    Well, that's a matter of opinion I guess. When it comes down to it,
    if you need it, then it doesnt matter what they charge for it!

    true...but if there is a cheaper alternative that gets the results you
    require...then it does matter (well to me it does!)
    Hmm lets see $10K vs <$3K for a 10D leaves $7K for other things....an easy
    choice for me.
    No point getting a Rolls Royce if a Holden Astra does the job if you get my
    meaning.

    And hey if $10K means nothing to you then good luck and please send a signed
    blank cheque to my address :-)

    fullframe = ultra wide, which the 10d cant do.

    Well it's only a negative if you want wide (well, 'normal' focal lengths)
    but if your taking sports and you have your 70-200 2.8 mm become a 112-320
    that's a good thing!

    But I think 11mp is a bit of overkill unless your getting some serious
    income from it.

    It's just a cropping with the 10D, you could easily do the same via
    photoshop.

    I wish my dslr was full frame, I'd prefer the cropping choice left to me.

    What's more a 1.6x Field of View Crop on a 1Ds = a ~6MP image, ie that of a
    D60/10D
     

    Exactly!

    Sorry Scotty,

    but I am not sure if you really know what the 1Ds is and or the 10D and to
    get back to out favourite car ogy
    the 1Ds is like the Hummer/4WD vs the hatchback car - the 1Ds goes
    everywhere, the 10D can only take you so far.

    10D is a fantastic
    camera and for the price it is a steale - there are good reasons for just
    buying the 10D, such as price, if that is an issue for you (it is to me) it
    is just that the two are just not in the same league.

    the 1Ds for ONLY $10k is a steal too!! but that was from the US, don't
    forget that and DI may or may not really have them in stock. Whatever you
    do, don't try out the 1Ds when you got the money in your pocked, cos you
    wont have them when you walk out (in your pocket that is :-))

    the 1Ds is sensational, it is everything the 10D is and more...something we
    all can dream about but only few are crazy enough to have.

    best regards

    Brenton, and when you have nowhere to step back to? :-) I suppose that is
    when you realise your 24-85 don't cut the mustard and you reach for your
    wide angle and you still only have half the image you want :-)

    no doubt you can do alot with less, but...

    Glen,

    that is something that would be missed, but the cropping in the 1Ds will
    make up for it, if you think about it when you shoot. But yes, the 1.6x FOV
    is something that comes in handy when you want the reach

    If you want ultra wide on a DSLR without spending the huge cash on a 1Ds and
    a 16-35, the only real solution is with a Nikon D100 and the 12-24mm lens
    from what I can tell.

    This is what it is all about . I have the 17-35 L lens and the results
    of the 'cropping' are an ongoing disappointment to me.
    The only other dslr cameras with full frame are the now extinct
    Contax-which is a real pity- and the Kodak 14n which , by the reviews
    I have read , is having serious problems with the images
