Why even think about it Glenn, Just get there, you can be an hour late for a traffic jam, I know what I rather be doing..!
Agreed! I'll email my tutor and let him know (or ask if he recommends that I be at the tute instead).

+1. A colleague of mine has a 5D and it just feels so different to a 1-series. An excellent camera no doubt but the 1D2 has certainly spoiled me on robustness and ergonomics.
It's spoiled me too. I think eventually I might buy a smaller body for portability but right now I love the 1D2 and I don't see the need for anything right now.

Just a quicky, I think one of the two batteries for my 1D2 is losing it's capability to hold charge. Anyone know where I can order a replacement (third party is fine). Ebay had some the last time I checked but they just seem so dodge unless someone's experience says otherwise.

I had a similar problem, in spite of doing a few full discharge-recharge cycles.
Glenn had a link which he posted and I ordered one from there, but a couple of weeks later, they contacted me and said they weren't happy with the quality of the units they had had shipped and I could wait, or get my money back. I chose the latter and ended up buying one from Richard (Blackshadow), which is working fine
The original does great service as a backup and I can get a good few hundred shots from it, but that's not enough on busy sport days, so the other was definitely required.
Would the link I gave you be this one? http://www.digitalrev.com …=1&time=1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9
I assume it is because that's the brand I've got for my 1D2 and it's the one I had for my 1D Classic and it works well. Ed, if you can get one of them, I'd go for it.
