I wrote this review after over 10K shots with my 1DMk3, ranging from bird-in-flight, wildlife and landscape shots. The 1DMk3 comes very close to THE camera for me. I no longer have to use my 1DMk2 exclusively for action and birds, and my 1Ds exclusively for landscape shots, as the 1DMk3 can do at least as good as my other 'specialized' 1D bodies. With the 1DMk3, I routinely shoot at ISO 1000 and above, compared to the 'standard' ISO of 800 with my 1DMk2. Basically, I can extend my shooting for another half to an hour due to poor lighting. Absolutely love the long battery life, sensor cleaning and AF Micro Adjusmen festures. Will wait to see how the 1DsMk3 performs before making the decision to go for another 1DMk3 or the 1DsMk3.
