Does Mk III have the same batteries as Mk II ?

I have twp Mk II bodies in my bag (the other one is a backup). If I buy a Mk III, I will have one Mk II as a backup. But I would not like to start charging and carrying around two types of batteries...


Yep, they both use the LP-E6 battery.  They may have upgraded the quality of the battery, but the physical size and set up of the battery are the same.


Thanks... that's nice.

They have preorders at one store in Australia for the Mk3 in Australia at $AUD4199 , the Mk2 is $AUD2399. That's a significant difference.   
What did the 5dMKII list for orginally in USD ?

So basically about $900 more than the price in the US. Same as everything else in Australia - you have to pay significantly more.

Come to Croatia to see how prices can be high for professional equipment... Smaller market greater prices...
Once one american contributor told me that probably 100$ mean a lot for us...
I had to put "grocery prices" in one post to proof him that 100$ in USA worth much more than in this part of Europe....

And the retailers wonder why more and more people are buying online.

The price difference is almost an airfare to Hawaii

Unfortunately the GST limit for shipping camera gear is A$1000 otherwise you end up having to mess around with customs duty and pay that, but for anything below that ordering online does the trick.   

The big retail duopoly is trying to bring down the GST limit to stop people importing their own products and push up prices even further. Sorry for going off topic, but I'm reminded every time about the reason why prices in Australia are so high:

^^^ Ouch! That's a pretty serious retail duopoly you have in Australia. Thought it was bad enough in the UK where Tesco controls 8% of all consumer spending.

Surely though, in the greater scheme of things, imported goods must have got much cheaper as the AUD has strengthened against the USD over the last couple of years? I know that doesn't help if your earnings are in USD but most Australians should have benefited.

And you find that surprising? Out of the 7,000,000,000+ people on this planet, how many of them do you think can?

More surprising is how many of them can't spot USA on a map.  ;D

I hear that a lot too.
I made some maths, if I want to but a top camera with two good lenses, it's worth travelling to NYC to buy at B&H and then return home. Much cheaper than buying the same equipment here - plus I can enjoy NYC even if just one day.
Moreover, Rio is one of the most expensive cities in the world.
