Canon EOS 5D Mark III

Many of you are about this time gnawing on your fingernails waiting for the the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the latest in its enthusiast full-frame 5D camera.

With a 22MP full-frame sensor, this baby can shoot 6 frames per second and features a 61-point AF system much like the EOS-1D X. It can capture 1080p movies at 24, 25 or 30 fps.

I'm most curious about high ISO noise versus the 5D Mark II, as well as how well it corrects lateral colour fringes with Canon's lenses.  Any day now...
