FWIW if you follow what Paul Pope has been saying the 1dsIII is
ready and will be released in September allowing more time for chip
production.
don.

What I've heard is that they use the same assembly line for both the 1D and the 1Ds.

If that's true, I expect that they're grinding out 1D Mk III cameras right now to get sufficient numbers of them on the shelves. That could be another three or four months. Then they'll have to change the line over, train workers for the changes, run tests and quality control, then start the 1Ds production.

I can easily see why they wouldn't have both cameras shipping at the same time, and why there would be six months between them...if it's true that they are assembled on the same line.
