After the 5Dc... what would you consider the best body under $1000 (used)?

Best for what?

60D for video and IQ
1Dmk2n for build, sports and action.

IQ mainly... 60D IQ better than 1D2?

at higher ISOs, sure, more a resolution factor though


40d + 50mm f1.8 MK I + my feet.

I think so. It's got the 7D sensor.

Need more info. Are you talking purely IQ, or do other features weigh in. For sports a 1DIIn seems a good way to go, for other applications perhaps the 60D..

Here is the DxOMark comparison of these two camera sensors: Give the page a few seconds to completely load, it is loading slowly for some reason.

Here is the color sensitivity at various ISO:

http://www.dxomark.com …/435|0/%28brand​2%29/Canon (external link)

As you can see, they are quite similar. They both got a score of 66 for IQ. However, the 60D has much higher resolution, the 1Dn2 has superior AF system, the 1Dn2 is weather sealed, and...well....the 60D is plastic.

I know these the tests on DxOMark are not 'perfect', but they are consistent.

Another option might be the 50D... it should cost a lot less than $1k but you get microfocus adjustment and good resolution (without it being excessive.) After market batteries are easy to obtain and (unlike the 1Dx series) are very inexpensive.

The cash you didn't spend - I'm guessing $400 - $450 - could go toward some first class glass.


Several cameras and more glass than I will admit to.

Some disposable 135 film camera in an underwater housing.

- You can take photos underwater
- You can pound nails with it - if it breaks, just buy another, because you have $998 dollars left to play with.

Seriously though, I was quite interested to see (I was looking at the DXOmark numbers again yesterday, by coincidence) that not all the 18mp sensor cameras rate equally. It makes a bit of sense in the case of the 7D due to the messianic properties of the Dual Digic IV, but other than that it really doesn't make a lot of sense. That the 1D only rates as high despite its much bigger sensor does illustrate the sensor gap still far outmatches the generational gap, but it's also an illustration that older technology is to be avoided. If you use a lot of wide angles and want them wide, it could be the better choice (assuming, wrongly in some cases of course, that wide angles means a bit less need for autofocus).

I would seriously consider the T3i instead of the 60D though. If you need those features, you'll appreciate them. But you don't buy a camera to hammer nails and you probably can get by alright with a smaller, dimmer viewfinder.

I would grab a 40D

I miss mine. Great camera. And you could get a 40D and a tammy 17-50 and have a great little set up for under $1000.00
