A few more action pics from the camera that can't focus
Jan 9, 2010

All taken in the recent snowy conditions in the UK. 1DmkIII plus 500mm f4.

I have posted these images because I feel that there is so much nonsense spoken about the 1DmkIIII. It is not perfect but both mine (post submirror fix) have been the best autofocusing Canon cameras I have owned and also have exceptional image quality. I know some people have had bad experiences and believe the camera is a lemon and constantly remind us of this on this forum. I want to show that there is another side to the coin for anyone considering one and I believe that a 1DmkIII which is working correctly is a terrific camera in the right hands.I hope that the 1DmkIV is going to be even better. Sadly I expect the resale value of the mkIII is going to be poor due to its unfortunate reputation.

The images below push the AF to its limits and any improvement in camera performance in the 1DmkIV will be be most welcome to me.
