Canon 1D mkIII hands on preview

Unfortunately a 5 minute preview. But enough to see the significant step forward, that Canon has made with this model. The size remains the same, while being a lot lighter. The specs don't show the real picture regarding the camera weight. It feels like it's half as light as its predecessor. They finally got rid of the clumsy controls, AF is even faster, now it's insanely fast. And the sound of the shutter at 10 fps is orgasmic.

When production model (this was pre-production) will be available, I'll do a complete test. I guess sometime in June...
