I started with a 40D, and then went to a 1DIII. The noise performance and the look of the files on the 1DIII is a big step up from the 40D. You're used to a similar MP resolution camera, so if that's not a big issue with your 40D files, you won't have an issue with the 1D3. It doesn't have quite as much "reach" as the 7D/40D due to the 1.6x APS-C crop vs 1.3x APS-H sensor, but it's not tremendously different.

Other than the weight, it's wonderful. Handles extremely well, and the batteries last forever! The dual battery charger with conditioner function is nice too. It saves time swapping batteries on chargers and should extend the life of older batteries somewhat.

I loved my 1D3, and missed it after I sold it to go FF. So now I've got a 7DII, which has a similar level of AF and fps performance.

For the money, the 1D3 is really hard to beat for sports. It's also better weather sealed than a 7D, which may be useful since you're going to be shooting surf (possibly why your 40D shutter button is acting up).

I shoot mostly sports. I had a 7D and 1D-3 at the same time. Went back and forth between them. I liked the reach of the 7D but the battery grip wasn't as tight and AF was no better than the 1D-3. On the computer, the 1D-3 produced better looking images. Slightly richer colors, slightly shallower DOF for increased background blur. The 1D felt better in the hand, operated better in the hand, operated better in the field (no accidental mode changes!) and produced better images.

I sold the 7D and kept the 1D-3.

I have never experienced "accidental mode changes" when using any xxD or xD camera. However, I consistently experienced "accidental mode changes" when I shot with a 350D. My shooting hand thumb would often trip the button setting my camera to self-timer mode. I would press the shutter and hear the self-timer cooking off.

Then I would say "darn" or some equivalent term "I did it again".

I just love my 7D cameras (I have two). I recently bought a used 5DII to experience shooting with full frame and the jury is still out in deciding if I want to keep that camera.

I use top-line lenses for all of my shooting and did most comparisons between the 7D and 5DII using a 70-200mm f/4L IS lens...

BTW: becoming adept at post processing can really level the playing field between cameras.

By the way...

Seeing as I was looking to go FF 5DIII, I've done a bit of research and (while some might disagree), it's looking like the 7DII is the go for me.

7DII bundled with a 15-85, and a Sigma 30 f1.4 (as a the stand in for a 50mm on FF) and battery grip comes in at well under a 5DIII and 24-105L

Most reviews give the 5DIII at barely above the 7DII (other than being FF that is)...
