Canon Mark 1d Mark III
I've been shooting with this camera for about a month so it seems like a good time to critique it. Overall I'm not impressed. At $4500 I expected unicorns and ferries. What I got was a camera that is slow to focus and does not have a full frame sensor. This camera weighs more than the trusty 5d and has much more bulk. I was hoping the extra features would make up for it. They don't. This camera does not perform as well in low light situation like concerts as the 5d does. The screen is not as sharp as the 5d's screen - making it very hard to check my work. I like the live view and the self cleaning sensor, but at the price of the non-full frame sensor, the fuzzy screen and the extra $2000 cost it isn't worth it.
