Canon EOS 5D Mark III review
Test score %
Canon's EOS 5D was the first vaguely affordable full-frame DSLR and became one of the must-have cameras for professional and semi-pro photographers. The EOS 5D Mark III isn't quite so revolutionary, but it did promise a big step up from the EOS 5D Mark II, with a 22.1Mp full-frame sensor, a changed design and an overhaul of the image-processing and auto-focus systems. Is this still a great DSLR, or have its rivals overtaken it? We find out.
