Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III

1dsmk3
Review Date: Apr 21, 2011 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $4,200.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Everything, It's a great body.
Cons:
A/A filter

My only gripe is the Anti-Aliasing filter. My images from the 1Ds (11mp) were sharper due to thinner A/A filter. Besides that, it's a wonderful camera.

Pros: Image quality, build quality, full frame sensor, ergonomics, stellar AF
Cons:
Batteries are pricey, slow buffer

I've been looking for a full frame digital for a while now and found one locally for $700. I bought it with 4556 shutter actuations in like new condition. It was a steal of a lifetime! The image quality is phenomenal. There's a noticeable difference between the 1Ds and 40D when viewing side by side. The AF system is stellar, producing tack sharp focus at great speed. I've used the 20D and 40D and the AF systems in these camera's were something I just didn't trust. Noise is pretty pronounced above ISO 400 but the images are usable. The 1Ds is less forgiving when it comes to exposure resulting in noise. Precise exposure control though will prevent excess noise at high ISO settings. I use my 1Ds in the for fashion in studio and outside, editorial, advertising, and fine art photography. Since buying this camera i've relegated my 40D to a backup, seeing use only when high ISO work is involved.
