    I can't believe they didn't go with a full frame sensor on the 1D Mk. III. It's also a shame they can't come up with names that are easier to keep straight, they all start with EOS 1. But I guess they figure if you're going to spend that much, you'll research what they mean

    It seems like it mostly for sports guys

    I'm glad the didn't go with a full sized sensor. There are adv/dis to 1.6 as well as full frame. The 1.3x crop has worked nicely for me as a middle ground. Besides... the 5D and 1Ds MII both have full frame sensors available. That is more than enough choices for those wanting FF. There's no reason to add another to the mix and potentially loose a feature that makes the 1dMII/III unique. The 1D have a different purpose than the 5D and 1Ds which doesn't necessarily require FF sensor.

    The 1D series of cameras have always been designed mainly for sports professionals, they don't want or need full frame, the 1.3 crop is too useful for them to drop. 300mm F2.8 becomes a 390mm F2.8 10mm difference from the 400mm 2.8 but at less than half the weight and at least £2000 less. Also wildlife photographers like the fact that the 500mm F4 becomes a 650mm F4 and again a lot less weight than the 600mm F4 and again a lot cheaper.

    hmm, interesting, I heard it has life display preview. you can just lock the mirror and then use it just like a P6S ;)

    I remember someone was complaining that only few dSLRs had this features today.
