Canon 1D and 1Ds Mark III going for $3960 and $7300 shipped! is having a special weekend sale of Canon's two flagship dSLRs, the 1Ds Mark III and the 1D Mark III. OneCall's prices are very good, but they are only good for the weekend.

The speed demon known as the Canon 1D Mark III (Body Only) is currently on sale for $3961 with free 3-day FedEx shipping and handling. The lowest price among B&H Photo, Adorama and Amazon for this is currently $4050 and the highest is $4100, so the OneCall savings range from $89 to $139.

It also crosses the psychological price barrier of $4000, although the next body-only DSLRs below it in terms of price are the Canon 5D and Nikon D300, which are under $2000 at the moment, around $1900 and $1700 respectively. There a big gap there, Photokina are you going to fill it? :)

The flagship of the DSLR world, at least in terms of price and megapixels at the moment, the Canon 1Ds Mark III (Body Only) is offered by for $7300 with free 3-day FedEx shipping. The lowest price among Adorama, B&H Photo and Amazon is $7700, and if you look at the Amazon 3rd party sellers, 17th Street Photo has it at $7600. The highest is $8000. So the OneCall savings for the 1DsMk3 range from $300 to $700!

For a long but not comprehensive list of reviews of both the Canon 1D* Mark III DSLRs mentioned above, but also many other DSLRs be sure to check the DSLR Review Matrix. We are trying to come up with a more user-friendly way to present the DSLR Review Matrix, hopefully we can launch it before Photokina, otherwise, it will be pushed into the last quarter.
