5.0 out of 5 stars Solid upgrade to a great camera, May 2, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Canon EOS 5D Mark III 22.3 MP Full Frame CMOS Digital SLR Camera with EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens (Electronics)
I have had a few canon bodies over the years from film into digital I purchased the 5dm2 new the first week it came out... that camera was a giant step forward from my 20D... I also have the 7D and have used a 1DmIII and 1DmIV for many events... I have to say that the autofocus on this camera is up there with the 1d series and I am personally seeing about a 1 stop addition in ISO. (I would have zero issues blowing up shots taken at 1000iso to poster size... it is that good...SD card is a bit like an after though but isn't a big deal to me... I don't shoot video so cant tell you about the video capabilities or quality. The 24-105 lens is a great lens especially stopped down to about F8. good contrast and edge detail, at the wide 24mm side there is a little bit of barrel distortion... but it is so minor most will not see it and if you are using a program like lightroom it is very easy to fix

Alex, are you having light leak issues? Has it been affecting your pictures? I have a 5D3 from the first batch, and i have not notice any light leak issue at all.

You wouldn't need to return it to Amazon you would contact Canon, from my understanding over it they are doing fixes for free. Also I rented one to test before I bought and it had a 1 in the 6th digit I tried it out in many capabilities and settings and never had any light leak issues. What is it you are concerned about??

Good Luck!!
