Sydney Harbour Bridge from Kirribilli. I picked up my 5D Mark III today and thought I'd head out and take some test shots after work. It was raining so not the best conditions, and unfortunately I had my camera set to JPG mode but I managed to get some shots I was happy with. All in all it's an amazing update to what was an already amazing camera (5D2). Probably my favourite feature tonight was the built in level sensor. It would have been difficult to get this shot level without it as the horizon was obscured as a point of reference. Was interesting learning all of the new button locations, the basics like on/off and live view have moved.
