thinking of selling both my old bodies and upgrading to the 5d3.... I tried a 5d2 and hated the feel and focus, but a quick play with a 3 in a local store and it seems much better.

Anyone done the same and regretted it? I do some sports (nothing serious, just horses for the family) but am doing more and more fashion and wedding stuff. Having useable ISO over 1200 would be awesome but will I miss the feel of the 1d images?

I just sold my 5D II and 1D IIn last week and purchased a 5D III. I will shoot my daughters softball games next weekend and I am wondering this myself. I did purchase the grip as the 5D III actually feels smaller to me than the 5D II, must just be the more rounded shape? I can't imagine how it would feel without the grip and my 70-200 attached. Technical wise there is just no comparison. I am a technology geek and just love all the new bells and whistles. The AF though on the 5D III is fantastic and I believe better than the IIn. I actually sold a 7D and kept the IIn because I liked its AF so much better for sports.

what the hell, I can't spend it when I'm gone - I've just pulled the trigger on a 5d3. If anyone in the UK wants a 1ds2 or 1d2n...

you won't regret it. I still miss my 1ds2 though. Get the grip for the 5d3, you'll appreciate the beefier feel it adds.

yep, ordered one of them too (not canon, one of the 100 dollar copies on amazon..)

edit to ask - what do you miss about the 1ds2?
