Re: Walter--handheld problem

I had a 1Dsii for a few years but have a 1Dsiii. There was an overlap period.

IQ-wise, not a big if any signficicant difference.

Big difference is interface. 1Dsii is clunky in comparison, LCD too small, difficult to navigate, zoom in etc. BUT, if that is all you have, it's more than good enough for anything. A great camera.

I compared it to the 1Div, which I still have and the 1Div has a stop extra for the same noise. In other words 1Div at 1600 is the same as 1Dsii at 800. Overall I would judge the 1Dsii to be marginally sharper but that could be the effect of some noise..
