Review summary from DPReview

DPReview Canon EOS 5D Mark III Overview

DPReview Gold AwardMay 2012

A super-flexible photographic tool that will get the job done on a wide range of assignments.
Lars RehmLars Rehm Andy WestlakeAndy Westlake Richard ButlerRichard Butler Andrew ReidAndrew Reid


The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is not only a very capable photographic tool in almost all areas, it’s also fun and exciting to shoot with. Slight JPEG softness is disappointing in a camera at this level but it’s only visible at pixel-level and we would expect most of the camera’s target group to shoot Raw anyway.

Reasons to buy

  • High resolution and detail in Raw files
  • Strong video features and control set
  • Sophisticated AF system
  • Very responsive and snappy operation
  • Excellent weather-sealed, magnesium alloy build

Things to consider

  • JPEGs lack detail compared to Raw files
  • Soft video output with less dynamic range than stills
  • Mono built-in microphone
  • No AF Illuminator

Suggested for

Photographers who want an extremely versatile photographic tool that is capable of great results in many shooting situations.
