Hey guys,

I have just purchased a 1d mark iii and have just had a sick feeling if my lens will fit the mount... Could someone clarify if my lenses in my signature will fit the mark iii

Thanks

They will fit, don't worry! It's only EFS lenses that won't.

Buyer's Remoose?

Ah, you'll love it and your wrists will be stronger to boot. Win win.

Make sure you dig into and understand all the settings - there's a lot of them!

Welcome to the club. It's a club of people all smiling.

Strong wrists are essential and that's a good point made by svarley lol

See you have a 7D (I had one that I sold when I got the 1D3) ... your "new" 1D3 will perform like the 7D, except the files are like cream ... easier to post process, even if you decide to do so extensively. Unless you need all the extra resolution you get with the 7D, I think the 1D3 will serve you better.

There's a nice user group to join too ... "-= 1D MkIII Owners discuss =- and Post Your Pics (Multi-page thread 1 2 3 4 5 ... Last Page)" ... with over 500 pages to look back over, and some great people participating ...

Couple of other things .... the shutter sound is superb, the response is near instantaneous, it fits in your hands perfectly.

What he said. I almost never use my 7D's any more. Night and day in picture quality.

When comparing them side by side in low light or other situations, they are not that different. The below taken from one of my mini-reviews...

Using DPP from raw, honoring whatever settings the camera sets up for NR.

IMAGE: http://teamspeed.smugmug.com/Electronics/1D3-vs-7D/i-jwRLNvC/0/L/7d1d3iso6400-L.jpg

ISO 3200 with zero NR in DPP, then 6400

IMAGE: http://teamspeed.smugmug.com/Electronics/1D3-vs-7D/i-WtpXQ3x/0/O/7d1d3iso_nonr_2.jpg

The one big advantage with the 1D3 over the 7D is how more forgiving it is with underexposure than the 7D. The 7D falls apart at 1 stop underexposure, the 1D3 can go to about 2.
IMAGE: http://teamspeed.smugmug.com/Electronics/1D3-vs-7D/i-SQNC97j/0/O/7d1d3exposure.jpg

Here is what happens with the resolution difference between the two, in addition to the differing crop factors. Bottom is the 1D3 cropped to the same material as the 7D on the top, using the same lens/focal length.

IMAGE: http://teamspeed.smugmug.com/Electronics/1D3-vs-7D/i-7LpWZfB/1/O/7d1d3resolution_2.jpg

Here is what happens when you resize the 1D3 up, if you needed the resolution for larger prints or publications.

IMAGE: http://teamspeed.smugmug.com/Electronics/1D3-vs-7D/i-9VS6fK6/1/O/7d1d3resolution_3.jpg

If you aren't reach-limited with your glass on a 1.3 crop body, and you don't need the resolution to crop or go really large, the 1D3 works great.

I find this to be true also and very useful in my applications.

I think you will quite quickly find the 7D is the "Backup"
I don't have either camera personally but I know 3 people who went the same route - none still have their 7Ds anymore.


Life is for living, cameras are to capture it (one day I will learn how!).

If you shoot birds don't get rid of the 7d.
I had the chance to use one last weekend and it did not do nearly as well
as my 7d. If you have to crop heavily for small birds that are skittish the 7d
does quite a bit better.
For all other things the 1d3 is better though.
