Reviewing the Nikon D3 and Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III

A number of readers have emailed to ask if I’ll be reviewing the new Nikon D3 and Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III. The answer is yes, but I have to wait “in line” like everyone else to buy the cameras, so I hope that I’m close enough to the top of the list to be able to get started as soon as the cameras ship. My previous blog entries share some thoughts on the new models (see Sept 17 for starters).

In the meantime consider this: 2nd rate lenses or lenses that aren’t perfect optically (build and assembly) are just not going to cut it on these cameras. Start testing your lenses now and make sure there is nothing out of whack if you’re planning on either of the new camera models and/or the D300 and/or the Canon 40D. If you see an issue, get that lens in for service, ideally documenting the problem with a print. That includes focus too.

One of these days I’ll write up how to test for such things (it can be quite demanding to do it well), but for now, find a brick wall or building with detail and look for symmetry of sharpness across the frame, keeping subject-to-camera alignment in mind (shoot wide open).
