$4000 would be OK; $4500 is getting a bit uncomfortable.
Price increase would make a lot of people really mad - bad for Canon.

Sorry if this has been covered but, does this new wonder camera have ISO priority or ISO shift?




Too much Gear to list! :lol:

1200 for a MKII? I'll take two!

No, he said the price dropped about $1200, not dropped to $1200. :)

ISO shift.

On second thought, it's got both (sort of). :)

Weight.

I really like that the Mark III is a half pound lighter but the same size. Big size is good. Less weight is good.

This thing's high ISO performance alone really has me wanting one.

I think this camera is more geared towards the sports photographers, its 10mp's and has the 1.3 crop factor still.

i could never go back to have a crop factor, i dont think this is what we have been waiting for, we are waiting for the 1ds MK III if thats what its going to be called,

I think ISO 6400 is a awesome bonus for indoor without flash... I look forward to see more samples with high ISO performance. 10MP? Hum... not the most attractive point to me.

I just saw this post on another forum and thought that I would post it here.
This is the new Wedding/Sports camera from Canon.
[URL="[URL]http://www.​robgalbraith.com/bins/​content_page.asp?cid=7​-8736-8850"][URL="http://[URL]www.​robgalbraith.com/bins/​content_page.asp?cid=7​-8736-8850"][URL]http://www.​robgalbraith.com/bins/​content_page.asp?cid=7​-8736-8850

Looks like a very strong sports contender.... but for wedding work, sure it would do just fine. But why spend $4K at this time when the 5D does a fantastic job for less than 2/3 the price. It looks like a fine machine and the sports guys should love it, but I'll stick with the 5D for the time being.

I don't think there is any doubt this is a sports camera. If you're a studio shooter, you stick with the 1dsMkII till whenever they release the new MkIII.

For the first time since moving back to Australia I miss the States! They want $AU 6,500 for the new 1dMkIII over here. If it lists at $US3,999 that should be about $AU5,100 here. Can you say "thieves"?

Looks like I'll be speaking to some of my American friends come April!

Fly it in, you get dinged for taxes but at 10% plus brokerage and shipping you will still come out ahead especially for such a big ticket item.

I'm appalled at what some of the local shops are quoting me on some of the items.. there was a US$500 difference on a US$1K lens on one quote I got.. my eyes nearly popped out of my head.

Yeah, people seem to forget that. Heck, the 1D came out at around 4k as well.

Here is a real sample shoot from the 1D MkIII at ISO3200 taken from DPRW:

http://www.cheapfileho​st.com …4f448d3001/1D_1​6-35_1.jpg (external link)

Good ISO 3200, too bad the photo sucks. :) I don't see a noticeable improvement though over the 1dmkII, ISO 3200 has always been very good. It just comes down to nailing the exposure with high ISO.
