Adam Yeah I'm holding on to the the 30 1.4 it works great on my 30D and super fast, so focus I'm guessing will be sooooo nice on the 1DM2. Are you talking about the 10-20 siggy or Canon version with 1.4 TC?

I am very attached to mine as well...and also the 5Dc which i recently sold. These 2 bodies really offered IQ in a different world compared to modern day DSLRs.

Recently I've had no time to go out and shoot due to exams, and so I shoot stuff around and outside my house. Here's one simple photo...nothing special. But the image does say a lot about the IQ with respect to pixel-level sharpness, contrast, tonality and vibrance.

Shot with 50mm F/1.8 at wide open. Amazing in my opinion :)

I use UDMA cards in my 1D2, but they're only advantageous if you have a UDMA firewire 800 reader to take advantage of the speed. Any card from the last couple of years will be fast enough for the 1D2, but the advantage is in the upload speed to the computer.

I just picked up a Lenmar battery for my camera. I was hesitant because of what I've read, main concern being fitment.

I'm happy to report that the battery came in and fits perfectly! The only issue is pushing the battery in a couple of centimeters so that I can properly turn the latch. Once it was in and the latch turned...it was like having my original battery in.

The material of the battery (plastic shell) felt cheap ($30 battery) but that's fine considering it will be inside the camera.
