Up for sale is my 10.1-megapixel Canon EOS 1D Mark III, back from Canon USA Service for the focus correction “recall”. Canon has extended the warranty for a full year. Readers of this blog know that I have been thrilled with the stellar image quality from the 1D Mark III, beginning with my May 24 comments in late May, 2007 and continuing on for many months. It was also used for reviewing the Zeiss ZF Lenses. I never used the 1DM3 for sports shooting, so whether or not it had the focus issue the recall was designed to address is unclear.
10.1-megapixel Canon EOS 1D Mark III
So why am I selling it? Well, I can only use so many cameras, and I intend to focus my efforts on the Nikon D3 and 21.1-megapixel Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III going forward. Also, lens reviews are best done on full frame cameras, now that both Nikon and Canon have them.
My for-sale EOS 1D Mark III has (obviously) just been serviced by Canon, has the 1 year warranty extension, and is in near-mint condition. The original box, manual, USA warranty card, Canon service documents are included. I’m asking $3500. This is a great camera in great condition—buy from someone you can trust!
