Would you swap your 1D3 and 5D2 for a 1Ds3?

I've been made an offer to swap my 1D3 and 5D2 + a £700 lens (I'm selling anyway) for a 15 month old 1Ds3. I'm very tempted so thought I'd ask if anyone else thinks that this is a fair swap.

I really miss the AF points on the 5D but a lot of my shooting is in the iso800 area, and wonder if the 5D2 has due to later electronics, better noise?

Sorry for the ramble, just wondering what people here think :)

If you don't shoot much sports, go for it. Personally, I'd love the 1D3 + 5D2 combo so I'd keep those two bodies. But if you don't shoot sports, it might be worth it. Also, the 5D2 has native ISO 6400 whereas the 1Ds3 only goes up to ISO 3200 through expansion. So if you shoot in very low light where ISO 6400 is needed, it's probably worth keeping the 1D3/5D2.

If you are not shooting sports I would probally make the trade if the financials are fair.
Iso800 completely usable on all of the bodies mentioned.


1DsIII - 1D IV - TS-E24L - 14L II - 35L - 135L - 400L 5.6 - 2 - 580EX II & CP-E3 - 270EX II - 1.4xII - 25mm Ext. - Angle Finder C - Jobu/Manfrotto - Sunwayfoto/Manfrotto - SkimmerPod II - Toshiba I7 - NEC Spectraview - Pro 9000 II

Cheers Moose. I'm starting to cool on the idea as I know that as soon as the mk IV comes out with better image preview etc I'd want to get that. Ack, if only I was made of money :)

It sounds to me that you have an ideal combination with the Id3 and 5D2. I think I would keep what I know rather than risking a swap with an older body, as good as it might be!

Id probably make the swop, the only thing id think about is if you ever use the 2 bodies at once. If you dont I would do it. there is a guy on the new CPS news letter shooting GP with his 1dsmk4, so the AF must be really good... Also you get the 2 cameras packed into 1 body instead of having 2....

I would stay with what you have got as you will gain very little if anything, if you are hell bent on geting a 1dsmk3 sell the gear and buy a new one.

That's really a tough one. I've been considering trying to sell me 1Ds II for a 5D II but I thought it would just be better to have the 5D with the 1D instead of having a 40D as a second body.

The question is, did you get the 1D III for it's functionality or for the fact that it was a slightly more affordable 1D body? You know what you would be getting with the 1Ds III so does it have the functionality you will need? Only you can answer these questions

just dont do it. you will miss having two bodys, being able to have a "small" camera, or having a fast camera.

The 1ds is a superb camera, but look at the value involved in the trade, doesn't quite seem fair to you. Plus you'll be going from two bodies down to one.

I would keep the 1DMKIII and 5D MKII.
Just seems more flexible vs. having one 1DsMKIII.

FWIW.... I sold my 1DMKII and 5D and bought a 1DsMKIII and I've never been happier.
