I have been wondering this as well, I don't really have an easy to access a 1D2 and 1D2n... is the 1D2n $400 better than the 1D2?

I didn't think so though a week or two after I got my Mark II, a Mark IIN went for $45 less than I'd paid! So there are good deals on the N as well.

i have to have the megapixels of a mark ii because of the size of pictures we produce... that's the biggest reason i haven't looked into a 1d classic, as i am sure it's a great camera!

the 1ds is an 11megapixel camera - it has more megapixels than the 1dmk2

Simple answer? No...

Same sensor, same performance, basically the same camera....with a slightly larger LCD and a slightly larger buffer...neither of which, IMO are with the additional money you pay for them.

my mistake.... i read it quickly and thought it said '1d', not '1ds'...
so, i have to say that this is a very good question, and i eagerly await the responses, as well.

if you know the right people, then you can get a 1dmk2n for not much, if any, more than a used 1dmk2... possibly even if you don't know the right people.

Whichever you eventually settle for, it's a better bet than the 30D. It's often said that once you use a camera from the 1D series, it's hard to go back. I can concur with this!!! :D


Enjoy your photography

Well please share with the class then...

Clean, low actuation 1DMKii's can be had all day long for 850-900 bucks. As of late, its RARE to see a MKiin go for less than 1100-1200 unless its been ridden hard.

Once you shoot with a pro body it will ruin you... you were warned! :D

There have been many occasions on which I have favored the 30Ds over the 1D IIs. I have two of each.

i just have friends who are photographers or assistants to photographers who have used the mkiin's as back-ups, so they have relatively low actuations, and the photographer sells them to the assistant for cheap or offers them up to friends for cheap (mark ii price). we're talking like 3 instances, not 10, and i happen to luck into one. also, on ebay one was sold last night for $1150, but it included 4- lexa pro 4gb 133x cards, 3 total batteries, and a shutter remote. it also had a new shutter with only 15k actuations. pretty sweet deal. i would have gone for it had i had the extra $250...
