Review Date: Sep 4, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $3,399.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: New Menu System, High ISO, Improved handling (one hand), Incredible IQ, highly configurable (Custom Functions), new AF-On button, battery last FoRever, My Menu
Cons:
Perception which will affect resale value...

The 1DMKIII is one of the best DSLRs on the market today. Don't let anyone tell you any different. The IQ and High ISO capabilities are incredible. Canon also greatly improved the menu system and access to the most used functions compared to the prior models (IDMKII an 1D). I was hesitant because of the bad perception this camera has received due to much debated AF issues. However, I was able to buy locally at camera store so I was able to test my copy and put those fears to rest very quickly.

This camera probably will never get its due respect, but I am not concerned about that. I will be too busy using the camera for its intended purpose.
