If the better build, higher FPS, extended shutter life, dual cards, greater custom functions, grip and other features aren't things that appeal to you, thats fine. That doesn't change that to many of us those features are very important.

+1.


cheers, juice (Canon shooter, Elinchrom lighter, but pretty much agnostic on brands.)

...The thing is that:

1. The 1D3 whips the 7D in most categories, even with the 7D's sheer resolution and on-board video.
2. The 1D4 costs U.S. $5,000.00 (which seems a true, all-round improvement over the 1D3).

Therefore, with such 1D4 price tag, the upgrade slope is steep for the majority of the user base... and after you work with a 1D-class body, a xD body seems pretty foreign in your hands, though.

Sounds like a tough case, though.

Yup.

Nice pictures! I like Coots, quite funny in spring when they fight a lot, and they do have the weirdest feet. :)

If I want a cheap extra battery for my Mrk III, what brand should I look for then? Any experiences?

My 7D and now my Mk3 both have chps in the battery. Since Canon is tight fisted with design specs, these two are the first bodies I have felt it would be better to buy OEM batteries for, which I did. Just feel it's better, safer to have Canon stuff inside there.

I have no complaints with Lenmars for the MkIIN though. But Lenmars for the Mk3 are about the same price as the OEM's.

I asked the same question when I was buying my 1D3. After researching around, a good chipped battery was running around $70. I spent the extra $30 and bought a Canon one. I was thinking that if the prices were going to be that close, I'd just rather know that it will fit right for weather sealing, have a warranty for holding charge, etc. I only alternate the batteries when one is drained and I'm charging it. Not like it's all that common of an occurrence as these batteries have a ridiculous amount of life to them

I need an extra one. Either the one I got used from Adorama is getting tired or I just do way too much chimping and live view. I only get about 500 shots per charge. So Im going to get a new LP-E4 when I find one a bit lower than 100.00

I get around 2k per charge, but I don't use LiveView nor do I chimp. I think your battery is fine, or else your camera would tell you that it needs calibration under battery info.

As for the $100, lowest price I saw for a used battery was $80. By the time you factor in pp and shipping, it's more expensive than new from most places. Kind of insane, but that's how it is.

Keep in mind that the 1D4 uses the same battery, so it's not like they're flooding the market from old owners like what happened with the 1D2 to 1D3 upgrade.

Thanks for you replies canonloader, TaDa and mastertech01 :) Sounds like getting a Canon battery is the way to go then.
