1Ds II vs 5DmkII (low ISO IQ only)
Dec 19, 2011

Hi All,

I primerely shoot 5DmkI + 135L (I use 70-200 & Sig50f1.4 along with 40D). I am looking to add another FF body. For my use 5DmkI does it all perfect. I just need an extra body as backup & should my 5D fail take over its position, since my 5D is already over 50K. My original idea was to wait for mkIII or equivalent that has clearer shadows at ISO100 (90% of the time I am shooting at ISO100) + bring some improvement to IQ (if that's possible). Given the current price of new 5DmkII, and also used mkIs for $800, it has me wanting for one..

Considering just ISO100 IQ, which one would you rate best 1DsII or 5DmkII - will either one produce files that are more pleasing than 5DmkI (more room for tweaking & still look good)?
