Re: 1Ds Mark II vs 5D Mark II
In reply to Bill Johnston, Nov 27, 2009

I have been wrestling with the same question for some time. The price of new 5D mk II here is 2099 EUR and typical used 1Ds Mk II is 1899-1999 EUR.

Just half an hour ago I found one with 40k+ shutter actuations with 1499 EUR. I phoned to the dealer (the best in Finland IMHO) and asked some questions about the condition of the body. It seemed ok and I deared to by it without seeing it.

Most probably I would have bought a 1Ds Mk II anyhow, despite this bargain deal. I've had 1D Mk II for more than four years now, and I think 1 Ds Mk II is a great addition for landscapes and backup for weddings.
