The Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III is made of stuff photography nuts dream off and has a price tag that makes it untouchable for many. This Pro camera was tested out by the lucky folks over at Cnet who give it an impressive 9 out of 10 rating.

With a whopping 21.1-megapixel resolution, the Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III was found to be truly "ground-breaking".  Image noise was minimum even at high ISOs and the live view shooting makes it extremely intuitive. The pro-level build-quality is another reason to give the camera additional brownie points.

An excerpt :

"The Canon 1Ds Mark III isn't for everyone. You really have to have a need for a lot of pixels to warrant buying one instead of the 1D Mark III, which offers very similar image quality, an extra stop of sensitivity, and double the burst speed for thousands fewer dollars. For my style of shooting, I'd opt for the 1D Mark III and spend the savings on some primo lenses. That shouldn't diminish the 1Ds Mark III in any way though. It is a unique imaging powerhouse and that can't be denied".
