1D Mark IV and 1D Mark III Users; Buying Help Please
Feb 11, 2012

I know this is an odd question to ask since many photographers are coveting the 1Dx, but here goes: I use my 1D Mark III extensively for wildlife and some landscape photography --mostly as an amateur. I have a 1D Mark II that I use as back up but it has pretty low resolution and poor high ISO and it is annoying to have to haul around two battery chargers everywhere I go. I am considering getting a 1D Mark IV before they are no longer available. I don't really need the video on either the Mark IV or 1Dx and I definitely can't afford the price of the new camera.

I'm asking users of both the Mark III and Mark IV if you think I should get the Mark IV....
