Bye bye 1Ds Mark III

Your death knell has just rung.

For the additional $5300 here is what you get with the 1Ds Mark III:

  • Improved body with weather sealing

  • Improved AF

  • One frame per second

  • ...err... not much else?

Here is what the new $2700 offers than the $8000 1Ds doesnt:

  • An extra TWO stops of standard exposure, and THREE stops in expanded mode.

  • A hugely useful 1/2 resolution sRAW1 format.

  • Full HD video capture - if you like that kinda thing.

Now I realize that a lot of 1DsIII owners are going to crawl out of the woodwork to bash me upside and down, but thats ok. The above information really speaks for itself. I would like to extend a personal and warm hearted "thank you" to both Sony and Nikon for the wonderful competition that made this camera possible.

Now all I need to know is when/where I can buy one. Its a good day in Canon land.
