Coinciding with Canon’s 25th anniversary, the Japanese imaging company has announced the launch of the EOS 5D Mark III. The successor to the 5D Mark II which was introduced in 2008, the 5D Mark III is a full frame DSLR equipped with a 22.3-megapixel sensor. It also packs a fast new processor and shares a number of features with the flagship 1D X.

Key specifications:

  • 36 x 24mm Full Frame CMOS Sensor
  • 22.3 Megapixels
  • DIGIC 5+ Processor
  • 61-point High Density Reticular AF System (41 Cross Types)
  • ISO 100-25600
  • Multiple Exposures
  • High Dynamic Range (HDR) Shooting
  • Advanced EOS Movie
  • 2x Card Slots (CF and SD)

The 5D Mark III is scheduled for release this March. Compared with the Nikon D800, the 5D Mark III will sell at higher costs: US$ 3,499 for the body and US$ 4,299 with the Canon EF 24-105mm F/4 lens.

At the time of writing, our colleagues overseas were fortunate to personally meet the 5D Mark III at its launch in Singapore. Meanwhile, a representative from Canon Marketing Philippines told us that it will be launched at the end of March or sometime in early April. The local price is yet to be finalized.
