Re: Should I sell my 1DMKIII and Purchase the 5D Mark III?

I appreciate all of the feedback.

The point about being able to crop is a good one.  I don't expect to get much from the camera.  Unlike my film cameras, which have held their value, or some of my lenses that have appreciated by thousands of USD, all of my digital cameras have tanked in price as soon as they are purchased.

I have to say, that the 1DMKIII remains a very good camera.  I would like to move all of my cameras to FF to match my film camera experience.  I should say that I still shoot with my Contax RTS III in B&W as much as my 1DMKIII, so upgrading isn't always my thing.  The posts on this thread make it clear that the upgrade looks like a good one and yes, I would be happier with the 1Dx, but I would never have the money to go FF with my mirrorless digital.
