Thanks tfd888 I thought about that after I posted the question I had it at ISO 1600 and the Jpeg quality on L and at 10 I moved it down to 8 and now I get 38 shots on the buffer so that works for me now is there a big difference between having the Jpeg quality at 8 in stead of 10?

I found this chart on wikipedia after I read your question. It got me thinking the same thing. Is their really much difference? After looking at the chart, doesn't look like much really.

Depends what the intended use is, if you are going to be printing large prints you'll probably notice a big difference as you go bigger where as if you are using the photos for web size display (720px) you won't be able to see a thing.

I will see what sort of difference there is this weekend in the quality settings as I will be shooting another hockey game so I am thinking that I will shoot the first pd at quality 10 and the other 2 periods at 8 to see the difference

I was wondering if there is a lot of difference between the Mk ii and the Mk ii N? Thinking of maybe buying a Mk ii myself.

MkII vs. MkIIn:

I have 2 MkIIn's and think they are great! I have not used a MkII much (only when I was looking to pick up a second body), so I can't really comment on a MkII. IMHO, no matter which one you get, you will have one heck of a camera :D.

I've had both and prefer the IIn because of the larger screen. I didn't think it would make a difference when I just had the II, but for me it did. Performance wise, they're about the same. Larger buffer on the IIn, I believe. It also has the ability to write to CF card and simultaneously back up to SD card. Just my perspective, having used both extensively.

Thanks to you both. Nice to know that performance wise there's not really a difference. If I decide to buy a Mk ii I would prefer the N version, but they're not offered as much as the regular Mk ii.

Adorama currently has (3) Mk II's ranging from $564-$899, and (2) MkIIn's at $999 and $1099.

I paid $1050 for my first one 2 1/2 years ago, and it was in E+ condition. My second one I got a really good deal on...$450 in E- condition without a charger (I got really lucky on that deal :cool:)

Check your local camera shops, sometimes they are the best places to get gear.

Yes, the camera shops offer them sometimes. Apparently one had a Mk ii N sometime ago. Asked 795 euro and it came with one year warranty. So I'm hoping for something like that to come along again.
There are quite a few offered in the classifieds here though, but I don't know these people and I feel it's a bit risky.

just joined the fan club. i had no gear for quite some time, but it feels great to be back "in the game." this was my first choice (1d mark ii).

im going to try it with portraits. i know people say this is for sports, but i cant afford two bodies, and to be honest just having a camera is good enough for me (it sucked when i didnt have one.)

im making an attempt to attach an image below, w. 35mm f/2
