EOS 5D Mark III Reviewed By User, And Two Cool 5D3 Bundles

Time to come back to the glorious EOS 5D Mark III. As I wrote before, I prefer user generated gear reviews. Although such a review is not comparable with tests made in a lab setting (obviously), user reviews are often closer to real world problems and settings. In other word: as much as I am interested to learn about the details and to know all the technical measures, there is nothing as a review made by a photographer who wants to know how his or her gear performs in every day usage. photographyreview has such a review, written by an admittedly expert user.
