1d3 and 5d2 or 5d3 and 5d2

Hi

I currently have a 1d3 and need a second body. What option do you think would be better.

Comments and suggestions appreciated.

I mostly shoot studio work and family portraits on Location. There are also lots of dogs in my photos as I do charity work for animal charities.

Many thanks

I think a 5D2 will fit nicely with your 1D3, as you can use the FF body for studio and portraits while keeping the 1D3 for capturing moving dogs.

I have a 5D2 and the 1D MK III was a second body.  Mostly used for wildlife, but indoors in low light it did not do well at ISO 3200 and higher.
 
I think they pair well.
