Get yourself something nice for Christmas. I’ll sell you my low-mileage near-mint Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III 21 megapixel DSLR for $4400, along with the original box and manuals. Looks like new, beautiful viewfinder, 21 megapixels.
I prefer shooting the 1Ds Mark III more than my 5D Mark II, but I prefer carrying the 5DM2! I must keep up with Canon’s latest, and the 16MP Canon 1D Mark IV cropped-frame camera is imminent, so something has to go to fund new stuff. BTW, the Canon 1 series allows me to succeed more often at lower shutter speeds than the lighter 5D Mark II.
