Need help in buying 1DMkIIn from eBay or get new 7D?
Nov 8, 2009


I am a casual shooter and currently own 5D Mark II. Very satisfied with image quality, but depressed about the AF speed. Yes, I know 5D2 is not meant for action, which is why I have decided to buy a used 1DMIIn from eBay or a new 7D from B&H.

Primary interest is AF speed and accuracy. Having 45 points will really help me freeze those lost opportunities (chasing my 1 year old daughter and BIF). I know 7D has a lot of bells and whistles, but as mentioned I don't care about MP count and I'm only worried about AF speed and accuracy.

My budget is between $1000 - $1250 for 1DMkIIn and of course $1699 for 7D.

What do you recommend? Any previous experience?

If 1DMkIIn is the one, then what should I be careful about on eBay? Any buying tip for this model is highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
