1D Mark 2 + 3 were disaster cameras for Canon. All kinds of issues that countless firmware updates didn't rectify. A complete marketing disaster for Canon who still haven't really recovered the market share they lost.

Perhaps you could argue, they got too big for their boots and Nikon were ready to knock em down.

Not everyone who says something has something to say.

Started out on Canon Digital Rebel, as it was first DSLR for under $1,000. I had the 1 D2 & 3. The 1D3 spent a few trips to Canon for repairs. When the 5D2 came out with the same crappy focusing system as the 5D, I bought a D700. Liked it so much bought a second D700 and unloaded all my Canon gear, which at the time was four Canon DSLRs (I did own six), and 12 "L" series lenses. I'm now getting an Olympus M1. If it lives up to its hype I see myself unloading half my Nikon gear.
