Given that i have the 5d1 and the fact that the focus system on the 5d2 was identicle, id say i would shoot a wedding with a 1dsm3 way before the 5dm2 for focus points alone. Saving time composing with center point and then re-composing would be worth it alone. On another note the 1dsm3 had a higher level of sharp detail hence why it is an incredible landscape camera.

The 1DS3 is better than the 5D2 as an all-round camera until you wanted to shoot over iso800. Even the 1Ds2 is better to iso800.

Well theres that. Typically i used flash which didn't require over 800 iso at the time though. With the 5dm3 that i have now i feel more liberty to shoot high iso no flash photography. I have shot 3200 iso with the 1dm3 and if exposed properly it will render pretty well but if underexposed by 1/2 even 1/3rd stop it can start getting ugly. I just shoot dark receptions with flash anyway so no need for iso above 400.
The 1ds2 was better than the 1ds3 at iso 800? I never knew that! Being that it was geared toward studio was the low iso cleaner on the 1dsm3?

Sorry - I meant the 1Ds2 is better that the 5D2 to iso800

It gives very different colour rendition than the 1Ds3 - probably I would guess as it is only 12 bit. Of course the 1Ds2 is only 16mp, but then so is the 1D4

I would rather see a high dynamic range, without the HDR time delay of taking multiple exposures.

However, I think Canon should come out with a medium format camera.

A. CRs 35+ MP slower fps
B. 1D X Super fps
C. 5D III little of both
D. All of the above and put them into 1 body with price tag $10K plus

QA: Which body is right for you???

For me, I still take 5D III :)  Why? AF + high ISO + decent fps
Body: 1DX -- 5D III
Zoom: 16-35L f4 IS -- 24-70L II -- 70-200L f2.8 IS II
Prime: 40mm -- 85L II -- 135L -- 200L f2 IS -- 400L f2.8 IS II

...would you buy new expensive lenses for medium format ?  ;) I think that image circle of current lenses is too small to support medium format.

its simple

If you shoot
- landscapes, get 5D X (when it comes out, if it comes out)
- weddings get 5D mark 3
- birds get 7D
- low budget 600D (not 650, way too expensive for nothing...)
- video get a f**ckin video-camera!

i'd like to see a cheap FF DSLR

and some better dynamic range in RAW mode, so much invest on jpeg.. never understood why
some new features like an articulated screen in a FF camera.

I get the feeling canon waits for nikon to make a huge step and then just follow.. and that just gives me the creeps cause i support Canon for years!!!
Bodies: 5D3 + 600D

I agree with everything you said except, The 5D Mark II actually DID steal ground from the 1Ds Mark III.  That is a well-known fact.  I even bought the 5D Mark II instead back then, because it was cheaper and had the same resolution.  Most of the pros I knew from 2008-current never owned a 1Ds3 simply because of the 5D Mark II.

A lot of 1DS3 were sold - but to a relatively small market niche

However the 5D2 filled another market and sold like hot cakes. Some pros bought it purely from a ROI point of view rather than for IQ.

Whilst the 5D2 had the same mps it lost out significantly on fps, colour rendition and AF.

There are a lot of 1DS3 on the used market now - showing that it did sell

I agree it sold.  It was too specific though, whereas the 5D2 was well rounded.  The problem with the 1Ds3 was it was much harder to shoot weddings thoroughly vs. the 5D2.  Almost every wedding photographer I knew 2008-current got the 5D2 and passed on the 1Ds3.  However, I feel that the 1Ds3 is the ultimate landscape camera.  Ultimate.
Given that i have the 5d1 and the fact that the focus system on the 5d2 was identicle, id say i would shoot a wedding with a 1dsm3 way before the 5dm2 for focus points alone. Saving time composing with center point and then re-composing would be worth it alone. On another note the 1dsm3 had a higher level of sharp detail hence why it is an incredible landscape camera.

You'd shoot a wedding with a 1Ds3?  Haha, ok, good luck.  Better bring a ton of portable lighting.

There will be no big megapixel camera coming soon from Canon. It´s a joke.

First we see a entry level full frame camera.

Canon tested full frames with 26, 28, 30 and 40 megapixels in the last years, but decided against an put th 18 and 22 megapixel sensor on the market.

If you want to shoot landscapes use the 1 DS Mark III, it beats the D800E. Second choice for landscapes is the 5D Mark III.

If you have long lenses and want to shoot sports, action and wildlife get the 1D X.

If you dont want invest in longer lenses use the 1D Mark IV.

If you want a multipurpose camera for all (but in all not the best) get the 5D Mark III.

Concern if you talk about big megapixel cameras that the photographer is it who gets the shot. Most of the world famous photographers do their job with a 1 Ds Mark III and get outstanding pictures.

In the UK flash is fine for weddings, except during the actual ceremony. Coming back down the aisle afterwards makes for a classic 2 stand picture

I always shoot with flash, and yes the 1DS3 works very well. But of course the backup body needs to be good in low light for those times. Flash is needed both for sunny and dull days

I did my last wedding with about 80% 1DS3 and 20% 5D2. The 1Ds3 AF point metering really makes a difference in reducing the number of missed exposure shots.

I think having a 1DX as the main body and the 1Ds3 as the backup/portraits will make a great pair

If Canon do splitting (once again) between pro-journalists and pro-studio shooters and produce 35+ Mpix camera, then:
- if it will have improved noise, DR and priced up to 1DX price - then I'll buy one
- if it will be 5Dm2/3 only with small pixel size - no matter the cost - I won't buy it

I just hope they release something.  Luckily, it will bring down the price of 5DIII (even second hand) to my "acceptable" level (dependent on my pocket).  :)

Sure, if you use the EF-17 TS/E.

Otherwise none of the lenses create a big enough circle of light to cover such a sensor.
