Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital Camera Review$3,499.00
The Canon 5D Mark II has been, somewhat erroneously, described as a camera that lacks the durable features of the 1D series. While the Mark II did, in fact, offer some weather sealing and durable elements, the Mark III takes this to an entirely new level. The camera's obviously not waterproof, but Canon has adopted several features that make the Mark III less prone to the elements. The camera utilizes improved rubber sealing around the buttons and several sections, while the actual plates of the camera are also assembled to fend off dust and moisture. Canon stresses the 5D Mark III isn't as durable as the 1D X, which is evident by its shutter duration rating: 150,000 cycles as opposed to the 400,000 that the 1D X is designed for.
