While Canon’s speed-king EOS-1D Mark II N digital SLR offered effective improvements over its excellent predecessor, those improvements weren’t earthshaking. But the changes to the new EOS-1D Mark III are astounding, covering everything from resolution and image quality to shooting speed, dust elimination and live viewing. As you glance through them, keep in mind that these improvements all come at the same list price as the Mark II when it debuted: $4,499!
