I was glad to see this thread! I thought I was the only person thinking about doing this. Honestly, if this camera was available 6 months ago, I would have bought it instead of my 1D3. To have several pro features without going all out with the pro body would have been perfect. I actually thought about going with the D300 because N*kon offered what I needed. Now that Canon has that body, I feel like I could let my 1D3 go and pick up the smaller more compact 7D since my preference is no grip. I will decide in the next week or so...

Then there is the MkIII battery - that lasts forever.

No kidding, that is just huge. I am already sick of BP-511 batteries on the 50D.

I can't imagine selling the MKIII for a 7D or any other camera other than maybe a 1DsMKIII if you absolutely need the larger files. Otherwise I prefer the MKIII to even that. If someone offered me $1,000 and a 7D for my MKIII, I would not make that deal. I do imagine the 7D will be a wonderful camera but at least for me I'll stick with the MKIII, if fits me so well and works the way I love to think and react. I truly love the camera and we all have our preferences but for me, nothing can touch it. If and when they come out with a MKIV, the only things I am wanting are a better viewing screen and maybe 16MP or any combination of sensor and pixels that might offer up a little more omf for comercial cropping of product shoots. Otherwise I'm very pleased with the IQ in every other way. The camera really has soul.

I'd say sell the 1D3, while it still has some resale value, and get the 7D. Then, if the 1D Mark IV, which will hopefully come sooner than later, meets your expectations, then get that.

Don't forget that the 7D is not the highest class, but i guess that doesn't matter.

Well a used MkIII for 2K is another story...

And that's why we get all excited about all these new releases, because then we can get the used bodies that we want at a price crawling closer to our budgets ~_^ When I have extra cash and they release the mark 4 I will definitely have the mark 3 used bodies on a close watch.

Absolutely NOT! I can't believe anyone would ever consider this unless they needed money desperately and had to downgrade their body, or wanted a DSLR for movie making above anything else.

The Mark III's ISO performance is AMAZING at ISO 1600. Downsample a 7D shot to 10 MP and I guarantee you the 1D3 will still trump it. The APS-H sensor is a big help if you have an L wide angle as well.

A post-recall Mark III will also overshadow the 7D in terms of AF performance, as well as having a better continuous shooting drive.

Then there's the almost non-existent shutter lag, the fantastic battery life, the awesome and fully tested weather sealing etc.

The 7D is not a professional camera. It's a high-end prosumer model. The 1D series will always be superior.

Lots of sports photgs love the 1.3 crop.

ahhh .... the voice of experience :D.

Basically what i meant is that if the put a crop factor into the body it might as well be 1.6.

the time I had the 1dmk2 i was never happy about the 1.3 anyway. all the way or the highway... :) The only reason for 1.3 in my opinion is if you dont have a FF and need to compromise the lenses.
