Sports Photography 4win!
Steve oliphant: It is clear to see that not one of you are real photographers or now anything about photography ,yes the lens is over priced but if you are a real naturephotographer you will have advantage to the full 35mm guys as you will be able to shoot at F5.6 of a bear and get his nose to its ears in focus on full 35mm its more like F11 and no the light gathering will be f4 tards.
You need to study better the light gathering abilities-f equivelants etc. there is no workaround to shallow DOF when it comes to light gathering. there is no advantage, in neither system when you want more things to be in focus.
Marty4650: This could be a bonanza for computer makers!
Its should be subsidized by computer manufacters! It will boost the need for hard disks, cpus, ram,
AussieDex: I bought my 1D Mark III Used. I bought it soupy for the purpose of Wave Photography. I love the 10fps. So clutch. Only thing I am not crazy about is the low megapixle. 10 mp is pretty low, Ie, GoPro hero 3 silvers are 11 mp and blacks are 12. They are only 300.
This is a 1d-S III , not the sports, 1d3
Deorum: Seems funny how when he takes the camera out of the advertised bag, lens cap is already off.
Nice bag though, nice design
Excuse me, but does the front lens element rests on a soft pad? Or i am missing something? I would do that only with lens hood fitted.
BTW, does it fit with lens hood ?

BarnET: Have to admit.For a 50mp sensor the ISO performance is pretty impressive!
Why you assume that more MP would mean worse iso performance? when did this happen?
Old Cameras: If it performs well (is sharp) wide open and has good focus mechanics it could be a bargain.
Its manual focus, what good focus mechanics can a manual focus lens have so it is a bargain?
Just a Photographer: More resolution at the cost of image sharpness of everything over f8.0 due to diffraction. People will soon find out that the more megapixels doesn't automatically imply more sharpness and detail.
To start learning about physics and the laws of nature and why diffraction kicks in with this camera. Read this:
FYI. The Canon 5Ds sensor pixel density is 4.1uM.
There are no "LAWS of NATURE" that prohibit certain things, dont say things that are invalid. Especially there is no LAW of NATURE that says "PAST 50mp, in a FF camera, resolution drops". The Laws of Nature, are fundamental laws, thermodynamics, gravity etc, week/strong nuclear forces. all other things considered, theoretically we could achieve sharpness... at plank level. This old myth is persistent since 10 years ago, when we went from 2mp to 6 or 8mp. And keeps being disproved and disproved, again and again. The exact same words that "you cant beat laws of nature" As if there is such a law. More like a hypothesis at some point. More resolution is better, albeit we have diminishing returns, but... not worst in any case.
I always wondered why EU prices are the same number of € vs $. GBP is correctly about 1/2 of $. What about €€???
Great an option for my 1ds3 too, would be great!
It is a great place and spot and moment, but not a great photo. Colors are really suppressed, could be B/W almost, and information very limited.
Ross Becker: I've never had IS on any lens so never miss it. And I almost always have the minimum shutter speed set to faster than the longest FL. I use 2 x 1D4s with a super wide on one (12-22mm) & an 80-200mmL on the other Both cameras set to Av & auto ISO. Perfect images every time. Who needs IS? Not me.
Ross, you have such beatifull bodies with the 80-200? It was good for its era, but nowhere near 70-200 (all versions)!
