Canon EOS 1D Mark III

1DmkIII
Review Date: Jul 10, 2007 Recommend? no | Price paid: $4,750.00 | Rating: 1 

 
Pros: It looks good. The advertisiments sound great.
Cons:
I feel the ISO seems to be false. 400 on the 5d is 800 on the Mark III. It is too quick to focus on low contrast areas rather than high contrast. Major focus and speed issues.

50% of the shots are out of focus. As compared to maybe .5% on my ID Mark ii, 5d or 20d. At 4.0 1/160 100 iso to 500 ISO (objects not moving) it looks like you are shooting at 2 seconds and 1.2. Not only do the images look blurry but they are double imaging. The worst part is now the weight has been reduced so as a boat anchor it is useless also.
