the hard way and pay much more later. Oh, don't be cheap. Insure your purchase! The only thing I ever insure are my cameras and lenses. Had to use it once. Can you say, "Peace of mind?"
