Hi Guys
Would this be a good move for me to upgrade from 1DmkIIN to 1DsmkII for wedding work ? or its better to move to 1DmkIII ?
I was thinking with 1DsmkII, I got a FF sensor but smaller screen (I like bigger screen), and with 1DmkIII, I think its a better version of 1DmkIIN.
My complain about my N is that in darker situation (like reception), the AF is not that great, I like everything else about it, but the AF in darker situation

Thanks Guys..

I think the best way to go for AF in a dark reception hall is with an AF assist beam. If the 1DIIn can't focus, it's likely that it's also too dark for the 1DIII.

Anyway, I'd probably go for the 1DIII for the improved high ISO performance, but the 1DsII would also be an improvement over the 1DIIn.

What would keep you from using a flash or multiple flashes or an ST-E2 to help with focusing?

Yeah I have my 580 on the camera, and even with that AF assist, it is still kinda slow to focus.
I was using 2 cameras, sometime the N and 30D, and other time N and XTi, the 30D and XTi always focus faster, it was also kinda same situation/setting all the time, center focus point, and i have 580 on the camera.
