It’s pretty hard to keep any new product under wraps these days, even the mighty Apple have been struggling to control leaks but Canon did remarkably well are keep hush before the EOS 5D Mark III came out.

You might be forgiven for being somewhat disappointed if you’re a 5D Mark II owner because on the face of it certainly if you’re in the habit of megapixel counting (in which case you seriously need to get out the house) there’s not a “huge” improvement. What you should really be looking at is how the resolution is handled and captured but more importantly how the camera performs.
