Many commercial short movies were shot using its predecessor and this one continues the legacy. My only gripe is, this one is overpriced. A lot.

compare with 6d to suit your needs

Thhis camera is fantastic.. no doubt about that.. but you will be better off comparing your needs(still /motion shots) with those served by 6d which is another full frame camera from Canon with similar specs. major differences being focussing system,frame rate and 6d even gives us wifi(?) & GPS.but the 5dMK3 is worth every bit of the extra charge merely on its superior focussing.

Hope this helps.
