Re: 5DIII or 1DsIII
In reply to keithinmelbourne, Apr 18, 2012

Same experience for me. However, I've sold the 1Ds3 and my new 5D3 will hopefully come in a few days...

And, apart from what it's already stated, don't forget that the 1Ds doesn't take footage...

I recently bought a new 1Ds3 at half price, which puts it at the same price point as the 5D3. I previously had a 1D3 and a 5D2 (which I still have). One thing I did notice was that the 1D3 was able to drive the 85L and 50L much more efficiently than the 5D2. I know that the 5D2 has lousy outer AF points, but the centre point is very strong and accurate. Nevertheless, it does not seem to be able to power an 85L in the same way that a 1D body does. I believe that this may have something to do with the batteries. To cut a long story short, the 1Ds3 is still an awesome camera, which has meant that my 5D2 is hardly used. I am not sure how well the 5D3 drives heavy glass, but I would check it out before going there too quickly.

Dadme un mundo sin contornos,
Un espacio feliz que ignore los perfiles.
Concededme, sĂ­, la dicha redonda
De flotar sin conciencia en el fondo
Desenfocado de mis fotografĂ­as.

Give me a world with no edges,
A happy space knowing nothing about outlines.
Grant me, please, the round joy
Of thoughtlessly floating on the blurred
Background of my photographs.
