5D MkII or 1Ds MkII?
Jul 10, 2012

I'm thinking of adding a FF body to compliment my 7D. The 5D MkIII is way too expensive as is the 1Ds MkIII. Which of the two MkII's would be the better to buy, the 5D II or 1Ds II? They can both be had for around the same $'s depending on condition. All my glass is Canon L so I'm set there for lenses. I would use my 7D for tele stuff and the FF for my wide lenses. I don't do sports but do airshow photos. Beyond that just general stuff. Any opinions on the two choices?
