I bought a 5D (since then sold) from a local studio a few months ago and chat with the owner every once in a while. While shooting the breeze today, he said he would sell me his very clean boxed 1D Mk3 for $2200. He says he bought it for sports but did not really get into it.

Didn't get a chance to ask shutter count but we're gonna (try to) hook up this weekend so I'll get a chance to see it ... is $2200 a good price for a very clean 1D3 body ? If not, what would be a good price? I might have to let go of the 7D if I do this :(

Would you trade up your 7D+cash for a 1D3?

Alpha, I've been researching this for awhile and I feel as if many would choose the 1D3>7D.
As for pricing, have seen it go from $1800-2500usd, depending on other factors.
Personally, I would go for the chance to own a weather resistant camera and (better?) AF over the 7D.
Good luck!

I need to read up (and quickly) on what "weather resistant" really means :) Are we talking about steady rain (monsoon?), snow? You'd still need to follow humidification and de-humidification steps, wouldn't you? Sorry if it sounds igmo, but I've never had the funds for a 1D series so I don't know :)

Could someone please point me to a thread regarding the focusing systems and general 7D vs 1D III???

Having owned both, I will say the MKIII is a far better handling camera. I like the AF better on it as well. It just seems more intuitive than the 7D.

If I had to choose, I would take the MKIII over the 7D hands down.

I'm not sure if I agree that the 1D3 wins every time. I have owned both for over a year. While I'll usually grab the 1D3 first for portraits or low lights stuff, for wildlife and sports, I'll take the 7D. Personally, I think the 7D's autofocus is better then the 1D3, especially in servo mode. For birds in flight, I'll take the 7D every time.

I believe he meant to say AF with extender (2x).


I know more about gear than I know about photography :p

I'm not sure I have this right, but as I understand it, you could take a MKIII with a 400 5.6 and add a 1.4 TC and it would still autofocus at F8

If you took that same combination and put it on a 7D, you would loose autofocus if you tried to go above 5.6
