If you have not sold it already, how cheap is cheap ?

Eh..$900 bucks sound good? I'm upgrading next week so this is going toward that. It's got only a scrape/missing paint near the trash button due to my gf dropping my keys in my camera bag and me not noticing until I packed it up :rolleyes: looks like someone with a sharp fingernail thumbed it is all. I can get pics later if you want. :)

I posted this in another forum here, but thought I'd post it here too, since it was with the 1DS. My little buddy under the AlienBees lights with the 1DS, 85mm 1.8 lens.

The 1Ds isn't really my go-to camera for portraits because it runs purely on old, adapted manual focus lenses. Going manual focus while trying to catch expressions is much harder than with an AF camera. Having said that, it's only my 1Ds that has access to faster optics, whereas my other camera, a Fuji S5 Pro, uses a slower IS lens.

Some of these images were photographed under low light conditions with ISO 'full blast' at 1250. The image quality is still most excellent in my opinion, and the issue that people have with noise is just too far overblown. The 1Ds is certainly very, very old in digital terms and way obsolete. But it is a very fine tool nevertheless. They are going cheap, and those who choose to pick one up would be both fortunate and wise.

Holy Crap! That is clean as hell for 1250!!! Especially #1! I think I am going to hang onto mine and go with some L glass.

At the price of the 1Ds these days, you're not going to get a whole lot more even if you sold it. I mean, really...a FF sensor in a 1-Series body is most definitely worth much more than $900. Indeed you're better off getting some good glass to go with it. The 1Ds would be wonderful with fast glass but some of it is beyond the reach of the average Joe.

I think I am going to pick up a 16-35mm mkI and 24-70mm L this Friday. Though I wonder if I should just go with the 24-70 and 70-200mm f/2.8

Mike,
As I stated in my post up above earlier, I use the 24-70 and the 70-200 a lot on this camera. I was debating in my mind the 16-35 or the 17-40. I was lucky enough to be able to borrow a 16-35 from CPS for a day, and came away with the realization that for what I wanted a WA for, f/4 would be plenty fast. That sealed it: I bought the 17-40, and have not once regretted it.
And I'll state it again, the 24-70 is awesome on a FF.....and the 70-200 is just plain awesome no matter what you put it on.


regards, george w

Depends on what you shoot, I suppose. Getting the most expansive range of focal lengths in your bag would seem like a good idea in theory, but it would be good to see what you really need before buying. Based on the two picks you have, it would either be a 16-35mm or a 70-200mm and both are very different animals.

Personally I would be after a 24-70mm and 70-200mm lens, but if I had the cash to splash, I might actually pick a 35L, 85L and 100-400L. Those would suit my purposes, but not necessarily yours.

And one from the 35L:

I adore this camera! It's the only camera I've ever used where non-photographers have actually looked at the photos and mentioned how sharply defined everything seems and asked about the camera I use. I went back to edit a bunch of old stuff from various cameras recently and even the 40D isn't close in terms of IQ. Top purchase. Next decision is between a 7D and a used 1D3 to compliment it.... :)

I shoot cars, people, and landscapes mostly.

I hope to be able to add some shots this weekend as I picked up a 1Ds earlier this week. I haven't had time to really play with it, so far I've not done much more than connect it to my laptop and change some of the settings but to me the AF is significantly faster than my 5D and I like the 100% view as well as having the freedom of the larger AF selection area :D

Hey people...
I have a Mk1 :) Since I don't have a manual for it things are a little hit and miss...

Anyway, my question should be easy, do you need a aftermarket trigger system to run remote flashes, or does the camear have an internal one? As I said I dont have a manual for it, and I cant find it in the menu anywhere.
Google finds me all sorts of shizzle but not the answers I require!!

Thanks
Bruce.
