Canon recently issued a firmware update for the 5D Mark III to version 1.3.3. The new firmware provides for the following improvements and fixes:
- Improves the AF controllability when shooting in Live View mode with a wide-angle lens (fixed focal length or zoom).
- Corrects some incorrect indications on the “English” and “Russian” menu screens.
You can download the firmware here on Canon’s website.
Canon has brought the MAP (minimum advertised price) of the 5D Mark III down to $2799, which effectively becomes the new “retail” price. Additionally, the price drop comes in conjunction with a $300 instant savings for a limited time, which means you can buy the Canon 5D Mark III today at $2499 from US retailers. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
Likewise, the Canon 5D Mark III kit with the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens gets a corresponding price drop and instant savings rebate – making it $3099. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
Both deals also include 2% rewards from B&H, as well as several other freebies.

New rumors suggest that both the Canon 5D Mark IV and the 1D X Mark II will be announced early in 2015 (in the Jan/Feb time frame). The Canon 5D Mark III was announced in March 2012, while the 1D X was announced in October 2011. As such, early next year would be a fitting replacement time frame for both cameras. [Read more…]
