Firstly I am not really interested in the video Capability of the 5D mk III

My question might seem like I haven't researched the technical specs but as an artist,
but all specs seem latin to me and I use them only if needed.
For example I don't go worrying about Noise. I love noise...

But seeing that the pricing on both cameras are very similar

What would you recommend... obviously with your previous experience with both bodies..

Does the extra resolution actually make a big difference if I was to make enlargements

The 5D mk III 's 22 MP Vs. the 1D mk IV 's 16 MP

What is making you single out these bodies if the specifications are 'latin' to you?
What are you planning to shoot with either of them?

My thread Jayrou . I'm the one asking questions :)

My Questions are irrespective of what I'm shooting. That shouldn't matter unless money is the constraining factor..

Besides, not choosing to focus on the specs alone shouldn't suggest I'm am ignorant to technological advancements.

Don't expect much response after your response to *Jayrou's simple inquiry. He was trying to help which I assume you were wanting. I don't use either so I will bow out.

Your primary subject(s) can have a great deal to do with body choice.

Do you need the speed of the MkIV (and can you work with the 1.3X crop) or do you want the "native" benefits of full frame at a slightly lower max frames per second?

If you're outdoors a lot, do you need the more robust weather sealing of the 1-series or are you indoors more where you won't get wet?

Ok with the integral grip design of the MkIV (weight and bulk) or would you rather have the option to go without a grip for just "walking around?"

Do you have large glass to offset the full frame 5D3 or would you benefit from APS-H?

You need to give people a little more to chew on regarding your photography please. Off the cuff suggestions are useless without at least a little background info.

I think my questions were quite valid, you gave nothing away with your original post.

Wasn't the exact same question asked and answered just a few days ago. Maybe OP should do a search.

Neither camera. Love noise? your answer is, Rebel 300D. ;)

I specifically asked about opinion on the two bodies irrespective of what I was shooting

and how resolution affected enlargements


Comeon People : Sensitive are we? Do you really think I was being rude?
when someone asks you the time in the street..
I don't think you tell them how many hands your watch has got or if its mechanical or digital

Or do you actually feel offended because they insist on having the time instead.


@Jeffery Thanks for your recomendation but I am already using a 5D mk II and I use the 85 L and 50 L and 35 L. It would be a shame to move to Nikon.

Were you being rude? I would say a little, but no matter.

To the actual question, no one can give you an answer as what you shoot would greatly influence which body you would choose.

This is you asking what the time is, and we are asking what time zone you live in.
We can't give you an answer until you give us that little bit more information.

Does the extra resolution actually make a big difference if I was to make enlargements

The 5D mk III 's 22 MP Vs. the 1D mk IV 's 16 MP

About 17% wider and 17% higher, or 17%.

(Calculation: √22 = 4.69; √16 = 4; and 4.69 is 17% larger than 4.)

That said, once you get smaller than some paper size, most people can't see extra resolution. Whatever you feel comfortable with on your current camera, you can scale.

First of all. you can never tell what's on a person mind when they write on here.
Its how we perceive it and usually depends on an individual state of mind
I can't really answer as to what I want to shoot
I shoot just about every genre .. from fast moving to ultra wide, day or night.

Now if I was enquiring about a Lens ... Yes it would have been justified asking what I want to shoot.
I stated i was looking for a comparison between the two bodies specifically
I also mentioned not caring about noise. I am sorry that someone had to take it personally and recommend a REBEL series [Now was that rude.. I'll overlook that]
or someone recommending an entry Level NIKON given that he is a Canon shooter..I'd still like to think he has my best interest at heart to make that recommendation.

Besides you wouldn't be asking me the time zone in the same street ;)

Thanks for your understanding.
