Perhaps you are thinking of the 1D3 AF problem - the 1DS3 has always had good AF.
I always knew about this problem with the 1D3, but read in a forum elsewhere that the 1Ds3 also had this problem - it's possible that that person didn't have their facts straight.
IIRC, 1Ds MK III had/has the same AF issues as the 1D3, hence why one of the Canon fixes for AF was for both 1D & 1Ds (I had both my bodies adjusted).
If life is all about what you do in the time that you have, then photography is about the pictures you take not the kit that took it. Still it's fun to talk about the kit, present or future :)

Those of you who have the 1DS III (or 1D III) - are people generally intimidated by its size?  Do you believe that people respond differently to having it pointed at them than they would with a standard sized body?

It's just something I've been pondering.  My 1V has the flexibility of being able to add the battery grip if you *need* it (which adds 10fps performance to the body at the same time), but you can't exactly remove the grip from a 1D...

They're, their, there, it's, its, too, to, than, then, you're, your.  One lens, two lenses, the lens's aperture.

I would say no. I'd think a big lens is more intimidating. Plus, its all about how you interact with your subject, its your job as a photographer to make them feel at ease.

AF AF AF of the 5D mark iii.
Try it yourself.
Yes I know the 1Ds is also good,but please try the AF of the 5D mark III.
For me worth the upgrade !!!!

Clearly you haven't used a 1DS3 then - you would be hard pushed to tell the difference - 4ms if I remember correctly. Same with the 1D4 as well - the 5DIII AF is not significantly better than the series 1 but the metering in the 5DIII is significantly worse if you are not using the centre AF point

Yes I have used the 1Ds.

Most of the Deer images on my website where made with the 1Ds.
Have you used the 5D mark III ?

Initial focus is faster on the 1Ds.
But the AF on the 5D mark III is more accurate.

Do you really think nothing has changed in the AF since 5 years ???
Sometimes a 1D series can be outperformed by a not 1d series.
Especially a 5 year old 1D. (1ds was released later then the 1d,but have the same AF system)

So you are saying that the 1DS3 is faster but less accurate - how would you define less accurate then?

I have been through www.wildlife-photos.net and the 40D was the highest used followed by the 1D4

I noticed that too - although it's nice to see what the 40D can do with a giant lens attached!  :)

I wish I knew someone with a 1DS so I can try it out for myself.  Not much chance of that though.  I even contacted the largest camera store in my city to see if they had any left, and the answer was a definite 'no'.

I loved my 40D and have only just passed it on to a good friend who is making good pictures with it.

I was so tempted the other day, almost went for a 1DsIII...and under 10k clicks.  But going for the 5D3. ;)

I think the 5DIII is the better all round package.

The 1DS3 has some dealmaking features if you need them, in my case:

- AF point linked metering
- F/8 AF

It comes down to price and budget of course, but I still think that the 1DsIII is the most ideal camera on the market. I was "only" able to afford the 5DII but I would chose the 1DsIII over any of the others, including the 5DIII and the 1Dx. I still don't see how the 1Dx is an "upgrade" from the previous top shelf pro model.

I feel that the 1D4 is better value for money for sports/wildlife, 5DIII better as a general purpose body

There will be a few people that need the extra fps and better low light of the 1DX

So what do you think, Canon coming out with a high MP camera?  Just like the 1DsIII when it was king of the hill for res.  Canon has been ahead up to now and nothing was said until the 800 showed up with 36MP, lol.
