1D MkII with 60k actuations arriving in my mailbox today or tomorrow! It's going to be interesting to compare it to my 1D Classic.

Agreed! That's unbelievable, you must be some sort of Jedi.

Does anyone use any off-brand wide-angles?

I use a Tokina 11-16 2.8 and it has very high quality on any body, crop or full frame .. you need to apply some exposure comp and there is some vignetting at the wider focal length settings but outside of those two issues the lens performs well. There are a few threads on this here with examples of files taken with the Tolina and MK2.

I've never shot with the IS version, but the non-is is a great combo with mine. Have you shot with both? Do you see a big difference other than the IS?? Great shots btw. Any contrast in the last one?

^ Hey Richard... I actually have shot with both... I started off with the "non-IS" version shooting weddings, e-sessions, event photography, and portraiture work... Optically, the "non-IS" model was fantastic... Sharp wide open and more so when I stopped it down a bit... My issue/problems came with my wedding captures... Since most indoor church lighting isn't up-to-par and flash photography is usually forbidden during the ceremony, my keepers were low... Add the fact that you're trying to keep your hand/arm steady while holding 8lbs of gear to get the shot... And it didn't help that I wasn't the most steady of people... YIKES!!! I would chimp 3-4 shots with hopes that one of them was a good... I'm sure I could've bumped up the ISO to get better shutter speeds, but I didn't want to be stuck doing post production to fix the noise and such...

So I returned the "non-IS" version and repurchased the "IS" model... In a nutshell, I would estimate my keeper rate jumped from 35% to 85%... To me, that's a big difference... I don't have to worry to much about keeping it steady as I know the "IS" will compensate for my human instability... It's been over two years (and 10+ weddings) since repurchasing the "IS" version and I'm so glad I did... Anyhoo, let me know if you have anymore questions... Take care...

- airbutchie :)

PS. As for the last duck shot, very little pp'ing done... There was a slight adjustment in contrast and I added some vignetting on top/bottom, but that's roughly about it... Converted from RAW to JPEG for web viewing... Thanks for asking...

The answer is it all depends on the lens used, the subject matter, your shooting technique, and to a lesser extent the ISO used.

My rule of thumb (and the industry printing standard) is 300 dpi for standard viewing distances so based on the maximum file size from a 1DMK2 of 3504 X 2336 pixels that equals a maximum print size of 8X12 inches.

But again refer to the conditions .. a photo with little detail such as a babies bottom shot will enlarge more than a subject with a lot of detail, such as a landscape or architectural photo. Also if you use high quality lenses their inherent better micro contrast and overall higher quality files will allow a higher degree of enlargement. And if you use a tripod or higher shutter speeds then camera shake will be kept to a minimum. Finally lower ISO files will print and enlarge more cleanly than higher ISO files.

But this is discussed a lot .. there is another active thread here where a professional photographer says he is happy with his 36 inch wide prints taken from a 30D so much depends on the standards you apply.


I appreciate the answer.. Now that my keeper rate has increased i have been printing a lot more.

Glad to hear the 17-40 is producing some great results. Lets see some examples!


The color that gets reproduced by this lens is just amazing!

What's a good aftermarket battery for the 1d2?

I'm looking for feedback from folks who have actually used a particular aftermarket battery with good results.

Thanks ;)

I've only used Lenmars myself and I've been happy with them since I picked up my 1D(almost 2 years ago). Never had an issue with the seal on them not fitting properly and I've had them in the rain and rinsed off dust and salt water spray plenty of times.
