That plastic part which you easily remove to allow the 10-22mm lens to mount onto a 1D body can just as easily be put back in, to allow it to then again be attached to a APS-C size sensor body.

Here is a video of how EASY it is to do the conversion. (Just reverse the process to convert it back to it's original form).

Yup boss rocks up to the office last nigh and asked me if I was keen for it, used it for about 20 mins around the office and said I'll take it, BARGAIN!! got it for 500AUD!!! (aprox 580USD) sure the body has wear but it's still a MkIII with no focal drama, tested it on the Lens Calc and it was spot on with the 16-35 and again with the 200 f2.8, Verry happy man!! The Colour shreds over the mkIIN Colour and high ISO is slot better!!

nice. soon enough I'll be looking to upgrade my mk2n to either the 1d mark III or the 5d2.
I myself always got frustrated having to change ISO with 2 hands(and also having to take your eye off the VF)

How does one go about changing ISO on the mkIII/IV ?

The MKIV was simple and brilliant but being a work cam I couldn't change settings (set button to control ISO and P.Fn ect)
The MKIII is brilliant, got iso on the Set button so it's quick easy and no eyes needed to be taken from the VF
The MKIV LCD seems a lot better but the MKIII LCD is a massive jump from the crap they put on the MKIIN.
And the 20% pixel gain (2mp) makes a world of difference, HIGH ISO on the MKIII makes the MKIIN look like a old 20D feels a lot better!!

Been 2 weeks now since I got a used 1D Mark III (40k actuations ~$2000). :D

I have a Canon 5D Mark II (and have owned a 5Dc and many crop bodies in the past). Initially I was very skeptical about the 1D MK III's IQ. I went through a long debate on whether to pick up a used 1D MK III or a new 7D and finally made up my mind after seeing images on this forum and renting out a 7D. Don't get me wrong, the 7D seems to be a very capable camera. But the soft RAWs kind of put me off.

What I love about the 1D MK III:

  • AF. Coming from the 5D Mark II, the difference is night and day. My priorities are now shifting towards bird photography, although landscape, people and macro is what I love.
  • The variety of Custom Functions. I've gone over the manual a couple of times already. :p
  • The ergonomics. It's a 1D and rightly so!
  • High-speed drive (10 fps) and the bragging rights it gives you.
  • Clean shots even at ISO 1000. Haven't tried going beyond that.
  • Dual card slots for piece of mind.
  • Weather sealing. Already used it in light rain. :D
What I don't like:
  • 10 mp. The 5D MK II's 21 mp gives you more possibilities.
  • Rear LCD. Can't believe that a big corporation like Canon can release a top-of the line product with such lousy specs.
  • Paint wear-off on my 1D body. Looks ugly. :cry: Again, I'd expect Canon to release a product that is more resistant to abuse.
  • Cost. I think the 7D would retain better value in the long run.

Below are few photos taken with the 1D MK III. The first one was shot with the 100mmL IS macro and the rest with a 70-200 f/2.8L IS. All shots from in and around Bangalore.
