Canon 1D Mark III - not the photo-cycling dream machine yet

The Canon 1D Mark III looks like a sports photographer's dream machine (10fps, highlight protection, live preview), except Rob Galbraith is reporting that it can't autofocus in hot daylight -- quite useless for cycling photography. He's tested 2 production and 1 pre-production model and came up with the same results, and other photographers are checking in with the same problem

I have unrealistic aspirations of owning one of these Mark III beasts, but perhaps it's best I can pretend that I'm holding off my purchase until Canon investigates the problem further.
