EOS 1D Mark II unbelievable deal
2

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.

Re: EOS 1D Mark II unbelievable deal

The 1 D Mark II is a really nice camera, I have a couple of bodies. I also have a newer model of the 1 D series, but I have no problem using this camera with the right light conditions.  I love the small file sizes, I have made 16x20 prints from this camera without any problems. Enjoy!

with only 3412 shutter, it's practically new.  Congrats... and have fun with it.

I wish it had a better LCD but the camera handles great for a very old camera. It's still very responsive and focuses pretty quickly.

How....I mean really....how can someone answer to a topic that is from Dec 2013?

A THREE year old topic?

What's the reason? To say something just to feel better? Boredom?

You guys are sooo funny!!!!
