Hello, I'm new to this forum. I've just ordered a "used" EOS-1D.

Question: Can I use my sigma 10-20 or my sigma 17-70 on this camera?

I know I might get some vignetting at the wide end, but the main thing is I want to avoid damaging my camera/lens by mounting them.

Any experience with these lenses?

Tried mine with a Tamron 17-50 with lots of vignetting right through the range and at every f-stop

Well, I got a Canon EOS-1D in E- minus condition for $300 at Adorama. So far, I've been able to shoot about 50 images. I've been limited because the battery supplied dies after about 25 images (complained to Adorama as well as ordered a new battery for $23).

I contacted Sigma and they said my APS-C lenses would fit on the D1 no problem but there might be vignetting.

My Sigma 17-70 vignettes out to about 20 mm. It's still usable out to 17mm but I have to crop maybe 5 percent of the image.

I tried my Sigma 10-20 which vignettes out to about 12mm. The APS-H sensor seems to really accentuate lens distortion so I'm not sure how overly usable the 10-20 will be.

The canon 70-200 F/4 lens works great with no vignetting (it's an EF lens). However a little too "telephoto" for a walk-around lens so I'm working with the Sigma 17-70 and the 70-200.

Took me a few hours to figure out the menus and buttons as they are a little different from my Canon 20D. However the step up to a "pro" body is quite rewarding. Already taken a couple of really good keepers coming of the APS-H sensor. Still training my wrist to handle the "heft" of the body though. After using this camera, it's difficult to get excited about my EOS-20D.

There is no question in my mind why the Canon EOS-1D became a "classic" as soon as it was delivered. Rock solid cam with great image quality.

I have experienced the dark "banding" associated with high ISO, low light images. I had to turn on the 2nd level of noise surpression which handles most of it.

I find the images don't need much post production. I tend to adjust the white balance by using the eye dropper adjustment and maybe slightly adjust the exposure by a quarter stop. I crop away any vignetting issues.

Love the color matrix settings! So much better than the Canon EOS-20D.

Anyways, so much for the rant. I would definitely recommend purchasing a used EOS-1D at these used prices. I find the photo quality picks up about 20 percent quality (subjective) in comparison to my Canon 20D (APS-C). I'm not convinced that packing more pixels on these APS-C cameras is doing much for quality. The APS-H sensor beats it hands down.

Wish I could afford a full frame, but don't have the budget for both the camera and the number of full frame lenses I would need to purchase (kind of wish I never bought EF-S lenses but stayed with EF but hindsight is 20-20). Will wait until the full frames drop to $300 used (lol). Feel sorry for the suckers that bought these cams at full MSRP!

I went from a 350D to a 1D classic and was forever smitten by the 1D series. From there to a 1D MII to a 7D, then a 5D/t2i combo to now owning a 1DS MIII. While other Canon bodies are nice, the 1D series are still in a league of their own and are practically ageless in the image quality they deliver.

Have fun with your 1D, they are still awesome bodies and will definitely make you think before buying any other body.

Well the other day i took my 1D and 1Ds to the track to take photos of classic and vintage motorcycles racing and decided half way through to switch bodies and use the 1ds for the action photos . I won't do that again talk about horses for corses ,95% of thee 1D photos were pin sharp the
1Ds was terrible at around 20% . both shot with an old EF 70-210 3.5-4.5 usm .
I will leave the 1Ds for the more static shots in future , the ones I took around the pits with a EF24-70 were great but the A1 servo isn't a patch on the 1D.

They must have corrected the focus tracking problem by the time the 1DS MIII came out because it nails either still or moving objects.

Adorama has offered to replace the battery on my Canon EOS-1D purchase! Way to go Adorama!

Still loving the EOS-1D!

SteveOD, sorry to hear about your EOS-1DS not taking good action shots.

One day I plan to upgrade to an EOS-1d?? full frame when they get down to about $300 used. Which would be the best full frame EOS-1D?? model to get?

I have a 1D, a 1D Mk II, and a 1D Mk III. I will always keep the old 1D just because it has a CMOS sensor and that is not around any more. It does some things better. :)
Skins tones are amazing from it. Mega pickles ain't the only thing!

Helen at Adorama, ROCKS, BTW!
