What makes a shooter using an old 1DIII have any different requirements in terms of this forum than say a 5D3 shooter?

Shutter bounce issue, submirrors and dots on boxes, batteries, battery chargers, accessories, custom functions, which cards to use, lens choice for 1.3x crop, expected repair costs, 2nd hand value, etc etc

I'd rather they split and I use both 1D(s) bodies and 5DIII. I could locate info faster.

I never thought that reasoning had to be "decomposed" to this basic level for the concept to be understood and stripped out of its evoked snobbery component...but, yes, it probably had to be done.

Yeah, I have 1.6 crop, 1.3 crop, and FF (1Ds, 5DII) bodies, and would rather see the 1D series split off. The 1D(s) bodies are different, especially the old ones. If the forum pace was slow, so be it. It might be so slow moderation would almost be unnecessary. Less burden on the management end. A win win

Of course...

What I find curious is the constant reference to "snobism" as the reason behind this common -sense request.

I, for one, will probably not be able to afford a 1D body for my next camera, given the Canon commercial course of action.

I will then migrate to whatever camera body I find fit and will happily frequent that particular camera class forum from there on....Can't phantom what the problem is.
