7D or 1D MkIII
Jan 8, 2010

Having decided that my next camera would probably be the 7D, I have been waiting for the UK prices to drop to something more reasonable. Now they have dropped below £1250 I was hoping it would be only a few more weeks before I would jump.

However today I noticed that Jessops is selling the 1D MkIII for only £1999! Previously I had dismissed the 1 series as too expensive, but now it is looking very tempting.

My interests are mainly wildlife, BIF etc, so AF is the main priority. So (to save me having to do too much research) I wondered if anyone could comment on the main differences and whether the 1D Mk III is worth the extra £750 (or £600 as I would also want the grip for the 7D).
