Easy-to-use 45-point autofocus system, big, clear finder, completely compatible with every Canon EOS lens, including USM and IS. 

The Canon EOS 3, shown here with its huge PB-E2 Power Booster and vertical grip, is an extraordinary SLR. This grip is optional; with a standard GR-E2 grip the EOS 3 is a much more reasonably sized camera.

The EOS 3 has an extraordinary autofocus system, which includes 45 AF sensors to use for each shot. The EOS 3’s AF system is so much faster and easier to use and to set than anything available today.
