Oh that stinks. Hope they sort it quickly for you.

I'm only buying used bodies and lenses these days, and I know I'll get bit at some point, but over my "career," I know I'll net huge savings.

I've been without a camera for a couple of months now because of private issues, then suddenly i stumbled upon this.. a used 1D Mark IV in absolutely mint condition, it has barely been touched with no scratches anywhere on it. As a bonus it had only about 4000 exposures on the shutter. Price was just below 1000 euros. It had to be mine no matter what it takes, so i got it today but haven't had a chance to test it anywhere else but at home. I'm looking forward to test this puppy now. :)

Congrats! 4000 clicks is awesome. Mine is at 100,000 right now, but I haven't been shooting much. Work gets in the way. :-(

Congrats, Magnus. My second one is like that....but with 75k clicks on it.... not a blemish anywhere. The product photos looked good when I bought it.... but I was shocked to see how perfect it was.

Anyway, congrats again.

Thanks guys! i'm looking forward to giving it a spin in the coming days if the weather ever clears up.. anyways, from what i can tell now without shooting much with it, it feels a lot more like a baby 1DX than a 5D3, and from what little i've seen on my indoor shots it performs about the same. Yep i shot with the 1DX several times before so i can compare them.

I'll be back.. :)

I purchased mine from a local Minister who was building an addition on to his house for impending twins. I figured that was a safe purchase. Plus I was able to try it out at the time of sale.

Why wait until the weather clears up? The 1DMarkIV is made for "weather" ! :-)

That's true! but i want something a little bit more exciting than grey dull skies with rain falling from them infront of my lens. Hopefully i'll be able to shoot some birds tomorrow with the long lens. :)

I have been doing some testing this weekend and the camera seems to output a lot of out of focus/missed focus shots. That's not quite what i were expecting.. the hitrate has been about 15-25% only which is pretty awful to be honest. Perhaps i need to spend more time with it and test it on different subjects in different situations with different settings than what i have done so far, but from what i can gather now it's sadly underperforming. :(
