Got this for my Christmas self pressie as an upgrade from 350D. Probably not 4 times as good (comparing price to price) but so much better nevertheless. Seemed a better upgrade than going to 20D or 30D. More complicated to set up and use but thats half the fun of photography for an amateur like me. I just love gadgets and playing - great!! If you take in RAW then everything can be improved after all. I am still learning on this camera The picture quality is first class even up to 1600 ISO. The colours are sharp and crisp The full frame is more than a bonus. With a wide angle lens you can almost see behind you!! On my old 350D I had to deliberately move the camera down so as not to cut off the top of the subjects heads. Now I have to move it up so as not to have too much clear space above the subject! Perhaps the only complaint is that with some pictures regardless of which lens I use at the extremes of the focal length top and bottom there is a very very slight darkening in the four corners which suggest the light is not hitting the sensor totally evenly over the whole frame. This is not a great problem as it is a simple matter to adjust the focal length a bit but perhaps should not be there?

aluminium L-Bracket for the Canon 5D MKIII. When attached it allows full access to all the switches, including full use of the remote control, and battery drawers and allows quick changes from horizontal to vertical composition and vice-versa without having to adjust your tripod and/or tripod head. The Kirk L-Bracket also helps to protect the camera body and keeps the weight of the lens and body over the tripod's centre of gravity. The L-Bracket from Kirk attaches directly to Kirk Ball Heads and other 'Arca-Type' heads."
