Re: Another "Which body?" post. 1DsMKIII, or...?

For me, the main drawback of the 1Ds3 would be the noise level. Even though the 5D2 used the same, or a similar sensor, the 5D2 looked good up to ISO1600 without needing a lot of work.

The 6D2 in the used market or grey market is under $1300. A few hundred dollars more than a 1Ds3, but with a lot of added benefits to justify the price.

Another option is a 1D4, which is a little newer and would play nicer with your crop-body lenses like the Sigmas being the last Canon body with 1.3x crop. It also has video and you get the performance of a 1D body with the FPS to match. It's lower res than your 7D but should look a little better.

The 1Ds3 is still a good camera. There's just better options if you want better performance and quality.
