Just want to ask 1D owners what bag to fit 1D with 70-200 F2.8 mounted ? I ordered few bags including Kata 3in1 30 before find out it won't fit my 1D 2N with 70-200 F2.8II mounted. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I use a ThinkTank Retrospective 20. It's MADE for a 70-200 2.8 mounted to a body, but i've got a 300 f/4, and my 1D fits quite nicely in there.

I really wish I would have gotten this camera a long time ago.
I started with film many years ago, switched to a Nikon Coolpix, then went to a 10D, then a 1Ds, then a 40D and now the 1D mkIIn.
I still have the 40D, but am considering getting rid of it and getting another 1D mkIIn.
All I can say is I simply love the 1D mkIIn.
For the money, it is a hard camera to beat !!!

I said, the other day:

One of my 1Dmk2 bodies is in Jamesburg for repair. The pin that locks the lens onto the mount became stuck in the "release" position.

If anyone is curious, the cost is $290 to fix it.

I also asked them to give me a shutter count while they had it on the bench. I asked them if they can tell if the shutter has been previously replaced, and she said no they cannot tell just be looking at it. She said they do "rest the counter" when a shutter is replaced though.

Followup:

I am so freaking ticked off at Canon service right now. Got the 1D2 back. On the invoice, they state that they fixed the locking pin, and they also state, "adjusted focus and exposure".

Uh oh.....I SHOULD have told them don't even freakin TOUCH the AF. This camera worked well as for AF previously. As does my other 1D2 and my 1DS. So this morning I thought I would test out the 'repaired' camera. Awful. Just plain awful. It is so far off on focusing the 70-200 and the 300 ( both shot wide open at 2.8 ) that it is not even usable. Put the other bodies on these two lenses....and they are still perfect.

So....lesson learned....if you have a body that is focusing correctly, and you send it in for other repairs tell them don't f-ing touch the focus.

Not that they will pay any attention to it....it said right on the work order to give me a shutter count, and they didn't bother to do that.
I dunno....not sure here, I'm thinking maybe I should try my luck with the service center in California instead of NJ. I'm gonna call Jamesburg in the morning and see what they say.

Thanks for letting me vent ! I still ain't happy....but I feel better ! LOL. I think.....

Awesome shot! I can't wait til we get some snow on the ground here. I hate it when it's cold and there's no snow on the ground.

:shock: Good grief!

I've got the same problem intermittently with my mkIIn. I was going to get it sorted but I'd have to get a mortgage.

Are they just fixing the pin or carrying out a full service to justify the cost?

george m w wrote in post #11371916 (external link)
That's just fixing the pin. I suspect there must be a fair bit of disassembly to get to it, based on the quoted price.

I sent mine in to Irvine for a sensor cleaning this summer. When I got it back, the first thing I did was go outside and shoot a f/22 shot of blue sky. I found dust all over it still. I called them and they sent me a label to ship it back. A week later, I had the camera returned, and free of any dust on the sensor.

Then, a week or so later, I went to Yellowstone. First time I used it since I got it back. Shutter dies within 20 shots. I called them again when I got back home and they fixed it (shipping included) for free!

My point, hopefully you get some good customer service like I did, and then fix it for free. It's still a huge inconvenience, but good service.

And thanks for this lesson for us...make sure to tell them not to touch the focus!

was wondering to all sports shooters out there...how is your AF configured? How many AF pts are you guys using?

I have mine configured for 9 AF pts(C. Fn 13 set to #3) along with C. Fn 11 set to #2 and C. Fn 17 set to #1. This combination allows me to scroll thru all 9 AF points very quickly on the thumb wheel like on the 50D and also provide 7 AF expansion points surrounding the selected point should the it momentarily lose track of my subject.

I'd like to take advantage of all 45 AF pts though...but i dont know how to without having to fiddle with both the thumbwheel and finger scroll.
