1DmkIII
Review Date: Apr 30, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $4,200.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Blazingly fast AF, fantastic LCD, viewfinder, customizations, best IQ of any camera I've owned, clean high ISO's, best ergonomics to date
Cons:
none

After being a Nikon user for many years, I had planned to upgrade to the D3. I tried it in a local store and was not at all impressed with it's build or feel. Even the old D2 series was better. The vertical grip was especially clunky to use (and hard on my wrist)

So, I asked to try the new Canon 1D MK3 and was BLOWN away with it. It's like a piece of art, and head and shoulders above what I was used to on the Nikon side. I ditched my Nikon kit and couldn't be happier.

AF is faster and more accurate than anything I used on the Nikon side. It felt about 2x faster than the D3 I tried, and much faster than any of my previous D2x cameras.

The bonus is that Canon has a better lens lineup for me. And, prices for the Canon lenses are much cheaper than what is comparable for Nikon.

I'm glad I've seen the light and made the switch. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
