How Good Is a 1DS Mk3 Now Days?

Hi guys,

i do not know anything about this camera whatsoever. Is it a bad idea to buy this body in 2014?

I shoot portraits 90% of the time. Does this camera have video at all? I will assume not.

Anyway, the main reason why i am asking this is because i was looking at other forums and ran across a thread showing that the DXO Colour Metamerism Index has a VERY VERY high score of 86.  MOST new cameras amazingly don't score this high, not even close.  This alone tells me that this camera outputs FANTASTIC colors and skin tones???

This body used cost around $1K.  What's good about it and what not?  Is the ISO good?

Any information you can throw in i will appreciate.  Thanks.
