I don't like cats but I love this shot!

Haha... Thanks... I was putting presents under the tree when I looked down through the hole created by the branches and saw her staring at me.

Great shot. Looks like the transition from 60D to 1D has been successful.

Thanks... Yep... No complaints, just took me a minute to get used to the 2-buttons-at-a-time menus/settings.

Definitely different with 2 buttons. I had mine a while and still occasionally have to stop and think.

set up the C. Fn for 9pt AF by setting C. Fn 11 to '2' and C. Fn 13 to '3' and C. Fn 18 to '1'. I cant remember exactly the steps involved for registering the AF point for C. Fn 18 but I typically set it to the centre AF point. This will allow you to quickly change AF points in a ring-arrangement by turning the thumbwheel and switch back to the centre point by hitting the WB+/- button. If you shoot in manual mode with this configuration, you have to hold down the zoom-in button while turning the finger scroll to change the aperture value.

Best used with sports/action when you need to switch AF points fast and dont need access to the full 45pts

Zarray , thank you for the setup tips , I plan on trying them out this week. For the meantime , I terrorize the family cat. Even at 125% magnification the detail is amazing for a 7 year ago camera. I'm starting to see why people go for the 1D series. I do notice some moire in the whiskers , I have the sharpness set at 3 on the settings.

Well it looks like it's time for my 1D2 to get another home. I've decided to take a step back and shoot some more film (darn Leica bug).

On one final note, I've decided to give a mini (really small) review.

First things first. I love this body more than anything I've had before for photography that demands speed. I've shot 3 weddings with it, and if you know how to expose correctly it will always produce images worth publishing right up to iso 1600. The body is built like a tank. I can't get over how solid it feels. Every time I pick it up I feel as if I could slay a bear by simply dropping it on his head. Oh it's heavy, but not in a bad way. It's more like the heft you get from picking up something with quality. While I never used the 8fps for anything important, I was sure fun to play around with. Everyone seems to be hating on 1.3 crop. I just don't get this. It really is the best of both worlds. Portraits turn out amazing, and Ultrawide zooms have the needed reach that most are lacking. If you're in the market for a camera that just works, and works fast, this is the one for you. Only 8mp? Psh, i've made great 16x20 prints with this thing. More than anything, This camera has taught me to rely more on myself and my intuition than fancy gizmos and features.

Here's one last photo for the thread.

I totally agree. It truly is the best of both worlds. I wouldn't mind toying with a FF on the side, but I never want to go back to a 1.6 crop body.
