    some of that spec doesn't sound right...

    5 fps at shutter speeds 1/500 second or faster
    that make very little sense to me, since when do you need fast shutter speeds for 5fps? My 1D mkII can handle 8.5 fps at speeds of 30th of a second

    Sensor type: Full-frame CMOS sensor, with primary R-G-B filtration (28 x 18.7 millimeters)

    that's a 1.3 crop sensor size!!

    Advanced Autofocus Technology
    The EOS-1Ds Mark III autofocus system--first introduced earlier in 2007 on the EOS-1D Mark III Digital SLR--has 45 AF points including 19 high-precision cross-type points and 26 Assist AF points. This new array allows the 19 cross-type points to be divided into groups of nine inner and nine outer focusing points plus a center point, which makes picking an individual focusing point much faster and easier than going through all 45. During manual AF point selection, the AF point area is expandable in two stages via Custom Function control.


    Well as Canon are still having major problems with the AF on the 1d mkIII that doesn't sound good

    Flash sync is listed at 1/250 and 1/300 and up to 1/8000 with EX speedlite

    I'm sure it wouldn't be 1/300th as Canon 1 series don't have 1/300th it should be 1/320th


    me thinks strange things are afoot at the circle k

    I drooled and then i realized id never need a camera like that (or at least not for awhile) and i cant afford a camera like that either. Ha ha, looks nice though. Im more excited to see the 30d replacement thats rumored to be coming soon though.

    If I needed 20 megapixels, I'd much rather shoot with a Mamyia 645AF with a ZD back. It's about the same price and should be of much higher quality since each pixel is largerl, giving better ISO performance.

    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/502709-REG/Mamiya_310_100_ZD_Digital_System.html

    And if the 1Ds MkIII handles like the MkII where it takes two hands to operate the menus and be completely counter-intuitive to the point where it gets in the way of the photographer making pictures, than I don't want anything to do with it.

    :lol: I guess you've never used a mkII then?

    I mean its such a pain to have to HOLD the camera with one hand and use the other hand to navigate through the menus ;-) :lol:

    I have used 1Ds MkII's before, and I do not enjoy using them. It's all personal preference, right? :|
