One of my last shots with the 1D Mark III. What a great camera it was.
This was a domestic quarrel, there was no fighting, just a lot of loud yapping going on. The kids were looking on from a short distance. :-)

So after moving up to the Mark IV what do you see as the major advantages other than megapixels?

Dave, I can't really say there are major advantages in the 1D4 over the 1D3, it's the whole package. The camera is just better in almost every respect. For me three things are very important when shooting birds: AF, ISO, sharpness. The AF (with a lot more focus points) on the 1D4 is better and more accurate with moving subjects. My 1D3 had excellent AF but the 1D4 is simply better at it. Higher ISO speeds give me cleaner files. Files are almost ridiculously sharp straight out of the camera and need very little sharpening in post, if at all, where the 1D3 needed more.

There are also relatively minor things like the rear lcd screen where I can now actually see if something is in focus, or the speed with which the images are downloaded into the computer (I use the USB cable, always have), it's all just that much better and everything together makes the 1D4 a much better camera than the 1D3. At least in my opinion.

I used to shoot birds with my 1DIIN and 1DIII and non-action shots with my 5D classic. I now find myself grabbing the 1D4 for non-action shots as well and that is saying something because I love full frame. But I love the 1D4 more. It is perfect for my needs. And it really is very nice to have more pixels on subject; especially when shooting birds the extra cropability does help even though I try to crop as little as I can.

Are you considering an upgrade?

Not at this time. I originally purchased the Mark lll as an upgrade to the 40D I was using. My son was involved in track and cross country and I had an opportunity to get a low shutter count Mark lll in mint condition. I do shoot some MMA tournaments with really crap lighting but even at 6400 iso the Mark lll files still clean up pretty good. I imagine the Mark lV is even better. I guess I was just curious how you felt about the image quality end result now that you have used both cameras.

I started with a 40D also. It was my second digital camera (first was a Powershot and the one that started this hobby) and the last one I bought new. I still have it and it still gets used when I need flash as 1D bodies don't have an built in flash and neither does the 5Dc. I loved that 40D which is why I never sold it when I upgraded to a 1DIIN.

It's funny but when I first got the 1D4 I honestly couldn't see the big advantage right away. I mean when I went from a 40D to a 1DIIN the difference was huge. Same thing when I upgraded to the 1D3 as it's simply in a different class than the 1DIIN. But now I thought the 1D4 was not much different from the 1D3. Until I began shooting with it for real and realised how all the little improvements really does make the 1D4 a worthwhile upgrade from the 1D3. Having said that, the 1D3 is also a terrific camera. I need to sell mine now but am terrible at that... :oops:

Thanks for all the honest feedback. I am also bad at letting cameras go. I still have my 40D and most likely won't ever sell it. Having that on board flash and the image quality it's hard to let go. Plus now I would be lucky to get anything north of $100. I will have to go check out the 1D4 thread and see some of your new posts.

I started out posting in the dedicated 1D4 thread but there's not much activity in that thread any more. I think most people there moved on to a 1DX/II now. People like me who buy yesteryear's gear only come on the scene when the gurus have long since moved on to the latest gear. :) So I have begun posting in the Post Your Birds In Flight and the Post Your Best Bird Portrait threads instead. Lots of activity going on there!
