To all those that have the hardcore original 1D, this post is for you. Speak up regarding why you love your 1D and the pros & cons of the body. There seems to be a strong following for this classic.

**EDIT BY CDS***

We have a growing number of *Fan clubs revolving around specific bodies.
I thought I'd make a collection of them, so we can find them and keep them organized (merge in new ones etc)


The Master list is here



Feel free to point us to other models or threads that could be merged.

The AF is excellent. The IQ is very good. You can shoot at 8.5 fps. I can only think of 2 cons. You need to get the shot framed right in the camera because there isn't much room for cropping. The 1d seems a little power hungry. Here is an example of the IQ.

I love mine for many reasons.

1.) the build
2.) the ergonomics
3.) the 1/16,000 shutter speed AND 8.5fps drive speed
5.) 1/500th sync speed
6.) the weatherproofing
7.) the weight (it doesn't feel like a cheap plastic toy)
8.) the resulting pictures are VERY sharp do to the lax AA filter
9.) the small file size of the 4MP images- easier and faster to work with
10.) the AF
11.) the accuracy of the metering

Here is my baby:

I still use mine all the time. It's still a very competent body despite being 4mp. Honestly, I probably will never sell it..

I've always been drawn to the 1D classic for my birding and casual event/sport shooting purposes, I'd love weather sealing and AF at f/8, and the smaller RAWs than my 5D will make processing faster and use less HD space.

And they're priced so well at the moment...hmm...it seems like it'd be such a good backup to my 5D, which I'll use for the money shots (don't take that the wrong way).

You evil POTNers are tempting me again. Why would you NOT buy one, is the question?

I love all of the features, but I mostly like the resulting photos produced by this camera... even at ISO 800, they look so nice.
