Just a thought on the Mark 3's auto-focus. Robgalbraith.com says that the 1d Mark2 handles fine but when comparing to the new body the new one is poor, so is it possible that the camera is not able to process the 10 exposures plus AF processes at the same time? I would be curious to see if the frame rate turned down to 8 frames like the mark 2n would improve the auto-focus due to having more processing time.
What do you think?
The 1D MK3 housed 2 Digit III processor inside the body so even at 10 fps it will perform better than previous 1D series which has only 1 previous generation processor.
The AF issue from what I heard or personal used, is not an universal issue, but it did happen to some portion of the camera in the market. I think it is more or less the calbration of the camera and its firmware issue. 1D MK3 body is indeed a good improvement over the last one, stiff still, and noticeable lighter. The only thing I will complain is that it was not supported by C1 Pro yet. And the wireless transmitter is too expensive.
