ChilledXpress, I agree with you. I used to buy the 1D series for weddings, but no longer need to. The 5D series now has what I needed from the 1D series; and it's cheaper and easier to carry. People who think the 5DIII is just a 5DII with the AF "fixed" don't realize that it's an entirely new camera, with upgrades throughout (100% viewfinder, shorter shutter lag & mirror blackout, quiet shutter mode, better high ISO, etc.). I think the 1D series still shines for high speed action such as sports and in really harsh environments that break lesser cameras. And I believe the 1D series still offers some extra performance at the high ISO end.
