Should I pick up the Ronin-S if I have a Canon 5D Mark III?

I'm reading mixed things about the Mark III's compatibility with the Ronin S so that's my biggest hangup; some articles are saying that DJI released a firmware update about a year ago that allows the Mark III to be compatible but some forum posts dated after those articles are talking about how it didn't really work. I was hoping someone would have some first-hand experience or additional recommendations for me.
I'd really just like something to function as a gimbal (keep my shots steady) and focus easily, I don't care about much else. Thank you in advance and apologies if this is the wrong place to ask, this is my first post here.

Not sure 100% if focus/record work, but heard it will record, so you'll be able to balance it for smooth footage that's for sure. The Ronin S is a great gimbal as long as you dial in the right settings it is silky smooth.

With the cable (optional) MCC mini works, focus and start / stop video and in active photo mode the shot, as written in the manual, when you use the Ronin-S to pull focus, you
may need to switch the lens between AF and
MF to see which fits your need.

Thanks for the input! I went ahead and ordered it. Do I need to purchase a special cable to use it with my camera, like to get the focus wheel and stuff to work? Someone mentioned something about a MCC (?) cable or something
