Just a question. Is the 1DsMKII better than the 5DC? The 1DsMKII is just few hundred dollars more on the secondhand market and I want a solid camera that can stand rain, snow and cold. But also have a quick autofocus and excellent IQ.

Is the 1DsMKII better than the 5DC for this?

Yes, the weather sealing of the 1D models is better than the 5D models and the 45 point AF is much faster and reliable.
