i agree. 5 mp sraw is worthless to me.

I'm actually not apposed to shooting in 5.5mp sometimes, with a native size of 6x9 at 300 dpi (only needed for offset printing) 12 x 18 prints can be made with no loss of quality from a 5.5mp file. I just prefer 10mp over 5.5

if you never crop and i usually do.

i prefer to err on the upside. you'll never know when you'll want more resolution .... even my 300d was 6 mp.

these days i'd like 10 mp minimum but with 13 - 15 mp and the 1d mark III would be all the camera i'd need .....but i'd have to get a 14L too :D.

i'd say in many cases you'd never see the difference in IQ and at hi-ISOs the 1d mark III is clearly produces better files.

the 1d mark III produces stunning images. better than the 5d classic i think, which i also owned.

there are times when the massive files are preferable but also times when they are an unnecessary pain.

you must be strictly a WA shooter if you don't have any use for the crop factor which is necessary for many sports and wildlife shooting.

Both are awesome.

One reason I prefer the 1D for sports and fast moving objects is not because of the FPS, but more because of the crop. The AF points fill up more of the viewfinder with a crop so it's easier to keep your subject within the ring of fire... especially when they're moving erratically.

I too wish the 1Ds had an ISO6400. I also find the 1Ds3 seems to handle servo focusing for very slow moving objects better than the 1D3. I was told because the the 1D3 AF is jumpier because it's optimized for 10FPS while the 1Ds3 is optimized for 5FPS. Dunno if that's true or not.

I believe only the 1Ds3 supports UDMA CF cards though.

Except that 10MP on APS-H has less "reach" than 21MP on FF. If you want to make an argument for the 1DIII for sports and wildlife it's the frame rate.

Well Mike, being that we shoot in dark place most of the time and judging by my first 1D III wedding 1600 on my 1D III was 800 on your 1DsIII.
I have a 6 foot tall banner in my office that I made from a cross section of a 10mp horizontal image and it's pretty good.
Plus I have my 5D II and your camera for 22mp files if needed.
