Seller send me some photos of the camera, and its not affected based on serial number. Would this camera be good backup for my 6D? I know its not gonna beat it on hing ISO but based on tests Ive readed and sample images Ive seen I think 3200 is good to go wich is fine for me. After all I can always use my 6D when I run out of juice.
Maxdave, you have 5DIII wich is very similar to my 6D when it comes to noise. If I think 12 800 is the limit I want to use on 6D. What ISO would match that amount of noise on 1DIII?
I would say 3200 for sure ... the 5D3 is really amazing in that regard; one stop better than the 1D3, at least.
I shoot my 1D3 at ISO 3200 without worrying at all about noise (of course, I'd rather shoot it at 1600). I don't use it often higher than that; with the 5D3, I'd say 6400 is my standard highest ISO with higher ISOs only if really necessary.
My main problem with the 1D3 is the LCD screen. You know how you can be fooled by the screen that your image is sharp when it's not on many dSLRs? Well, on a 1D3 the reverse is true; the images turn out sharper on the computer than on the back screen. Takes some getting used to, and some trust, because it difficult to tell an image is sharp in the field without magnifying it, which takes extra time on any body.
A couple of other things; you don't want to have to crop heavily, so you need the long lenses if you want to reach out; and there's a lot of features, especially pertaining to focus and exposure to learn, so its not just figured out in a day!
The 1D3 is the most responsive camera I have ever used, which is to be expected as it is the only series 1 I have owned. The 5D3 is the best all around camera I have used, all things considered. But the 1D3 is no slouch, I'll tell you ...
Unless the replacement was a 1D4 or a 1D X, I wouldn't let it go ...
