The 1Ds MkIII remains a capable tool for professional results. It's the oldest digital camera I wouldn't feel limited by. I was still using my 5D Mark II until this year, and only its AF limitations finally pushed me to upgrade. If I had a 1Ds III, maybe I wouldn't have?I use my phone most of the time and the rest of the time I use my trusty Canon 1Ds MkIII. The Canon is now about a decade old and in its second shutter but I still love it. The only thing I long for is a much higher iso capability.
