First time poster here. I just picked up a lightly used 1D3 and am really enjoying the pro build, AF, blazing speed and clean files. All the shortcomings in this body (low res sensor & screen, no video, limited liveview) seem to be addressed in the 1D4 but the 1D3 was the better value for me at roughly 1/3 the cost!
I plan to capture more action shots of my toddler and dip my toes into surf photography. This seems like a shockingly friendly forum with actual constructive criticism most of the time. I look forward to posting often.
A few shots from my first days with the new body. All with the Canon 70-200 f/2.8 non-IS. Click for higher res as the compressed versions lose some detail and "sparkle".
