So you dont think the MKIII is giving you better results than the 7D??? I've been thinking of that exact same swap, or saving for a 1D4 or a 5D3.

One thing to keep in mind, the 300 will be 480 on the 7D, might be too long a focal length?

Are you using a ff with the 300. Great shot, thats what the 300 is all about, isolation :) plus super sharp to boot.

I am just joking, I just really want a 300 too! It looks like my 7D is already sold along with my old 70-300 so that takes care of the Mark III bill. The next purchase will be something shorter and wider though.

After playing with some borrowed 1DS3 files I think it would be far more useful than my 300. The additional bokeh from the full frame sensor is pretty amazing in addition to the massive file size for printing/graphic layouts. Also having a bum wing shooting my 300 late into the day has become very difficult. A monopod helps but isn't a legitimate fix. \

BDW-Go with a 17-40. You will love it on your new 1D3.

Sorry to hear about your arm....DO NOT SELL THE 300 lol, the 300 on a full frame is pure magic, nothing like it, distracting backgrounds GONE with that setup. Plus it you are shooting with a 1.3 or so, you will really miss the reach once to get a ff.

And yes, these are JPegs pretty much straight out of the camera.

NICE! There is a difference for sure from the 7D. It seems to pick up the dark areas better.

Mataz426- My hurt shoulder is livable with a 1D3/70-200 combo but not with a 300. Honestly I will give up my 300mm f2.8 and one of my 1D3's to get a 1DS3, pay for my 70-200 to upgraded to the version 2 and maybe an AB800. The flexibility having both FPS speed and file size far outweigh my 300mm. It also fits the direction I am starting to go. Imagine your favorite picture printed the size of a wall or as a fathead that is razor sharp and just plain crisp. This is not likely possible with a 1D3, it could happen but you would have to be super lucky.

I think they look great as well. Do you enable the Highlight Alert (Blinkies)?

I must say 82 that is quite the image. The post in the background sucks but that is part of the track.
