I really hate to ask this, but I am considering upgrading to either a 1d mk II or a 40/50D as I just got a promotion at work and will have a few extra bills to spend. I currently have a 20D, which works very well but it leaves something to be desired.
I am really not needing more FPS, it would be nice, but not needed. I am also looking for better AF servo performance for fast moving people to full sized cars. I assume that the 1d is faster as it has it's own seperate processor for AF, but the 40/50D has the advantage in cross type points and low light compared to the 1D mk II(non N). The 40/50D also have the advantage in resolution and high ISO performance.
I figure that I can get a new 40D, grip, extra battery(giving me 4 total), another hand strap for the price of a used (25,000 articulations) 1Dmk II.
So, really it comes down to:
1D mk II
1 series build
1 series focus
It is a 1D
not so good high ISO compared to newer bodies
Better high ISO
Almost as fast
same size with grip
all the new gimicks
Not a 1D
More crop(could go either way with this one)
What do you all think that have both.
