still love my 1DIII and cant see myself getting rid of it even though I have the 5DIII, perhaps if I had 1D4 I would. The only down side to this camera is only 10 megapixels to play with but I have started to uprez the photos from RAW files to 4300 on the longest side, I'm not sure that I can see any difference, does anyone else do this. This is a shot with 1DIII from last week

I love my 1DmkIII. There's more to a camera spec' than just a megapixel count. The IDmkIII may only have 10 million pixels, but they are of incredible quality.


Tools: I like things with real dials and knobs.

I agree with you; the only bodies I would replace my 1D3 with are the 1D4 or the 1DX. Since the latter will never be in my price range, and the former seems to keep holding it's $3000 plus used price (not surprised as it is so capable), I think my 1D3 has quite some time to go in my equipment cupboards ... lovely big pixels!!

another thumbs up here for the 1d3 unless canon come out with a gaming changing 7d2 i don't think i could go back to a old style aps-c sensor with all the relevant noise problems ,my only problem is having to crop to much sometimes a longer lens might help there though

heres one from yesterday caught in action as the bird dropped the peanut

Thanks - the 1D3 did help here - fast focusing, frame rate even at shallow DOF f1.8 in this case. I find that the Sigma seems to be driven better on the 1D body, maybe the higher battery voltage available.

Every time i use the 1D3 I smile :D ... and the images are really easy to work with afterwards.

I would like a 1DsIII but waiting to see how they fall once the new releases come out.... or a 1DX but well out of my range for now.

One of the key features i really like on these 1D bodies is the spot metering with the focus point...

Yep, the flexibility to dial in the AF and metering behavior is wonderful. I shot another swim team on Saturday (action shots), and being able to set it on AV and just knowing what to expect was wonderful. I had overcast conditions with really variable light, but the images are all exposed similarly enough that Lightroom processing is a breeze.

This is a very useful feature I use all the time along with spot meter averaging.

Im waiting to see the files on 7DII, sounds a great camera, even if I end up getting it I will probably hang on to 1DIII

My hope is that 7DII will push down 1D4 prices, and I'll snag one of those... the only thing I'm missing on my 1D3 is pixels, but not missing them badly enough to pay current 1D4 prices.

Had my 1D3 out in the Paradise Valley north of Yellowstone NP. These are the only two images of moving subjects out of 50+ even close to being in focus. Stationary subjects no problem. With the Sigma 100-300 and 1.4x TC. This lens combo works flawlessly on my 1D2N. 1D3 sent off to Canon.
