Re: Just went from 1DsII to 5DII

Should you buy the 1ds mark 2, make sure it comes with the dc adapter. The mark 2 still uses the old ni-mh batteries and they may play up a bit. Do not bother with the expensive Canon batteries, go online and you could find suitable third party batteries that last longer and do not need to be calibrated as they do not have the memory chip. I shoot occasionally with the 1ds (2002 vintage) and I love it despite the quirky menus. Still, if I were you I'd buy the 5d2 because of the video function, you are a videographer and you will always ask yourself what if...
Happy choosing!
