BTW why are we comparing prices of a just released 5DIII with a 4 year old MKII? $3500 for the MKIII and $2800 for the MKII, so you don't feel what the MKIII offers now over the MKII isn't worth $700?
You would be right if the MKIII had the best sensor available (just like 5DMKII when introduced)
In addition the price of 5DMKIII will have to follow the same falling pattern if we are to compare them...
Except of course the 1DS3 sensor was well ahead of the 5DII - so perhaps the 1DX will be better than the 5DIII
Brian, I agree with you. Adding: The 5D3 can take shots the 1Ds3 cannot take, but the 1Ds3 cannot take shots the 5D3 can't take. Overall it's a more powerful tool, sans the metering capabilities. The 1Ds3 I agree is well ahead of the 5D2 in most cases.
For high IQ, ie iso200 or less, the 1DS3 is hands down better than the 5D2.
Also the AF on the 1DS3 is far superior (and the metering) plus of course the 5fps is better than 4fps
The 5D2 only wins on iso over 800
Brian, I'm talking 5D3, not 5D2. Of course the 1Ds3 is better than the 5D2 in all aspects I think.
To answer the thread's question: No. I already have too many cameras
