Canon U.S.A. has issued a product advisory to users of its EOS 5D Mark III digital SLR camera. According to the company, “when the LCD panel illuminates in extremely dark environments, the displayed exposure value may change”. Canon says that this change in exposure value will not noticeably affect the captured image, but if you would like them to inspect your camera, they will provide this service free of charge upon request beginning in mid-May.

I am looking to upgrade to a newer Canon. I have always fancied a 7d but now am thinking a 5d MkIII. I need this to capture better shots for my Black and White photography site What are your thoughts? Thanks, Ben

Well I guess it's all about lenses u have and ur shooting style, I prefer full frame, awesome for Lanscaping and shooting in tight rooms, 7 d people use for fast action like sports, birds shooting also 7d is not water sealed,, if u have 3500$ go with 5d, it's much nicer! I sold my 1d mark III (cropped sensor) 10 fps I just realized I dont use that high burst rate and rather have full frame.

Thanks for the feedback. I will certainly take them onto thought. Full frame is certainly a greater advantage for me over speed. Ben
