Canon EOS 1D Mark III

1DmkIII
Review Date: Jun 3, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: All around better feel than my 1DM2N. Lighter, better grip feel, seems thinner. Finally a better button setup. The ISO button next to the shutter release to cool. Better batt's. Small and don't weight a ton.
Cons:
Will take a little while to get use to the new menu and button layout but already know it will be much better when I get use to it.

I seem to be one of the lucky few. I don't normaly shop local for gear, but no cameras are to be found online. I just walked in to my local shop and happened to fall in to a missing persons spot in the waiting line. I was told to come back next week and they would have a few more cameras coming from Canon and I had a good chance to get one because there are some orders that are not serious. Got a call on monday and their you go. New camera in hand. Good for me bad for all who now wait. I guess the moral of the story is to keep checking your sorce and others you might have not considered or walked by. I did the same with my 1DM2N right after it was released when there were none to be found in other places.
