I've had people tell me they're pretty much the same, and others tell me the N is worth the extra. I've compared them spec wise but specs can only tell so much, a lot of it comes from real world experience, so I'll take it to you guys before I buy either one in a week, would you spend the extra on an "N"? Why/why not?

Bit of extra info: This is going to be my only camera body, and I'm on a tight budget, pretty much have JUST enough for the N with little or none to spare, whereas I'd have about $150 left to spend on some other goodies if I went with the non, but I don't really need any other goodies that I can think of.

I think it's a tough call as it mainly rides on personal preference. For me, the larger/better LCD screen is worth the extra money alone. Being able to see ISO settings in the viewfinder and being able to dictate what images (RAW or JPG) go to which card is a big plus, but not necessary. Others may not see the extra value in those upgrades.

When I bought my 1D Mark II at 1,500.00 the 1D Mark IIn was over 500.00 ,Now the difference is not so great and I would have got the IIn model just for the fact with being an updated model on a proven camera.

Another great point. Back then, the difference was pretty significant, but now sometimes the difference is only a 100-200 bucks. I often see IIn's going for 750-900 and II's for 650-800. So if you can hold out for a deal, you'll find overlap somewhere.

I shot with both today and if your a chimper you will see a big difference in the image in the rear display. (studio lighting both the same settings)

Both seam the same in image quality and function.But what sold me was the .5 inch bigger screen and display quality.
