I know there are 1,000 threads of this type but I have a very specific choice about which I'd like the informed opinions of you people.
On a lark I bought 1 1D Mk 2 (well used) last November. I seriously enjoyed it BUT, being well used, it died about a month ago so basically I got a 3 month rental for $400.00 LOL.
Anyway, I bought a used 1D Mk 2 N from Adorama but, unfortunately, it has to go back since the AF isn't functioning properly. No problem there, Adorama sent me an RMA form and return label within 6 minutes of my speaking with Customer Service.
I really did fall in love with the 1D series but I'm also considering a 70D (likely through Canon Loyalty). Obviously the used 1D series will be 50-60% of the price of a 70D and I don't care a whit about video, which I can do with my T3i if really necessary. However, I'm curious about the real life performance of the 70D and the technological differences with the older 1D Mk 2.
Opinions anyone? Anyone familiar with real life on both cameras??
It's my decision and I won't blame anyone else if I screw up. I would just appreciate the consult.
