I have 5d mark II and I find this camera excellent but.. really slow. The auto focus is a bad joke, though the image quality is superb. Now, I wanted to get something much faster, so decided to pick up a used 1D mark III. What a difference! The camera feels super solid! It's such a great pleasure of using it. And it is FAST, really fast:) The image quality is excellent though not as good as 5d mark II. I paid for my camera $1300 in December 2012 (like new condition) but it can be purchased ...

Well firstley I must say that this is a fantastic camera. it takes good quality pictures in all diferant lighting conditions and the iso noise is okay. It is fast! and that is what you pay for. if you stick wit an f2.8 lens this camera will not fail. I wont mention the f99 autofokus issues due to that i havent had any. It is the 3'd fastest camera available. And it has all the professional features that a camera should have. It handles all SDHC and Compact flash cards. I realy like the non ...

fast in every aspect, very good battery life. af marks in viewfinder are way smaller than actual af sensor, so focusing can be tricky. a bit soft a the pixel level, can be solved with careful PP Problems: too heavy :-)

I rercently purchased this camera off of a friend of mine. It has seen very little use. I also own a Canon Rebel T3I which is a great camera also. I'm a retired GM photographer who just uses these cameras for personal photos like street photography and the ocassional wedding. So they really aren't put to extreme tests. The image quality and the build quality of the Mark 111 is outstanding. I really enjoy the camera. I have also owned the original 1D which I felt was a great camera for its ...

Traded my 21mp Canon 5Dmk2 for this camera on FredMiranda and I don't regret it a bit. The unit is responsive, focus lock is lightning fast and the build ... well, that speaks for itself. You WILL need to do your homework before firing off a few shots as this unit takes some getting use to. This is a "professional" camera, no pop-up flash, no knob, no auto presets .. YOU make it do what it does, and if you KNOW what you're doing it will NOT let you down. RAW images pop, and the focus ...

A superb piece of equipement, designed for rugged daily use. It produces files of an exceptional quality and being only ten mega-pixels it isn't as fussy as some modern cameras about lenses - of course quality is always a bonus! Great in the hands with controls and menus well thought out and intuitive. Love every minute with this camera and I would have great difficulty going back to a xxD now that I've been spoilt! If you can pick up a later model for a reasonable price you will not be ...

Had the 300D, then 30D. The 1D3, bought 1.5 years ago, is miles ahead in every sense: - AF is faster than fast. Virtually no hunting. - feels amazing in the hands. Solid, no empty space inside, no plastic. The material covering the grip doesn't slip even when wet. - battery life is unbelievable. I don't mind going away for 2 days without the charger. - portrait grip is fantastic. Helps for verticals. - menus really great. - x1.3 instead of x1.6. - colours, look of RAW files. - High ISO ...

Owned this camera 13 months now. My apprehension before buying was the low pixel count and to some extent i can't wait to upgrade to the mk4 for the more than likely increase to 16+ meg pixels. I bought an Epson pro 3800 A2 printer and find A3 is really the limit to the Mk3 after using CS3 to add to the file size. To 99% of people A3 is more than enough and it maybe for me once ive got the idea of big prints out of my system, but i cannot use the full potential of the printer with this ...

I've used this camera for a little over a year now. Mine was a blue dot version manufactured after the autofocus debacle. I have had no problems at all with the autofocus and have to say it is the best autofocus I have ever used. It is fast, accurate and can be tailored to just about any kind of use. The metering is great also with its 65 zone system. But image quality is where this camera shines. The pictures have a special 3-D quality about them that people really notice. The camera ...

I have used this camera fairly regularly for the last 18 months, and this camera has done everything I have asked of it. I previously owned the 5D, but traded that in for the 1D Mark IIN before moving on to the 1D mark III. Compared to the previous bodies, this offered me more for what I need it to do; that is to be there for me when I press the shutter release in low light, in the middle of the street, when you get one chance to get the shot. Some of these I have posted ( type in Gaijinphoto ...
