anyways out of curiosity, anyone has used or tried both 1D4 and 5D3 before can give some comment on how 5D3 can compare to 1D4?
I tested the 16-35 II.
It is a parfocal lens.

Hey all photographer here... I would like to confirm if 5D mark III got any complimentary training course from Canon?

Yup sometimes we have to open up our mindsets and accept that not all people who buy a 1D/5D are seasoned users.
Maybe they are new to photography but can afford a high end camera, hopefully to take better pictures? Maybe they had been XXXD users and are new to the new functions on XD series? Or maybe they are ship jumpers from the dark side? Hopefully, with the complimentary course, they can make better use of their new camera
Now they are waiting for the 1DX, the "ultimate" EOS to see if they can have an extreme camera providing the extreme fast AF of 1D series, with the high ISO capabilities of 5D3 (due to the new Digic 5) processors.
1D4 AF is still better than 5D3 from your statement.so do u mean that shooting in extreme low light conditions,the AF for 5D3 will be better?Originally Posted by avsquare
And does ISO affect the AF?
Iam kinda confuse if u link them together or not?
From my knowledge,5D3 high ISO performance is definitely better in noise controlling. This in turn is more suitable for low light conditions.
Is this what U trying to imply?
Does anyone know if there's any notable difference between the single point spot, single spot, single + 4 spots or single + 8 spots AF? I've been using single+4 spots so I can see the AF boxes easier. Depending on the subject, it gets lost in the clutter quite easily sometimes.
I can't say I can see much difference using my naked eye...
