I'm considering picking up a 1d II (or N would be even better) to take with me on longer motorcycle trips. I do a fair amount of off pavement riding and have been looking for a good quality , durable DSLR. For the price this seems very hard to beat. Am I headed in the right direction? 1D II for @ $500 or can any of you think of a more durable camera with this level of IQ?

I use mine every day! I have no idea of the shutter count, and don't really care. If you dont crop, or do so sparingly, you will love the IQ. It's heavy, and coupled with a 24-105, it to me is the ultimate walk (ride) around rig.

Awesome, that's kinda what I was thinking. A lot of my motorcycle pics include the scene around the bike so wide angle is perfect. Just picked up a 1d II N from another member on this site. 60k actuations and in great shape. Should be here next week and I cant wait!

Hello everyone
What do you think about the 1D mk2n? I'm thinking of this to use as a backup camera besides my 70D?
I found one in very good condition, it comes with two batteries, charger, strap. Equipped with brand new eyepiece. Freshly cleaned sensor, mirror and focusing screen / prism. Shutter count 90k. For 300$? Is it worth it?

I think for that price it is a good deal with all that accessories.

i think your 70d will become the backup once you start shooting with this bad boy, it happened to me

$ 300?? That is a give away. Over here a II N is at least twice that much!

I am the opposite I've been gravitating to the 70D than my II N but I say this because I think my II N needs service. I think its focusing needs to recalibrate. :)

just picked up this marvelous machine. Having used the 5dmk2 and mk3 for a while now I must say the technical shortcomings of this camera make it such a fun piece of iconic Canon history.
