As expected, Canon announced the 5Diii – The spec list was pretty much exactly as posted yesterday.

Price is $3499 body only at BH: Canon 5Diii – and Supposedly ships near the end of the month.

Suffice it to say the main improvements are in the the new gapless sensor, amazing focusing systems, new processor, ISO expansion, some nice software and audio control type improvements. Spot Metering is down to 1.5%. Solid improvements all around on paper.

No Video RAW format or really anything else ground breaking, however, it is my understanding that the image quality is STUNNING. I guess we will have to wait and see. It is also my understanding that the 5Dii will not be immediately discontinued either.

I hope to get my hands on one of the very first available so I can get to work on the testing of it.
