I'm not a Canon shooter, but the 5DIII is a pro-level camera and should easily handle ISO 200-400, without any issues with noise, perhaps unless the pictures were underexposed and processed heavily. Even as far back as 12 years ago, 200 ISO is where most photographers were on nice, sunny days. About the only time I shoot 100 ISO is for long-duration exposures. To me, 200 is the standard setting, but I don't really get concerned about image quality until I'm forced to go above 1600. Even then, I have images on RP that were shot at 10,000 ISO. Sometimes, ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

I'll take a little noise over a little blur any day. There are things you can do to fix noise.

My RP stuff is here.
