I'm really pleased with the dynamic range, accuracy and depth of color from my 1Ds II. Canon simply got it right with this camera.

I use a calibrated Dell 2408WFP at home that is quite good. But while it's brighter and sharper, I like the 24" CRT Sony FW900 I have at work better because the colors and black levels are more accurate and natural.

Interesting. I've read some good reviews here on POTN, about another Dell monitor on the cheap. I think it was a 22" but can't remember the model number. I'll search for it later.

I haven't even begun to research, but, when time/money comes, I will start looking into a new, more powerful rig.

Nice pics, up top. That second one is cool! Completely didn't know what to expect when I started to see the bokeh. ;)

Although I don't use it as much as I used to, my 1dsMk.II is the workhorse and the base of my gear. Lenses come and go for me but I love this body.


people will always try to stop you doing the right thing if it is unconventional
Full frame and some primes.

It's a rarity that my 1Ds2 poses for its little brother (1D2N)... One in b/w and one in color...

For sure!

Though I'm wondering how AB got the camera to sit up-right? Mine flops over with the 85L on it!

Cheers!

someone offers to sell me a comb (canon mark II 1ds / canon EF 2.8 28-70 mm L lens) for $3000. Is this a good deal?

Assuming everything works and isn't too beat up, hell yes! Excellent deal! ;)

Did you miss it is a 28-70 and not 24-70? It is the old version of the zoom. Lots of reports say it is sharper than the new version (not hard to do since it is less of a range).

But since 1DS2s can be had for $2100 you wouldn't want to put a $900 price on the old version of the lens since I think it goes for $550 or $600. Not such a great deal unless the 1DS2 is barely used. It might be hard to argue the person down in price unless they actively monitor the internet sale forums and see how quickly the price has dropped. A few months ago that would be a fine deal.

You're right! I did misread which lens it was! :oops:

Sorry guys.

I saw an ad for a 1D Mk11 for $1250. I'm new to this type of camera. I shoot dog agility, herding, in the ring movement and still shots. Is this a good buy and a good camera for this type of shooting.
Thanks all.

Hhehehehehhee... I folded up thick black paper and shoved it underneath the front battery compartment... It showed up a little bit, which I humbly "stamped" out in post processing... Hehehhehehe... That's the trick to keep it up-right...

Hiya and welcome to the wrong thread :) This is for the 1D *S* Mark II which is the slower, full-frame brother of the 1D Mark II.

Now welcome anyway because they're really close and lots of people in this thread own or have owned both cameras. The 1D Mark II would be excellent for dog agility; very good autofocus and 8 frames per second.

The problem is that $1250 is too high for that camera now. I've seen them for $800 recently! $900 is more like the going price for a decent condition one. Check the for sale forum here and on fredmiranda.com
