It is a very good cam. I like it as the form and weight is very nice on my hand. It is fast and accurate. The 1V is of course better but I do not like to lug one heavy canon DLSR and a equally heavy 1V for shoot.

So the EOS 3 is for me. Performance is the same to me except the shutter sound is a bit loud. No use for the eye control for me though.

field performance wise, the 3 doesn't differ much from the 1v. The difference lies in that the 1v has downloadable shooting info. and other stuff that are useful once back home.

the 3 is horrendously awful for concerts as it has a hideous mirror slap sound. Great camera overall, but if you do stage photography, avoid the 3.

Budget?? :dunno: I thought the EOS 3 is considered a semi-pro model? It is almost at the top of the Canon film camera range. Or are you refering to EOS 30V?

i was 'upgrading' from EOS 300 last year and really wanted to get the EOS 3. However, since I do not use professional lab to print my photos, I 'need' viewfinder coverage of 90%. I also enticipate I would wear glasses someday ans the EOS 3 does not have dipotric adjustment due to the fact that it had ECF and at the time of production, Canon have not found a way to put ECF and dipotric adjutment on the same body --- until the EOS 30.

So, I chose the 30 instead. The money I saved bought me a used Sigma 15-30mm :)
