Canon EOS 1D Mark III

1DmkIII
Review Date: Dec 27, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $2,250.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Solid build, image quality, fast AF, battery life, custom functions.
Cons:
Takes some getting use to.

I am coming to this camera late in it's life, which is fine with me since I got a fantastic price on a GREAT camera. I traded my 7D and cash for this camera and could not be happier. It is build like a tank. For sports, it is still up there with the best of them at 10 fps. I know about the focusing problems, but for the most part, with the Canon fixes, that is a thing of the past, which unfortunitly has hurt it's resale value. That being said, with the MK 4 coming out people are giving them away. Give it a try, at $2K it is probably one of the best deals out there.

Pros: -color -bokeh -sharpness -excellent build
Cons:
-slow focus

I really was looking for a MKII version of this lens and this one became available. The colors, the sharpness, the bokeh are excellent. I shoot with the 5D MkII and this lens really shines. I haven't tried a MKII version but I quite happy with the old version.
