I have recently purchased a grand dinosaur (Canon 1D Classic). I purchased it as a learning tool for sports photography to accompany my two other bodies - 7D and 2ti. I have a 70-200 F4, 40 F2.8, 50 F1.8, 85 F1.8 and a Sigma 35 F1.4 not to mention two converters / extenders. I would like to know if there is anyone out there who still uses this classic camera for sports. Any advice would be appreciated as I shoot soccer, football and basketball. I do understand that the ID Classic is a poor performer indoors but my initial impressions are pleasing. I love the feel of it. Any shared war stories of the ID would be appreciated. I am thinking - is the purchase of the 1D MkII at step up or just a lateral movement for sports shooting?
