Thinking about a bigger , ergonomic, and slightly newer body.

How's ISO sensitivity on the 1D3?

Anyone own both?

I still want to do portraits but the 5Ds crappy LCD and no liveview needs to go.

Also looking for something that will last longer and is more durable overall.

The 1d3 is better at higher ISOs, very similar to how the 18mpx APS-Cs at ISO 3200+

It is very close to the qualities of the 5D, and has just enough crop to give that closer FOV. I think the 1.3 crop is the best compromise between FF and APS-C, and am sad to see it go. You get micro adjustment and live view as well, plus ability to store all your settings into up to 10 files. Dual card slots are nice as well.

I can get a 1D3 for $700-900

6D is a few hundred more.

Also, I think the battery on the 1D3 lasts longer?

Also, 10 fps for those bird shots, as I am a bird enthusiast

If you're a gear-head, you will criticize me of course.

It's not about being a gear-head. 100mm on FF is just a wee bit short for birding.

You're goning to want/need 400mm on FF, 300mm on crop... minimum, for birds (unless you're Dr. Dolittle).

Tick

How's ISO sensitivity on the 1D3?

not huge in comparison to later offerings

Anyone own both?

not me, my opinions are based on research only, consider them for what they are

I still want to do portraits but the 5Ds crappy LCD and no liveview needs to go.

Understandable, particularly with the MF lens. Is tethering an option for you?

Also looking for something that will last longer and is more durable overall.

My concern here with a 1D3, most would have been well used


In saying that, for the budget you have indicated, I'm not sure of a better option in FF.
Alternate options might be, 7D or 70D if crop is a consideration.
