Summary: I am so happy with this item It is difficult to describe. Package arrived a day early via Fed Ex. Comdition was even better than described by seller. First couple of tests have yielded results that I am overjoyed with. Wish I had purchased this sooner.
Summary: What do you say about any EOS 1? It is the standard by which every other camera is judged. The 1D mark III is the fastest - if you need 10fps, it's the only game in town. Although not quite a full frame camera (1.3), the print quality is comparable to the best of the full frames, and a full frame can't go this fast. If you have a sharp lens, 24x36 prints still look great.
Summary: At the time of this review this camera is a little old compared to current technology. So with all the other reviews out there i'm not going to beat up a dead horse with everything you've herd or haven't herd about the camera. This camera is built with speed in mind and for me it has far exceeded my expectations. When I was deciding on what to purchase I thought the 10.1 MP would be a hinderance to workflow as i'm more familiar with higher MP files.
Summary: This is my first professional DSLR after upgrading from a good old Rebel XT. Needless to say it is a huge difference. I'm a photography student and I'm also a freelance photographer at nightclubs during weekends. This camera is amazing as you could expect from any EOS 1D. For my purposes 10 MP is more than enough as most of my pictures get downsized for Facebook but if I want to print, I can go as high as 11x14" with no loss of quality.
Summary: Camera arrived when promised and in the condition stated, if not better. Looked brand new. I used it on two photo shoots so far and have had no issues with it. All the issues attributed to this camera had been repaired by Canon and it seems to be working perfectly for me.

Summary: I've shot with Canon cameras for twenty years. Every time I'm in the mood to do a major upgrade I always go to a camera dealer and take a look at the competition and each time I've done this I've always stayed with Canon. This camera is built like a brick. Canon tells us they dropped some weight from the previous model, but it is still quite hefty. Yet, it fells balanced and solid in your hands.
