Hi

I have a chance to buy either a 1D3 or a 7D. Anyone with experience with both?

Thanks

They are pretty close to each other AF and noise-wise (1D3 about 1/2 stop better perhaps). Bottom line, if you don't need to crop alot and 10mpx images will satisfy your needs for printing and otherwise, get the 1D3. If you need movie mode and more resolution and a bit more "cropped reach", and want a bit of money left over for glass, get the 7D.

Both handle action very well, both are built very well, both have great AF, and both have pretty nice fps numbers.

I could see maybe a 1DsIII.

The key is what/where/when do you want to shoot. Do you need FF images or will crop images work just as well?

I am not sure where FF was raised in the question? Not saying it isn't an option, but the cameras mentioned were both crop.
