Quick couple questions for you users of the 1D Mark II... I came across an ad on here of a user willing to trade a 10/10 condition 1D Mark II for a 60D. I recently purchased a 60D and while I love the camera, I'm curious on a couple things about the 1D versus the 60D. The increased image sensor size making it a 1.3 crop will ultimately give me a few more mm's of usable coverage with lenses versus 1.6 crop correct? Also, adding an L series lens creates some sort of weather sealing with the system, from what I understand. And lastly, can anyone confirm the high ISO performance of the 1D, and who has also used the 6oD hopefully. I know I'm asking alot here but I want to make as informed of a decision as possible. :D

Don't know if I would do that trade straight out, if it was an N I would but for a 1D2 it might be a tad on the high side.

Yes you do get a bit more coverage and I personally love and prefer shooting the 1.3 crop factor.

For weather sealing, go back a few pages where I posted a photo of mine covered in mud :oops: :lol:

High ISO on the 1D2 I would say is usable to 1600. Comparing to the 60D, I would say the 60D's ISO 4000 or so looks close to what 1600 is on the 1D2 so the 60D does have an advantage there for high ISO shooting. For lower ISO stuff, there really isn't a difference that will be visible unless you're pixel peeing like crazy.

do these have underexposure issues or is it even an issue?

with EC at 0, in Tv (havent used anything but Tv and M)..it always underexposes by 2 or more stops, it looks okay on screen but when pulled off.. they are pretty dark

Do you have some examples you could post with the EXIF intact ?
What metering mode are you using ? If you use spot metering, things can be tricky and sometimes not give you what you might expect.

I always try to overexpose by 1 stop at least. At 0, it does seem dark to me as well. But I had to do the same thing on my 50D before I got the 1D2.

Usually it's pretty spot on for me, sometimes I add +1/3rd-2/3rds if I'm shooting HAMSTTR.

On my 1D2n i leave EC at 0 most of the time whereas when i had my 50D i left it at +2/3 almost all of the time. This leaves me to believe the metering is more accurate on the 1D or perhaps the metering on my 50D needs to be recalibrated(if there's ever such a thing)

The exposure make look ok on the LCD but once viewed on the monitor its noticeably dark.

i think mines def underexposing, i did tests today but i tossed em.. sorry

metered light with a sekonic l308s and took about 5 shots in varous areas of light and shade.. the histograms were all to the left on every image using the settings the light meter gave me.. 40D is spot on

how do you go about correcting this when shooting in M? just always shoot 1-2 stops + than what the light meter says? how annoying, is this something that can be calibrated at canon?

I wonder if it might have to do with a custom function. There's one regarding what kind of focusing screen you have and if you have it set to the wrong one it'll throw your metering off.
