If noise and speed of use are important, then you *might* want to look elsewhere. Good low ISO noise and exceptional IQ for me, but gets noisy very quickly over 400ISO. I actually quite like the quality of the noise it produces as it's very fine and grain-like. It also responds well to noise reduction. Slow write times and buffer. One card slot.

Great camera but it requires a deal more patience than more modern gear I think. That said, I can't see me using my 40D much from now on :)


i´m using a EOS 1D MkI right now so also noisy and kinda old :D
but it´s fast, awesome AF-system provides with it and nice colors thanks to the ccd.
the 1Ds wouldn´t be as noisy as the 1D?!

Spacemunkie sums it up very well with that comment.
And those are some really nice shots on the beach there in NZ !

If you like/need speed for what you shoot, then yes, you're going to miss it. When I pick up my 1DS after using the 1D2, then the slower FPS and the slower write times are immediately noticible.
Battery life would be better with the 1DS. I say buy it, use both together for a while then sell the one you like the least.

Well, first of all, let me say that I do like the FF very, very much. However, having said that, the 1D2 crop factor is 1.3 ( which is unlike the 1.6 on the xxD and Reb series ) so the crop isn't as bad. I don't buy into the idea that crop "gives you reach"....to me, that's an excuse....a way of justifying a smaller sensor. Lenses give reach, not smaller sensors.....but oh boy....I'll probably start a firestorm with that comment.

Anyway, back on topic, I generally don't find the crop on the 1D2 "that limiting", if you know what I mean. If you came to me and said, "you have to give up one of these bodies....the FF or the Mk2", I would, without hesitation, give up the FF. The 1D2 is really awesome, but that probably says more about what I shoot that anything else.
If you are shooting subjects where you have time, and take time to set up shots, the the 1DS FF would make you, very, very happy.
If you have the money to have both cameras for a while, do it. Life's too short to agonize over this stuff endlessly.....just do it and move along. That's the only way to satisfy your curiosity and end the confusion.

ok thats a good text :) problem is....i do have the 1DMkI...so i´m thinking about trading the 1DMkI for the MkII and only have 1 body...or getting the 1Ds FF as a second body to the 1DmKI...

so ff is not so important like i thought...hmm

sounds like the 1D2 would be the better deal?!

Having a 1Ds Mk1 and a 1 Mark II is a great combo:D. In your case cupra_flo you got the 1D so all you need is the 1Ds;)

yeah but thinking of the better noise-performance and speed and iq of an 1D2 makes me think about trading the 1D...

So you would go for this combo?

1D MkI (already mine) and 1Ds MkI?

Do it! :D

I've also got a 40D. It's superb for speed and ease of use and has been a great servant. I think the crop factor is useful personally. Saves chopping images down and it exploits the strongest part of your lenses. I'll use it exclusively for action/sports etc (until I can be frivolous and get a 1DIII...).

If I had to choose one though, I'd stick the 40D in the bin in a heartbeat. The quality of the images the 1Ds produces blows the 40D away.

I have been looking for a second battery cover door for my 1D Mark II like the one that came with the 1Ds and here is the site if you need one.
