    Hi all:
    Just curious but as a newbie to digital cameras I will pose this question to all here. Why did Canon take there flagship model SLR and make it to be less megapixels and less expensive than the 1Ds Mark II.

    Mark III is 10.2 mp
    Mark II is 16 mp

    Mark III is selling new for roughly 5500 Canadian body only
    Mark II is still more at roughly 8000?

    Im just wondering if this new Mark III is a scaled down model of the Mark II for afordability.

    Thanks all for any help.

    Paul.

    Your getting the model names crossed up, the new camera is the EOS-1D MIII no “S” it replaces the EOS-1D MIIn not the EOS-1Ds MII , the “S” is a full frame model

    the EOS-1D MIII is made for shoting sports at 10fps

    The 1D Mk. III is a fast low light camera with excellent noise control and newer technology such as sensor cleaning, live view, and a few wireless friendly add ons. The 1Ds Mk. II is a full frame low light camera with excellent noise control that will get its own Mk. III version soon that is basically slower full frame with more megapixels and included tech upgrades as the 1d Mk. III.

    Canon has always had a 1D and 1DS. They were never meant to be compared to each other as they are marketed against very different photographers.

    1D - 4.5mp - 8fps versus 1DS - 11mp - 3fps
    1D-MarkII - 8.2mp - 8.5fps versus 1DS-MarkII - 16mp - 4 fps
    1D-MarkIII - 10mp - 10fps versus 1DS-MarkIII - ??

    All 1D's had 1.3 crop and all 1DS' had full frame

    You see the difference? The 1D series has always been the speedy one geared towards the sports/journalist (High FPS, crop sensor). The 1Ds series has always been the camera for use for fine art, studio, fashion photographers (Full frame, large MP sensors).

    The more "affordable" camera used to be the 10D, 20D, 30D and then they added a slightly higher model... 5D.
