Took the 1DII out for some sports shots yesterday, they came out nice. However, I have a question for those of you who do sports with this body. There is a custom function (cant recall the name) that puts shutter priority over auto focus, so that even if focus isn't locked on to anything it will still take the shot. I thought this would be beneficial, however I found I had a lot of out of focus shots, and I'm thinking maybe I should turn off the C.Fn?

Nice, great use of lighting. The IQ of this cam never fails to surprise me when used properly.

I think the C.Fn you are talking about is C.Fn 21 (Drive speed priority AI Servo)?
Before disabling that function, try changing the tracking sensitivity in C.Fn 20. Usually if it's quick to change its lock, back the sensitivity off one notch (ie. Moderately slow instead of Standard). If you do that, it won't be so quick to change its lock on a subject. See if that works.

Tomorrow I'm getting my first 1D Mark II, great. I'm very excited about it.
What should I look for? Check for? Expect for?

Are you buying from an individual or a store? I'd take a lens if you are going to pick it up and check exposure accuracy, fire off a few bursts at high speed to make sure that works. If it's bright out, set it to 1/8000 and take a pic to see if you have any bands across the screen. Basically, just play around with it for a little while to see if everything works.
Either way individual or store, if they're honest, you shouldn't have a problem.

You are getting a great camera! Enjoy! :D

I'm buying from a particular (individual), camera is cheap (as low as 470us$ down here in Argentina) that's why I want to know what to check, shutter count is "unknown" by the owner. Who is the only previous owner.

Will check exposure, will try to burst and use high speed shutter in order to check if it's properly working.

I know I'm getting a great camera :)

HI everyone,

I have a bit of a dilemma - I'm close to buying a 1D MK2, that has 93,000 clicks on it, for £350 in UK money. The camera is in good condition apart from very slight damage on the bottom corner of the body.
The current owner has had no problems with this camera.

However, I already own a 7d and it's a fantastic camera for the sports photography I do.

I have always wanted a 1d body, but this 1D MK2, that I'm looking at, is all I can afford right now.

So, how does the 1D MK2 (8mp) measure up to the 7d (18mp) when it comes to sports photography. Would I be taking a step backwards compared to the 7d? Or would the results be equal or maybe even better?

Thank you in advance!

In Cole's note form as per my experience having owned a 7D, selling it, getting on the full frame boat, then just grabbing the 1DmkII for more sports stuff this is how I would break it down....

IQ is actually an improvement in my opinion, I REALLY hate 1.6x sensors colour reproduction and bokeh or blur in general.

Functionality is absolutely BALLS compared to 7D, and that will be your most significant difference you will notice. Two button functions are brutal and inefficient, the LCD screen is brutal, and the menus are pretty garbage as well.

With all that being said, I would personally take the 1DmkII over 7D any day because of this reason. If you know exactly what your doing when it comes to exposure, and don't need a 3" screen to be able to tell what your image looks like, get the 1DmkII as you will in my opinion prefer IQ. If you are generally someone who likes all the fancy creature comforts of the 7D....well you'll hate the 1D.

In the end the burst rate is the same, IQ is improved, and functionality/user comfort is decreased (Although I find the actually ergonomics of the 1D much nicer even compared to my old gripped 7D)


I guess that turned into a beyond coles notes explanation, but take it how you will, and always with a grain of salt as what it comes down to the end of the day is the preference of your shooting abilities.

Finally got it today.

With two batteries (1 is dead, I'm trying to refresh it)
And everything that came in the box.

Tested the burst and 1/8000 and everything seems to work just fine.

Quick Sapshot!

I'm pretty exited about shooting with this camera.
Feels great in hand.


Just checked and it has 98k clicks on it!
