Fotomessen 2012 ( 5D mark III )

Fotomessen 2012 #01

The yearly photo exhibition, Fotomessen @ Lillestrøm, deserved a visit this year, mostly because of the tremendous amount of professional camera equipment that has been announced lately. As a Canon user, the release of the 5d mark III, was the biggest surprise, and BOY was I eager to try it out!

Since I live in Norway, there weren’t a whole lot of people. YEY, no waiting in line! Btw, one of the canon guys guarding the two 5d’s was major douchebag.

The new autofocus system is maybe THE reason to upgrade from mkII. The body is designed alot like the 60D with rounded corners and the lock on the program/mode wheel. The menu system has been redone, though a lot of functions wasn’t available as this cleraly isn’t the final model.

Among other exciting news where the 1Dx. Paired with a 400mm f/2.8L mk II was simply insane.

Also, here is a picture of the new 24-70mm, (with G1x in the background) which has design similarities of the EF-s 18-135mm… Well, looking way better in red of course :p
