"Best DLSR made, Canon still on top..."5.0 starson by imagicdigital
Pros: Fast, tough, incredible image quality
Cons: Not for amateurs.
Summary: The focus issue (which was minor) is now fixed, so ignore all those reviews from people who've never even seen one of these cameras.
Sorry Nikon, but Canon still has a lead in the Pro DSLR segment. Specs don't show how truly superior the 1D-MK3 (and the 1Ds-MK3) are to the Nikon D3, but experienced shooters who've used both will see that the Canon's Image Quality is higher, despite a slightly lower pixel count. The 1DMK3 performs at top speed with all features active, the Nikon D3 cheats to achieve full speed.
The most visible difference is seen in the quality of the final image. The 1DMK3 is sharper at every ISO, with noise just as well controlled. Highlight Tone Priority gives the 1DMK3 a 1-stop advantage in dynamic range... that's a big deal.
Most pros are bound by their collection of lenses. The 1DMK3 from Canon gives Canon shooters reason to be happy, they continue to have the world's best DSLR series to go with the world's larges and best collection of lenses.
