Hello all, i can buy a second hand 1dMKIIN, a year old but it has 50.000 pics on the counter....
Is it still interresting or is it "worn out"?
Asking price is about 2000 euro's....

50K on the shutter, no big deal. If everything else looks good go for it.

What about price? He's willing to talk about the price for the canon, and its 1 year old....

2000 euro is about 2733 dollar....
But new it was 3300 euro here or 4509 us dollar...
Our currency is strong i gues....

2000 euros sounds like a good price to me, that's about £1350 which is a good deal cheaper than secondhand N's are going for in the UK, 50k clicks is fine plenty of life left in it. I'd say go for it!

The 40D is probably a better camera...it will not have the ergo's of the 1D Mark IIn nor will it's AF be the match of the 1D Mark IIn, but you will get better IQ from the 40D, lower noise, anti-dust, nearly the same FPS, 14 bit, and bare in mind that the 1D Mark IIn is often too noisy at ISO 800+ even if exposed properly...I had two of these great cameras (1D Mark IIn) so I know.

Save your $$ ;-)a

I bought my mk2 @ 80K clicks for $1800 Can ($1600 US at the time), and other than clicks it was almost pristine. If 2000E is a decent price for a mk2N in Belgium, I would go for it. Personally I find ISO 800 excellent, and 1600 definitely usable if you over expose a bit and pull it back in RAW. But I try to keep it below ISO 800 because the IQ is still way better. And I can guarantee you'll fall in love with the ergonomics, handling, and AF.

I find the ISO performance of the MKII to be pretty much identical to the 30D and looking at the info we have available so far with regard to the ISO performance of the 40D I'm not seeing much (if any) improvement over the 30D so I don't buy your better IQ and lower noise arguement at this stage. I'm still waiting for a full review on DPReview or similar before making a final judgement though.
