yeah my flash lives on my camera and never comes off when i'm shooting. hopefully i'll get a lock every time using the af assist. i know that the 1d's af is legendary, so i hope it'll compensate for the non hsm.
next stop for me will be for a spare lenmar and a filter....although i may be able to use a step down ring and an existing 77mm filter on the 82mm 24-70.
That's cool. I've got the 24/2.8 which is from the same generation as the 50/1.8 Mark I and the AF is pretty snappy on the 1D but even with the camera being so good, I do miss the speed of USM when I go from my 70-200L to the 24. Should be good though, I look forward to having the 24-70 focal length because 24 is plenty wide and to zoom will be awesome.

Just sent my payment. I should have my 1D in a few days, too long to wait though. It should be a nice upgrade from my XTi.
I upgraded from a 400D to a 1D classic and then went from both to my Mark II and it's been awesome! Have fun with it.
