Agreed. Still, I prefer the 'look and feel' of my 1D3 vs my 5D3, the grasp is more reassuring and it feels sturdier and more solid (well, the feeling of it, the 5D3 doesn't leave to be desired in this regards). It feels more a pro tool than the 7D (which is a great tool in its own right).

When I didn't have a 5D series, I felt quite often that it would be nice to have a solid but smaller (and more discrete and portable) good cam... which I have now. The original 5D, which I also have, feels cheaper and not so solid.

Haven't tried a battery grip yet (?)
