Hey, Brian can deal with me.  I own both cameras so he can't say too much :)

I shot with the 1Ds3 Saturday following a steam engine excursion and boy that is an incredible camera ISO 400 and below.  In fact, I didn't have any incorrect exposures, and to the 1Ds3's credit, sometimes I get incorrect ones with the 5D3 even in auto ISO w/manual.  But that shot I posted, no way! :)

No flash allowed!  ISO 12,800 with 5D Mark III and NR set to 50 in Adobe Camera RAW

Very nice.  Thats a lot of DoF for F4. What lens was it?

Yeah, I'm curious too.  It's a great shot.

Well, i just got my 3,099$ mk3 from evil bay. Shot some High ISo B&W's to see the cameras limits and was just blown away. Usable 51,200 ISO compared to 6400 on the 7D! Just shocked.  :o

Good enough for a 4x6 print and thats fine for ISO 51,200!

Got the bucks to buy it, saving up for a nice WA and waiting for the price to come down a bit...;-) Currently shooting a 30D. Was at a castle last week. Tickling out the best of the H setting ISO 3200 with a slow 10-22 at f 4... What a great result at these ISOs! I like the rawness in it and I like Robert Frank "The Americans"-style of your photograph. Definitely my cam. Thanks for sharing. Cheers, Pedro

I was WRONG on the ISO.  It was 1000.  I am trying to upload the 12,800 right now.

The MK3 isnt worth 3500$ retail IMO but, its worth 3099$ I got from evil bay brand new never opened USA retail! I'd recommend Ebay for that price while its available but just be mindful of the seller credibility and ask questions about it before hitting buy it now.

As for the robert frank complement, Thank you. My personal Favorite was henri cartier bressons work in the 50-60's.

Great camera. I was blown away as well. People need to quit talking numbers and get out and shoot some pictures!  Talking numbers will always happen. In a few years when 100mp cameras are out, people will still be analyzing numbers and complaining about one thing or another.  Chill out people, it's all about having fun and enjoying what you do, be it for fun or as a pro.  I am very happy with this camera. And to think, I was considering switching to the dark side. So glad I didn't!!

Another example where 'the grass isn't always greener'.  ;)

Thank you Bob, sorry to be off topic a bit... just wanted to share my happiness about the shoot and the fact that we survived it without any lightning :))

...also very happy that everyone loves their 5D3, I'll be too once the prices are going down a bit... :)

Thank you...nothing special just a 60D and a 430EXII flash on a flexible tripod and some CS to get the blues.. it was a pretty dark and stormy day... Of course it's far from perfect but I try to learn from every shot so next time I'll position the light higher :)  The young lady - Alicia - is my fiance, (thank you again) just starting in modeling so we're trying to put together a book for her..
