Best Buy screen reveals 5D Mark III due March 25

The flagship Canon EOS 5D Mark III will be shipping at Best Buy stores and likely other retailers on March 25, Engadget learned. The date is indicated in a photo of the inventory screen at Best Buy sent in to the source and lines up with earlier reports that the camera will be out before month's end. At the same time, the 404-page owner's manual (PDF) is also available online, and ahead of the release.

The camera has an upgraded 22.3-megapixel, full-frame sensor with a much improved 61-point autofocus system. A six frame per second speed at full resolution is also new. The ISO range extends all the way up to 102,400. It can record 1080p video at up to ISO 12,800 and in H.264 format. A 3.2-inch LCD sits out back in the dustproof and water-resistant housing. The body will cost $3,500, with lens bundles adding to that price tag.
