Some standard newspaper images I have taken with the 1Ds Mark III when on various assignments using different lenses. Editing was minimal, with no noise reduction on the high ISO shots (noise doesn't matter in print).

The only thing I don't like about the 1Ds is the LCD screen, but it is something you can easily live with.

Just pushed the buy button on one of these bad boys and should have it by the end of the week. It came down to adding this and a Canon 85 f/1.8 to my gear until the end of the year or the 5D MII and 85L. In the end I really like to be able to use the outer focus points just way to much to go from a 5D to 5D MII with the same focusing system.

I think my 135L will really like this body. Can hardly wait.

Received my 1DS MIII from Adorama a couple of days ago and will hopefully get to do some shooting in tomorrow with it. Very, very, very excited.

:D

Thank you very much, and may I add that I'm a big fan of your work. If only now I could afford a 200 f/1.8 my life would be complete.:lol:

In honor of my first pic with the 1DS MIII, I present a local duck and goose.

About 2 weeks to get used to this new body before I start taking protraits and street photography again. Until then I will most likely shoot anything that walks in front of me. Two more from this afternoon.

^Love that image^

Before ultimately deciding on the 1DS MIII I considered the 5DMII and 5DMIII bodies. I went with this body because for what features I want and need the most, no other body was available at the price. For the price of under $2300 I have:

Image files at least as good as the original 5D which I happen to love btw.

Higher resolution from the 5D (12.8) to 1DS MIII (21.1).

Details in the shadows is simply outstanding.

A focusing system that I have complete confidence in when using any of the outer points.

Micro adjust, always handy when using a lens with a fast aperture of f/2 to f/1.2.

Live view with a 3" lcd.

Many other smaller details that helped me decide to move back into the 1D family.

It also never hurts in your decision making process when some of your favorite fellow photographers are using this body. Right after viewing the files on the computer from my first shoot I knew I made the right decision.

Congrats on the 1Ds 3!! I still love mine. It is still my favorite Canon FF camera to date. As you stated, it is still thee best performing sensor at base ISO. I wish could say that for any current Canon body. :)

Thanks and I expect to own this particular body for a very long time. It is leaps and bounds ahead of any body I've used to date. Even my friend who owns a 5d mii couldn't believe these bodies are in the $2500 range. She's was thinking about the 5d miii but now thinks the 1ds miii would do just as well.

Hi guys,

I thought I would ask here rather than starting a new thread, seeing as you lot have first hand experience.

I'm upgrading my gear at the moment, although at a slightly snail pace... recently purchasing a 60D, I'm now saving for a FF body, I love the 1D feel (I currently use a 1D2) so I'm swinging more towards this body over the 6D & 5DII.

When buying these body's second hand, are there any issues, problems or anything else to look out for? I've read about AF issues (might just be the 1D3?), but can't find enough info on it for an answer?

Any help would be great... off now to go back a few pages to gawp at photos ;)

Cheers all.

I believe the focus issues were in regard to the 1DMIII and by the time the 1DS MIII shipped the focus issues were resolved and do not affect this particular body.

I had a 1D classic, 1D MII, 7D/Gripped before moving to a pair of gripped 5D bodies until finally deciding to go with this beauty of a body. A couple things you will notice right away is the 1DS MIII seems slightly smaller and lighter than the prior 1D bodies. But it also feels better while handling when shooting. Also the viewfinder is bright and huge on this body. I liked the 7D viewfinder when I owned it but this one is on a whole other level. Words really cant describe what it feels like the first time you place your eye up to the cup and look out the viewfinder.

Even after the "New body love" wears off I think you'll find a new level of appreciation of all the tech that went into producing this body.

Thanks Thorrulz :) I did think it was just the Mk3, but wasn't sure if it was both 1D3 & 1D3S.

I used to have a 1DS Mk2, which my dad has now, loved that camera! I think I will go for a 1D3S but it won't be until about May/June time (money reasons!)

Cheers,

Radleigh.
