Canon EOS 1D Mark III

1DmkIII
Review Date: Oct 4, 2007 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: ISO performance, IQ overall, new button layout, lighter than mk2, superb colors, sensor cleaning.
Cons:
No joystick af selection, AI servo problems, shutter not working, design problems?

I am using my third copy, first one died out of the box without a frame fired, second one worked for a month and stopped working, error99 shutter just died, dont have much hope for my third body to work?!?
Its a love/hate relationship for me, on one hand image quality is superb, rich saturated colors, clean 1600 iso, outstanding battery life, new button layout works great and on the other hand ai servo in certain conditions is yerky and hunts?!?, ive used previos 1 series servo and hands down just doesnt work as well. Ive had shutter failure twice with new body. Canon doesnt admit any problems. At our official service center they told me that camera isnt build acording to specification?!? As a long time Canon user i fell like ive been kicked in the balls.
