I am looking to get either a used or refurbished 1d sometime since I got a sweet job and can get it in 2 weeks. What are the differences between the "non-n" and the "n"? And before the whole glass thing comes up, I already have a 24-105mm F4L IS and a 70-200mm F2.8L on the way.
Thanks
Nick

The 1D2N has a larger buffer, a bigger LCD screen, and less noise at higher ISOs.

Worth the extra money? Or should I just save up the extra 2 weeks pay for a MK III?

The Mark II N is proven. Does not have AF issues, which are very hit & miss on the MK III's. Yes you do have 1.5 Faster FPS, and 1.9 more total Megapixels, but beyond those two major feature increases, everything else comes down to preference. It also depends on your shooting style. Yes you may be able in 2 weeks time be able to afford a Mark III, but do you need it? Does it fit your skill level? Only you can decide if the N is worth more than the II. I have had both, and would preferably take another N over a II, if I was needing another body. But as I said, only you can decide which is the Best investment for you.

N also ends up with sharper pictures than the regular II does. Even Canon themselves say that. Id save the money and get an N for sure.

People say so sometimes, but I’ve personally never seen it proven. I’m not saying it’s not true, but I’ve usually seen people say it’s exactly the same - II vs IIn. :p

Mark IIn rocks!

Definitely an MK3!! Light years over previous models. AF issues are over and gone. Ignore the one or two naysayers. The MKII and N's are killer cameras, but the MK3 is truly 21st century stuff...

Mark IIn rocks!

I don't have alot of experience with the 1D2, only with the 1D2N. My comment on this was derived from Canon literature and reviews of the camera, etc. that I have read.

Mark IIN rocks, but Mark III rocks harder! :p

I own both the 1D2N and 1D3 and have used both extensively. Get the 1D3. It blows away the 1D2N or 1D2 in many ways.

1. IQ (particulary detail in dark areas)
2. Noise reduction at high ISOs
3. Frame rate
4. Buffer size
5. Size and weight
6. AF capabitlity
7. battery size and weight
8. Battery life
9. Battery charger size and life
10. Future resale value???
etc.
