Got an 1D classic - any tips?

Managed to get a really good condition 1D classic. This thing feels so good and the images it produces look really different. Came with 2 batteries, DC coupler, charger, cables ,original box, etc. Has Cost me $130.

Any tips/advices you want to give me? Have noticed that shadows can't be recovered easily. It will show banding. I guess the way to go is to ETTR. My 85mm f/1.2L II is surprisingly accurate at f/1.2 but more tests will need to be done. On the 6D had to AFMA at +10.

It feels solid. It is a Wonderful camera. This thing makes you want to go out shoot.

Thanks
