My 1DsMk3 was $2300 delivered so $1400 is fantastic and a gift. I passed up a lot of $2600-2700 priced bodies. This low price insulates you from being hurt financially if there *are* problems down the road.
Do you know by any chance or have heard something about 1ds3 having a premature shutter breaking problem?
Any website that you can recommend to order a spare battery. I would like to get a canon lp-e4 because the battery has rubber sealing around it but the problem is, it will cost me an arm. I would like to get a cheap yet a good quality third party batteries. Ive looked at amazon and ebay already but people have diff experiences with their batteries. So i kinda want to hear other peoples oppinion that actually have owned third party batteries.
just stick with genuine batteries you are getting the camera for a steal, if you are going to get a 1Dmk3 too look around for one thats selling with 2 or more batteries (these batteries last alot longer than the ones on the 1Dsmk2 anyway
I think some 1Dsmk3 cameras have had premature shutter failures but i dont think its a a "common" problem
