Review: Upgrading to the Canon 5D Mark III

But what if, like me, you’re a long time owner of Canon’s also well-loved 5D Mark II? I’ve owned the 5D2 since the day it was released, and have toted it with me to countless destinations. It has captured beautiful images of my family, my travels and has served me faithfully on the job.
