Canon 1D Mark III vs Canon 7D
Jan 11, 2010

I'm struggling over a decision whether to purchase a used Canon 1D Mark III or a new Canon 7D. The 1D is in very good shape, has low actuations, and is a later serial number so it does suffer from the AF problems. I do a lot of sports photography but also some landscape and portrait work. As a result, the speed of the 1D is appealing for sports along with the build quality. On the other hand, the 7D has more reach due to the 1.6X crop and a nice AF system which would track subjects well. Does the 1D actually have better image quality than the 7D? Which camera do you think is better? The used 1D would cost me about $500 more than for 7D but I want to make the right choice.
