FlyingPhotog, I think you were the originator on why I had ultimately chosen the 1d3. Minus the fact that I have 30k less in lens' than you, I make sense with what I have for the time being. the 1d3 imo even competes with the 5d2 and surpasses it(personal opinion). It is definately a excellent replacement for my older 50D and cannot wait to delve into it even more. Even considering replacing my 5d2 with a 1Ds3!

Here are a few results from the first time out!

For the price this camera is INCREDIBLE. AF Spot on, AF SUPER FAST, Depth SOOC is incredible. No wonder why they are so sought after.

This thread was a huge help in my decision to go 1D MkIII instead of 7D. Minus video, it's like everything the 7D has, then add in about 80% - 100% of 5D image quality, 25% higher FPS, and a 1D chassis. No-brainer for what they're selling for these days.

I still have a lot of learning to do, but this body is awesome.

For reasons on low lighting and the need for some sport photographs, I bought the 1d3. Performs well under low light without banding and for sports etc it performs like a champ. 10mp is just fine, I haven't had a client go about 24x36. Not sure if I've heard any of my photographer's I went to school with have an order above that either.

I have been thinking of selling my 5D2 and picking up some fast glass for my 1D3. How good are the outer focusing points on 1D3 with say 24L, 35L, 50L, etc.? I am expecting them to be really good, just looking for confirmation. :)

Thanks,
Michelle

I'm actually considering "upgrading" my 7D to a 1D3. 10MP is plenty for 99.99% of what I do and video is nice but a dedicated video camera would probably do better anyways. You really can't argue with the 1D3 as far as bang for the buck.

I just keep coming back to this thread.

This thread was the reason as to why I upgraded my rebel xs to a 1d mk IIII. I am so glad I did too!

Who is using a 35L on this body? I just can get this lens out of my head and I am thinking of all these ways that it would serve me and how I could justify buying it.
