I already have a 5DII. The new 7D seems like it would be a nice complement. Thoughts?

I'm considering it. I generally prefer the smaller bodies, and the 7d has most of the features I appreciate in my 1d-III. I have a 5d-II as well, and most of the time its the camera I grab, so the 7d would be the highspeed backup, and second body.

But, I'll wait for some real hands on reviews. Canon has had several recent releases that on paper would compete with the 1d-III, including the 40d. This one may be for real with dual processors, but does it have a separate AF processor?

I am with you. I like the smaller body and the 7D has all the features I want and then some.

but then... FFs are really good for high ISO qualities and 7D is a crop.
i'd just keep 5DMKII for the heck of it.

5D/7D is a killer combo...especially if you don't need the pro build quality.

if it 'feels' good for you, go for it!

according to the mountains of tech data it does have a dedicated af sensor which is tied to exposure metering as well. incorporates color information to aid in af and metering.

I am not selling my 5DII. Just considering the 1DIII to sell. The FF and 1.6x work well together.

not the same but traded my 1dmk2 to get the 7d.1d2 and 1d3 owners will notice a huge drop in secondhand price very soon if not already, although the 1d4 is not here yet alot of people think like the op as with a 1d4 on the market price will drop alot again. look at the 1ds2 after the release of the 5dmk2, as well i think alot of people is getting the 5dmk2 instead of the 1ds3 so basically i would sell the 1d3 if im not happy with it. but if im happy with it keep it until it dies ...

I wouldnt,
I would rather have a 5DII and 1DIII.
The 7D will be a great cam I am sure, but Canon is not going to make the 1D series obsolete by putting a ultra fast AF system into a 1.6 crop... even if on paper it looks like they did.

I would sell your 1D MK3, if you do not need a 2nd body, I have a 5D MK2, and a 1D MK3, and not used the 1D MK3 since, sure I may have missed a few shots, that the speed of AF may have nailed, but we are talking about something moving very very fast and close in different directions.
But I still got a few shots with a 5D MK2 and 100-400L, though most were oof, but lets face it not even sure a 1D MK3 would have done a lot better, most at 1/500 f5.6, and only ever shot one shot at a time with AI servo, but I do on the 1D MK3 as well

And lets not beat about the bush, not a lot of a crop, on those shots, and this thing was moving like a rocket in all directions hunting for the fake rabbit.

I would sell the 1D MK3 and wait for the next gen 1D MK
