Thanks! I see it compares quite well!

Cute subject you've got there!

As much as I like my Tamron 28-75, I'll have to consider that Tamron!

Thanks man. its a fun little lens. wouldnt be one that i left on the camera at all times or anything, but has its purpose. pretty damn sharp and even though the focus is loud it is pretty quick. able to keep up in servo with moving kids. only drawback is a weakness i noticed in low light, outter focus points especially around the 35mm range of that lens. hunts a lot in those situations. just learn its limitations and all is well.

Got bored and set this up. Speed light/umbrella infront of the glasses, speed light under the table bouncing off the wall, and a normal house lamp bouncing off the same wall. 1dmk2 w/ 17-40L

I am thinking about a 1d body because I really like taking pics in bad weather (snow, rain). There is only so much that my rebel will put up with, though so far it's been pretty good, I haven't really exposed it as much as I'd like to. The most I can afford is a 1d mark ii, maybe mark ii n if I stretch my budget. I'll also need a lens but that's another topic.

My questions are these. Thanks in advance for any replies.

First, is lack of the sensor cleaning feature a problem? (at least I don't think these bodies have it.). How hard is it to clean a sensor, and what are the chances that I'll damage it duringthe cleaning?

Second, assuming I don't need the camera for sports, is there a reason to go with mark ii n over mark ii?


Current: Canon 50 F1.4; Canon 100L F2.8 Macro (2 lenses, no bodies :confused:)
Sold: Canon T1i, Canon 17-55, Canon 70-200L F4; Tokina 11-16; Tamron 17-50; Canon 17-85
Wishlist: FF

Dan,
Nice shots. Both of them, but I especially like the second. Moody look to the sky, and the inclusion of the centerline of the road works better with the fact you have her feet in the photo. Nice use of the centerline element coming to the point of interest. My eye went from the sky down the line to her foot, then up to her face. Pretty girl. ( looks high maintenance.... LOL ! ).

Lack of sensor cleaning didn't mean anything to me. Cleaning the sensor in these cameras is not difficult. After you do it once, you will see it's not big deal. Just follow the steps and do it correctly, and you will see that the general fear surrounding it is largely overblown.

The added features on the "N" were not worth it to me considering the extra cost, so I have regular Mk2's. Read the tests of them and decide for yourself whether it's worth it to you personally. DP Review is a good place to research the specs and differences.

In today's market, I consider this model to be the current "bargain in DSLR's"

Tophotowa...you insert the image as you normally would, then you highlight all the text including the IMG tags inserted by the bulletin board, the clock on the globe with the link icon on it to specificy the target URL.

Can anyone recommend what I should look for specifically when buying a used MK2?
I know the shutter is rated at 250K, so thats something to watch, but what else?

Im trying to get one for a resonable price to replace my 20D

Thanks guys

Just choose one at a good price and go for it. In spite of what many may tell say, you really have no reliable way of knowing what the true shutter count is, unless you ( or someone you trust ) bought it new and kept track of it. It's fun to do things like look at the file with the apps that purport to tell you the count....but I wouldn't consider it to be more then entertainment value.
I recently got one of my 1DMk2 serviced, and I specifically asked them to give me the shutter count. It was noted on the work order when I got it back....and they still did not give me the number. So much for that !
Don't worry about it really. If you buy it at a reasonable cost, then you can always justify spending some money on repairs if it comes up. Or, if you buy from someone like KEH or Adorama, you can buy a mack warranty if you're into that kind of idea.
There is also a very good possibility that it will function just fine and not need service during the time you own it.
