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.
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
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.
