Re: Late August is the usual Canon announcement time

well it depends what types of pros you are around most, i almost never around studio/portrait/product pros and landscape pros are often out in the field on their own but im around newspaper/PJ all the time so from my perspective MOST serious photographers and pros are crazy about strong high ISO hah.

but getting back to 1DsMkIII prob are more tripod landscapers and studio people than other with that, even if you do hear about some sports guys etc. from time to time.

Strange as it might sound but low light capability is mostly demanded
by amateur photographer for snap shot type photography. Pros and
serious photographers will either use elaborated lighting set up or
use tripod for landscapes whenever they can. I don’t think many of
them and their clients will appreciate ISO800+ images from any
cameras. Perhaps that’s the reason you don’t hear many of them
mention low light capability of 1Ds3. There are exceptions of
course. Indoor sports photography is one of them but that’s not
where 1Ds3 is used.

i thought that the 1dsmkiii has the LOWEST noise per surface area of
sensor of any of the DSLRs and since it has tied for the largest
sensor, wouldn't that make it the lowest noise of them all, even if
definitely not the lowest noise per PIXEL.

If it did, you'd see a lot of talk and example high iso shots from
1Ds3 users and that hasn't happened. Yet most 1Ds3 users (the s
stands for studio) aren't using their camera for family snapshots
after sunset. They are shooting landscapes in good light and studio
shots in controlled studio lighting.
