Conclusion: In many ways the EOS-1D MkIII is a niche product as not everyone requires a ten-megapixel SLR that can rattle off ten frames-per-second. For those that do, there is little doubt that this is a big improvement on the MkIIN and an excellent working tool in its own right. Its price range takes it out of the reach of the majority of photographers, but those who are fortunate enough to be able to afford one will have a camera that delivers in literally every department.
Summary: The Canon EOS 1D Mk III is unrivalled in terms of burst shooting and noise performance. Handling is excellent despite that weight and you’re ably assisted by clear and simple to navigate menus: even with all those custom modes and adjustments to hand. However, the good stuff is tempered by those disappointments: the LCD and the focusing performance issues, although Canon have already started to address with the aforementioned firmware updates.
Pros: Great handling, high frame rate, Build, High and Low ISO image quality, Superb feature set, Good metering.
Cons: Accurate exposure assessment on LCD difficult, Servo AF not reliable enough, Limited exposure modes, Price, Weight.

Canon’s EOS-1D Mark III; Canon’s High-Performance D-SLR Gets Updated
1 November 2001
Excerpt: The big SLR news for pro shooters so far this year is Canon's launch of the EOS-1D Mark III D-SLR. It uses a 10.1-megapixel CMOS sensor measuring 28.1x18.7mm that's about the same size as sensors in the EOS-1D Mark II and Mark II N, but has more pixels than the Mark II's 8.2 megapixels and the same focal length conversion factor of 1.3x.

One day there will be a better D-SLR than this ... but we'll probably have to wait a while. If you're thinking that this is just another Canon pro-level D-SLR with a bit of a tidy-up there and few refinements here, then you’re seriously underestimating the tour de force that is the EOS-1D Mark III.
