  • Excerpt: Had the Mk llls for 2 years and have no complaints, now lagging a bit behind Nikon in some respects, so it's now in the top two instead of the market leader. It is true what they say, to get the best from it you have to use Canons top lenses, I have settled for just three as I take mostly landscape images. 70-200 L 2.8 is usm. 24-105 L F4 is usm. 16-35 LMk ll 2.8. + the 1,4 L extender. Any rubbish images, is really my fault and not the cameras.

Good communicator .

  • Summary: I was a little leery about such and expensive item from ebay . But the camera looked brand new, it did encounter err99 problem ( this is a problem Cannon is aware of and is not that uncommon, its serious and fixable completely), as Cannon fixed it overnight air I got it back in less than a week, now it works very well . Joel, the owner of The Imaging World is a very patient and good communicator in which we worked out all the details of this sale.

  • Excerpt: I love my 1Ds2 but this camera is better in every way. I hesitated a long time to buy this camera due to all the problems with the AF and my belief that the 1D4 will be a blockbuster. It turns out that this camera has exceeded all my expectations and I got it slightly used for $4400 because of all the negativity. What a bargain!

  • Excerpt: Fabulous, well specified pro dslr with superb image quality, a great body and great features Problems: MASSIVELY and I mean MASSIVELY too expensive. It's simply not over twice as good as a 1D3 or 5DII, Canon need to rethink their pricing of the pro line.

  • Excerpt: I did not expect to find the childish chat when I really wanted a serious outside of Canon experience or opinion. I could not be happier with the camera. Having owned many film and digital Nikon products I finally pitched them all and purchased a Mark II before this camera. The Mark III is a big step up in construction and image quality.

Getting Better

Tony, B&H Photo
22 July 2008
  • Summary: Battery life is fantastic Multiple media types is useful The fact that you have to turn the highlight alert on and off in the menu is annoying, should be a separate screen as in the 5D The mirror lock up must be used on long exposures to prevent soft images Now Canon just needs to fix those terrible zoom lenses it sells
  • Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Quiet, Small Lag Time, Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: Overall, this an amazing camera. Best 35mm digi you can buy (in my humble opinion). I upgraded to this from the 1ds MK II because of some problems I had with info in the low values, causing some serious banding issues with heavy post work. Let me assure you, the MK III does not have this problem. The low values hold up quite well with extensive photoshop work. The image quality is amazing, with more detail than you will likely need.
