Any idea what the gping used rate for these cameras is? I'm seeing a wide swing, and was curious what is generally accepted to be normal.


[50D/BGE2] -> [580 EXII / Cactus V4] -> [28mm f/1.8EX] or [70-200mm f/4L] or [50mm f/1.4EX]

I paid $800 for mine at Adorama. Depending on condition, you're looking $800-$1300

I gave $415 for one without a charger and $645 for another with a charger. These are both plain 1D2 ( not the "N" version ). Both from KEH

Does anyone use the 35L on their 1d2? How do you like it?

I currently have a 40D with a few L lenses, I shoot mainly landscapes, architecture, wildlife, and aviation. I have been thinking of buying a used 1D MKII, what I am wondering is it how much of a improvement would it be for me to switch? Would it be worth it or? I am thinking yes it would be but I am looking for input from people who have maybe already done the switch and might have some advise for me.

Any input would be most appreciated.

I have a 50D and later on added the 1D2n to my arsenal. I still use both.

Using the 1D is a pretty steep learning curve..thankfully i met someone else who was very experienced with 1D bodies and i learned a lot from him.

What I noticed was better metering, better image sharpness SOOC, thinner DOF(the 1D behaves more like a FF instead of a 1.6X) and most significantly a better overall image colour profile. The 1d2n responds nicely to PP while colour adjustments on the 50D's files almost drove me crazy.

that is INCEPTION!

my English is not that good. So am not sure what you mean with INCEPTION!

Anyway, I was trying to get used to manual focusing the Leica lens when Jasmine decided that she wanted to play with the shutter release. To say the least I was very happy when I saw the results

Yes you have a bit of banding if you shoot high iso's alot then it needs looking at, for me who only shoots upto 1600iso I would leave it a while..

Before I had sent mine in I was getting visible banding beginning around ISO1000-1250 and a lot of my shooting is at 1600 so it had to go in ASAP. Took about 4 weeks if I remember right, sure glad I had a backup body to shoot during that time.

Thank you for all your responses on the banding issue. The owner of the camera took it back without even looking at the pictures I provided him of the banding issue. So I believe he knew about it when selling to me. It just didn't show up when I was testing it to make the purchase. Anyways, I had high hopes for it but now it looks like I'll keep my 1D2 and invest in better lenses instead.


I need to stay out of the buy/sell forum. It's burning a hole in the wallet...

I'm actaully waiting for a 40D right now :P although I've used them before and will say that they will nicely compliment each other.

The 1D is always well complimented by a smaller body. Which is any body other than a 1 series
