Canon EOS 1D Mark III

1DmkIII
Review Date: Jun 18, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $4,499.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: A lot of small steps lead up to a big improvement. Image quality, focus speed, sensor cleaning, highlight tone priority, lighter, better battery with overall weight reduction, better ergonomics, bigger LCD, and more. This camera meets the promises Canon made for it and then some. Mine worked perfectly from the first click and is in productive use nearly every day. Its what a pro tool should be.
Cons:
None. It just works.

After 3 weeks of nearly daily use, all I can add is that it's the most trouble free new offering from any maker I've ever owned.

Pros: One of the few lenses I've bought where I can say its really sharp wide open.
Cons:
None

I just received this lens a few hours ago and did some images of a test chart at f/1,4. Its one of the sharpest Canon lenses I own and by far the sharpest WA lens.

I just sent my 24mm f/1.4 because of soft focus wide open and if they can get it anywhere near this lens, I'll be one haooy camoer.
