You won't get that with a 1D II. The 5D is full frame and the pixels are large, which will give you cleaner files with better IQ.
Yes,thats something else I meant to ask about. I had forgotten about the crop sensor with the 1D line.
Ive chewed on it for these past few days and have decided to not get the 1D. I like the 5D so much I think I will just continue to learn to use it to its full potencial and enjoy the hell out of it. So what,it doesnt do 8fps. But what it DOES do it does very well and thats what I like about it.
If I do get an itch I will pick up nicer glass - something to add to the just purchased 17-40...maybe another prime or two.
And thanks again Levina for your 'to-the-point' input,very helpful. If Im ever in your part of the world I will treat you to a beer
