The 1D3 also has Live View with 10X Magnification, but it does not have Live View electronic shutter silent shooting modes nor does it have any form of AF in Live View (the 40D was the first)

I disagree that you don't need more than ISO 800 with flash, I often use flash + ISO 3200 for events that are lower in light

Anyway here's a comparison at ISO 6400 between the 2 cameras:

QUOTED IMAGE

I drag my shutter at almost all events, so the subject and background are always exposed good and I can get the effect I want based on whether I decide to shoot still or move a bit. You can disagree for your style of shooting but mine does it just fine.
