Ok, Im done debating with you. Yes, they are known for their crappy battery life, I had another 1d before this one. But 2 shots on one battery and they couldnt even tell when they tested it? What are you trying to argue, that I'm lying about the battery sucking? Im not advising you to not buy from them, I think theyre still a good seller but I, me, myself, nick WONT buy from them. Im glad you enjoy your 1d.... but Im sick of debating my extremely valid point.

Thank you Gseries for seeing my point.

great pics Nick!

and FWIW, I would be very annoyed to wait two weeks for a replacement battery. That would actually annoy me MORE than getting the dead battery! Because then I'd have to wait longer to even use the camera. To me something like that should be dealt with immediately. Like they should have send it by the two day post or something. It was their fault they didn't send a good battery so they should have jumped on it immediately to rectify it.


Even with the bad experiences of others, I'd still order from them, because I can return it with no problem. Now if I was relying on them for professional equipment and I got messed up, yeah, I would be leary of using them again since you can't rely on their used stuff 100%. So I understand where you're coming from with that aspect.


For people like me it's not so critical, tho their customer service could be better...

I think Adorama's service is known to be stellar. I have heard their Used dept. isn't up to the same grade. Also, 2 weeks for a replacement battery is kinda rediculous.

I can see why you wouldn't go with them again. I feel the same way about B&H, I just plain won't shop with them.

Despite the back-and-forth, I am looking forward to my 1D very much. I think it and my 1Ds will make one hell of a pair! (provided that it's not a DOA piece of crap)

Some recents from my 1D. Over the summer I'll hopefully pick up a mkII or even III. Clients asking to zoom in on the shot in camera, and me saying no is a bit embarrassing.

I also just picked up a 50 1.8 mk I. Old school lenses+1D=sex

exact problem that I'm having too, it's embarassing when you have to tell your clients/friends that you cant zoom into photos in the LCD :confused:

Hey I got a Question for all you 1D experts (and I honetly mean that!) SO here's my predicament. I am going to upgrade and buy a new camera. Most of my work is weddings so it does involve low light.
The rest is outdoor or studio not a lot of action. Having said that this is my predicament. Do I buy a 1D mark ii or 5D mark ii. The 1D Mark iii is NOT full frame uses the DIGIC III but has a 45 point AF with a 63 point exposure metering zone. The 5 D Mark ii IS full frame uses the DIGIC IV but only has 19 point AF and 35 point exposure metering zone. Or do I look to a 1ds mark iii (and buy used because you must own a small village to afford a new one). Which will give me better colored and sharper pictures in low light. I'm just thinking 45 vs 15 and 63 vs 35. Those are big differences. Thanks again!

5dmkII will blow the 1dmkII out of the water as far as shooting in lowlight goes.

I would probably go with the 5d or 1DS.

1DMII and 5D Classic + Lens of 24-70 and 70-200 would be a great combo.

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

Highly agree. For the price of a 5D Mark II you can have both a 1D Mark II and a 5D. Best of both worlds in a way. & the 24-70 + 70-200 are my most used lenses and would certainly be a good combo.

Have any of you guys who whinge about Adorama checked out www.keh.com? (external link)
It's hugely popular on other forums (skateperception, bmxperception). It's just the standard site that people go to, and recommend others to go to if they're looking for some old school kit.

Yeah, the problem is they've never had the 1D for $300. But on the other hand they probably have better quality control. ;)

I've bought more than 30 lenses (not Canon) from them and never had a bad experience. I also bought my 1D from them, paid about $500 and got what appears to be a brand new camera. Not a nick on it and it works flawlessly. KEH is the best, as far as I'm concerned.
