I see more and more 1Ds Mark III on sale and was wondering what owners of this body are upgrading to when the put this great camera up for sale? I've been thinking of buying one of these even thouhh I own a 5D III since I love the feel of my 1D IV.
I've been seeing these from ~$2700 to $3000 and lightly used 5D III's for about $2900 to $3100.

Most likely the 1Dx or 5D III. That'll be my guess.

I went with the 1DX. While I considered the 5D3, it wasn't going to be worth it when Canon had combined their 1Ds and 1D models. The 1Ds3 market crashed pretty hard and I feel the camera is worth more to me than what I would get as trade in or selling, so I chose to keep it.

Shooting with both bodies gives me nice options, and while the 1Ds3 is kept mainly for studio work, it works well out in the field for most things in semi-decent light.

Being able to use the better batteries and chargers was a nice plus. The 1D bodies just have too much going for them in that department, longer lasting and higher amps giving more drive to the lenses in focusing is worthwhile to me for what I shoot.
