1ds MKII , 5d MKII or 1d MKIII
Mar 3, 2011


I am looking into upgrading one of my 50d's to a nicer body. I have the options of a 1dS MKII or a 1d MKIII or 5d MKII. Without getting to confused, can anyone give me advice on which way to go? Right now I have found:

1d MKIII locally for $1750 asking price.
1ds MKII used for 1800-1900
5d MKII new $2300

I know the specs difference and that the 1d MKIII is a 1.3 sensor. I know the 5D MKII does video, but that would be nice, but not a deal breaker.
