Anyone who have used both 50D and 1D mkIII, I will greatly appreciate any first hand opinions regarding noise levels and sharpness of the RAW files. I know 1D mkIII will show less noise, but how much better is the sensor? I am planing upgrade and I do not need more fps, I can live with the focus system of the 50d, but I would like less noise and sharper images at ISO>=1600 and 1.3 crop factor will be nice too! So I wonder if 1D mkIII is the right choice!

1D3 is significantly better than the 50D all-round including ISO performance. Low ISO in the studio you won't notice too much difference but overall the 1D3 produces a nicer file with smooth transitions and skin tones... less "crunchy" than the 50D's files. Then there's the significantly better build, ergonomics, durability and AF system. Against it is probably on the rear LCD isn't as good... and its a bigger, heavier camera (if that bothers you).

I have a 1D3 and have just bought a 50D as second body. I wanted a cheaper lighter camera for holidays and parties.

Rai33 above pretty much sums it up.

just switched from the 50d to the 1dIII... if you're expecting perfect high ISO files with no noise, you're going to be disappointed. it is definitely better, but the 15mp of the 50d hide noise better than the 10mp of the 1d if you start cropping. I didn't buy the 1d for a camera with less noise. I bought it for the 1d body, bigger sensor, and AF capabilities. I couldn't be happier... still learning how to hit the exposure sweet spot though. I had it down on my 50d, but the 1d is different.

That's a really good price!

I pulled the trigger on it today! Since its past the billing cycle I don't have to pay for it until April. Which will give me time to add a little cushion to my bank and it will be 10 days before my birthday.

Rally stoked on this!! What CF card does everybody use in this camera?

Congrats and Happy Birthday to you! start googling the c.f.'s, there a bunch of them. I love the camera, it just takes s little getting used to.

I use Sandisk 8g and 16g Extreme 60mb/s cards and never had a problem.

I have a kingston 32g card in mine... it's overkill, but I never ever have to swap cards.

I'm thinking about getting an eye-fi card for the sd slot... looks like fun.

So 60 mb/s is fast enough? I was trying to decide between 60 and 90, I ended up with the 8 gb you listed above.

And I remember reading somewhere that for the SD slot 4gb is the max. I can not find the source for the life of me, is that accurate?

My 1D MKIII is definitely married with my 85L :mrgreen: no mind to put another lens for shooting :confused: , I just can get "Portraits" but live without additional lights or background.

I have an 8Gb Eye-fi pro X2 in my SD slot which works fine. Handy when you want to shoot and see the shot on the iPad screen rather than peaking at the camera screen. works really well.

As for CF's, I run 2 x Sandisk 8gb's. both 60mb/s

60 is fast enough for me, but I've not shot 90 frames in a row. 10 or so no problem in full RAW- which is what I have my max set at. I have more than one card, but they are all 60 mb/s sandisk.

I also run a SD card and it is a Sandisk SDHD 8g 45mb/s.

Marc.....those are sharp!
