Once you get the 1D bug, it's hard to go back. ;) Enjoy your new gear man. I can't wait to see some images.

so true.. the action / sound of the shutter is magical. My other cam I have not touched since I got the MKIV

^^ YES! The shutter has a very satisfying sound to it.

Yeh man.

Here's a quick comparison between a 3200 5DII shot and a 6400 1DIV shot.

Ignore the focus etc. just look at the noise. (Yeah this is totally unscientific)

Exposure's a little different, but the noise difference is certainly apparent.

Man I so love this camera. I almost want to sell my 5DII to buy another one! :shock: But that would be super dumb... right?! ;)

Seriously though, I think this cam and the 5DII will compliment each other very well. I sorta want to get a grip for the 5DII now to make it feel a little more beefy like it's new brother. :D

'ndeed (the bigger camera: can't be without that hefty feel now).
You can always use your 5DII for its full frame though, no? I kind of miss full frame (had a 1DsMkIII). I used to have both the 1DMkIII and the 1DsMkIII.
Only the MkIV now for me.
Should there come out a nice full frame in the future - with the absolute exclusion of the 1DsMkIV, too much megapixels, large files, slower camera, ... - I'd consider it.

What's your feeling between the full frame and the crop?

Has it reached US $3,000 ?

Thanks, and just an FYI, the price of the 1DIV has come down a bit in the last 2 weeks or so.


Nikon/Fuji.
Gear is important but skills are very important :)

I used to have both the 1D MK III and 1Ds MK III. I really missed FF when I got rid of my 5DC. Since I'm not a speed/low light type shooter, I prefer FF. With that said, I'm in line for the next 1Ds IV. :)

From $36.9k to $35.9k (In Kinefoto Hong Kong).

This is Hong Kong dollars BTW.

That's about $4,730 USD --> $4,600 USD

Just over 2% price drop. Was hoping it would be more

I made a trip through Yellowstone national park over Memorial wekend. Rain and snow 90% of the time. The mkIV lived on the 600 f/4 IS the whole trip. I didn't notice any other mkIV's, but I wasn't looking too hard. I couldn't believe the long lens ratio of Canon to Nikon. 95% or more were Canon. I believe I saw 2 big Nikon lenses the whole trip. Here are a few shots with the 600 and the mkIV...

Do you have 2 register to get the 2 year warranty?

Not sure, I can't remember if I registered my Mark III and I managed to get all the warranty updates on that. Anyone else know?

Yes, I'm thinking the 5DII on a wide angle and a 1DIV on the longer lens would be a good idea. Then you could use a lower iso on the 5DII (lower SS is OK for wide angle) and one stop higher on the 1DIV (for the speed) and the shots would match nicely (in terms of noise).

I can't tell a huge difference for now. Then again, I've only tried the 1DIV with my 28 1.8 so far. Since the main difference is resolution/details and DOF (ignoring the crop factor for now), I think using a 5DII for landscapes (more resolution/detail) and portraits (DOF control) would be a good idea.

Yeah, well it's still in high demand. I was happy to save it though. :)
