I would go also for 1DmkIII. IQ is great, also ergonomy is improved and AF system is very robust.
1dsmkII ergonomy was probably biggest issue, changing ISO or viewing pictures was a pain and slow, but 1DmkIII has already known button layout and everything is fast and smooth.

Lots of 1d3 owners had focus issues. When canon accepted there was an issue and "fixed" them, lots of owners thought the problem wasn't really fixed (to 1d2 standards at least). 1d2 is a great piece of kit at a low price. Focus system is outstanding

ISO 800, 24-105L

my vote would be the 1d mk3, i use it along with 7d with any good L-glass,there's lots of life left in this camera its not the best ISO,but one can get a 1d mk3 for well under $1000.these days.

I use a 1D2 and 7D. I use the 7D less during the summer when the action has been outside.

For indoor sports I shoot, some of those "gyms" (should be called dungeons actually) require use of ISO 6400 to freeze action.

Don't forget to look at this thread:

1D2 has basically an Aps-h size 5d sensor. Really nice at IQ when in good lighting. Much nicer than the 7d or any apc-c unless you need 6400 which it wont do. 1D3 is great too of $ is available with some niceties.

I too would recommend a 1D3.
I use mine side by side with the 5D3, and the files are equally good up to 3200 ISO except for the resolution gap between the two. For action, the 1D3 is my choice. I use the 5D3 for landscape, etc.

Maxdave

Me too. I do have a 5d2 that I use when I need higher iso instead of the 1d3.

I have a 1D MK IIn and love everything about it except ISO above 800 is very sketchy..!
I would like to match it with a 1Ds MK II but feel the ISO performance will not be much better.
The ergonomics of the 1D body will keep me coming back so my next body will probably be a MK III.
But ..What will be the price of the 7D II..hmmm..!!

I have both the 5D3 and 1D3, and when that 7D2 coming out, I'm tempted to buy it because I very like the new AF system in the 5D3. The 1D3 is excellent in its own way, but that 7D2 may replace it. But I would think the price will be close to $2k if not more. In any case, right now maybe a bad time to buy a camera. Just right before Photokina, even if you aren't interested in new camera, if you wait until after the event, I would think the price of used gear would drop even more.

Hoping you're right; I'd like to pickup a 1D4 to replace (or maybe even complement) my 1D3 ... waiting for them to drop under $3000 up here in Canada.

If the 7D2 handles higher ISO much like the 5D2 at least, and has great 65pt AF with 10fps (and should with dual processors), that could actually impact the 1D4 used market. It has been very, very stable over the past few years, little has really impacted it due to being the last APS-H model.

The 1DII is the one camera that I never use any more but I could not part with.

It's AF is still among the best, it's IQ is excellent. Don;t know what else to say other than if cost prohibits a 1DIII and your interested in a 1D, than just get one.
