Nice road test Michael. Kicked the tires and all.  

Like the photo of the 3 boats on the calm sea. My favorite.

Thank you Michael for you review, I can't wait to see your comparisons. Your dance image is amazing! I currently use the 1dsMK2 a great deal with a Zork Shift adapter with Pentax lenses for studio work. I will be waiting patiently for my MK3 to arrive and test it with this set up. 180mb files should be more than detailed. What was your feeling on the 14bit vs. 12bit of the MK2?
Thanks

Great report.  I love reading reports in this style ... I enjoy pixel peeping to a point, but I truly appreciate opinions based on real world perspective, and the tie in to such a fascinating location ... a place I will never have an opportunity to visit ... was tremendous.

forgot to add, great images as well, including the LR techniques.

Fantastic work Michael. Definantly a good review for me, and certainly makes me more comfortable about my decision to purchase one in April next year.

Wasn't Lettuce Head a Kid's in the Hall character?

Edit:  Sorry, the character I was thinking of was Cabbage Head.

Great, great review Michael,

I believe that speaking by all, connects perfectly with our own introspection, in the camera evaluation. I have felt i myself in Madagascar.

Thanks, for the good short and good luck in the Madagascar Photo Exhibition.

Just brilliant Michael,
All photos look great, a unique place to visit indeed.
I read it last night and I too fill very confident about my purchase. I can't wait till cameras are actually available, hopefully next month...

Yeah, brilliant, fantastic, way to go Michael.... except....
At the risk of not sounding absolutely sycophantic, I was mildly disappointed with the review.

- no comment on the new improved viewfinder
- too bad he didn't try seeing how the manual focus works with liveview
- little detail on how the 14 bit A/D conversion actually adds to greater tonal range in images and what this is like to work with in Lightroom
- nothing much on how the new metering systems performed in the field (with the exception that they can be said to be "reliable")
- nothing really on how the various lenses in Michael's kit worked in the field with this new camera and whether some of them were challenged in resolving what the sensor could record
- and most disappointingly, nothing yet on how actual real world prints turned out, as compared to prints from the Mark II, 5D, MF backs, etc.

Yes, I know Michael said is working on those aspects but couldn't we have at least some more qualitative and descriptive comments based on your extensive experience with those other cameras? I'm not suggesting he should have done a technical review- he was clear that the intent was a hands-on field report. But a little more feedback on the stuff you had your hands on would have been nice.
You know we can't wait....
