    Canon needs to just come out with a 1D4 already.

    Digic IV goodness? I think it's purely speculation at this point, but i doubt they're going to leave the 1D series without the new processor

    Jesus Canon, make up your fucking mind.

    After a year of telling me there is nothing wrong with the MkIII and that its all in my head, they finally do something about it.

    I guess all the pros leaving Canon for Nikon finally made them think twice. Fuck them, glad I'm shooting Nikon now.

    I think it's going a little far calling the MkIII a shitty camera. By all accounts, it's still one of the best all around cameras you can buy. Yes, the AF tracking issues with servo and the way Canon handled it are disappointing, but by no means does that make it a shitty camera.

    Hopefully they drop even more.

    :werd: Get the bugs out of it and it'll be good to go.

    The AF recall is only for people who experience AF issues with off center focus points. Its not a blanket fix for all cameras.
