p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · 1d mark 3....


Hey I am looking to get another camera and I was wondering if I should get a 1d mark3 or a 1d mark2n and a 50d? I already own a 7d. I do shoot alot of sports, but I am starting to do alot of portrait stuff as well. These are the lens I have to go along with the 7d if it helps give an answer. I guess one of the main questions is will the mark 3's pictures print off good at bigger sizes 11x14 and 16x20 with the 10 mpxls?

70-200 2.8L
300 f4 L
50 1.4
85 1.8
Tamron 17-50 2.8 VC

Thanks

Ben

You'll love the 1DIII.

Yes.

Definitely go for the III if you can afford it. I don't have one personally, but I've been thinking to get another camera to match my 7D for sports and the III is the answer. Great camera.

1D Mark III. You will love it.
It was my first "1" series camera. Since then I've had the 1DMKIV and now have the 1DX.

the 1D3 is an amazing camera. Buy it and be prepared to be impressed by the immediacy with which it performs everything you ask of it.

For the relatively modest difference in price, I would, without hesitation, choose the 1D Mark III.

The 1D Mark II and 1D Mark IIN were fantastic cameras for their day, but, 7-9 years later, their technology has gotten a bit long in the tooth. Among the reasons why I would choose a 1D Mark III would be noticeably better high ISO/noise performance, lower weight, better battery performance, and the modest but noticeable increase in resolution. The user interface is, to me, more intuitive, and the larger LCD (even if it is relatively low resolution) is a plus. Additionally, I am among those who felt that the AF on the 1D Mark III was an improvement, and that is even before the alleged AF fixes offered by Canon.

Further, Canon has already announced that it is no longer servicing the 1D Mark II, and I expect that they will make a similar announcement about the 1D Mark II N in the relatively near future. Considering that a camera that is 6-7 years old is likely to have lots of clicks on the shutter, I'd feel better knowing that I had a camera that Canon was still servicing even if independent shops will still service the camera depending on whether they can get needed parts.

Sorry are you saying you'd like to go from a 7D to a 50D No use at all owning 50D if you have a 7D; 7D is a much much better camera IMO.

For what you want to do I'd get a 5D II

To the OP question about prints....I was doing 32x48 prints on my MKIIn....have no issues doing 40x60 on my MKIII.

I recommend doing the MKIII....you'll love the focus system, file size, better ISO performance and super long lasting battery life.

Once I got my first MKIII...never looked back

OH...also...you can push the exposure several stops over and recover wonderfully....!!!!

For similar money to the 1D3 you can get a 5D2. That is the best portrait camera for the money and compliments a 7D nicely and you can use the lenses you have already.

Mk3 for sure. The battery life alone of the mk3 is 2x that of the mk2N. You won't be sorry.

The 1d3 is a great all-around camera. Wonderful for sports and great for portraits. 10mgpxls is plenty for large enlargements. Don't get wrapped up in the megapixel race. The only thing I would prefer different is a bit better lcd on the back-not a major deal because I don't chimp much, but it will appear more fuzzy than the one on your 7d. Oh and as mentioned the battery life is amazing, I typically get 4 to 6 thousand shots on a charge! The build quality and responsiveness are also very nice.

The OP has a Tamron lens that is for crop sensor.

Went with a mark3 with about 40k in clicks looks like it is in excellent shape. I am excited to put it to use right away for MN State Basketball next week!

thanks for the input

Good luck! I recommend that you take a look at this (it was very valuable information for me):
