EOS 1D Mark II unbelievable deal

High praise to KEH for $429. It was labeled as exc + but it looks new, not a single mark. Not even a scratch on the lcd and no rubbed off paint on the hot shoe rails. The best part is the 3412 shutter count for a 9 year old camera, that was 100 less then my refurbished D800. Now to figure this beast out. I think I'm more excited about this purchase then my D800.

I shot with two of them as a photojournalist when they first came out. Good pro camera, though the resolution and low light performance are not up to today's standards. Still, they work great up to ISO 1600. Make sure you have the latest firmware, a fresh battery and enjoy!

If you haven't shot with a 1D series body before, you are in for a treat.

Congrats on the new to you camera.

Some info links are in a reply I made to another new 1D MkII poster some months back

The latest firmware is v1.2.6 which allows the use of higher capacity memory cards

I had a EOS 1 35mm a few years ago and liked it so I thought I would try a 1D since I've never had a pro digital Canon before. Very glad I bought it. It has the latest firmware.
