Canon's EOS 5D Mark III digital SLR. Copyright © 2012, Imaging Resource. All rights reserved. Click for our Canon 5D Mark III hands-on preview!We just got our hands on a beta-level Canon 5D Mark III this afternoon, and have posted our "Still Life" ISO series from this hot new digital SLR, straight from the lab! Since the camera is not production-level, we won't be taking our full suite of lab test shots with it, but we thought our readers would be interested in getting an early peek at the 5D Mark III's image quality.

See our Hands-on Preview to learn more about the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, and visit the Samples page for the beta images we've shot using default noise reduction, including links to RAW files. Keep in mind image quality may not be representative of final production models. Enjoy!

UPDATE: We've also added a few Gallery shots. Senior editor Shawn Barnett made a few images in his studio to give you a better idea of what the 5D Mark III can do with a human subject. Click here for more!
