I'm likely, but later in the year, probably next fall. I'll probably borrow one from CPS, along with the Series II 600mm lens and do some comparing with my 7D/500mm combo. I'm afraid it'll be a trade off between high-ISO performance and detail resolution (isn't it always) and I'll have to make a choice.

This clearly blows the 1D X into the weeds for my usage. It's not going to have the detail resolution of this camera and the Mk III looks to have enough high-ISO performance to satisfy me. Including the X's AF system in the MkIII is HUGE for me. That was the feature that I was Jonesing for in the X, but now I can get it for a lot less money and with better detail resolution.
