I've been thinking about either updating my 1DMK11n to a 1DMK1V, but with the 5DMK111 know able to shoot at 6 FPS and having everything I think I need to cover what I shoot, Land - Sea scapes and my sons sports, would that be a better way to go?
If I update the 1DMK11n to a 1DMK1V and keep my 50D? This way I have a back up body. I have dedicated APS-C lenses for the 50D, and obviously all my EF lenses will fit either body.
Not sure as to the usefulness of the 1DMK1V with land - sea scapes though. This has normally been the realm of the 5DMK1/2/3 bodies. I do believe the 1D would do this without any concerns though.
The 5DMK111 looks to cover everything, sure need a battery grip for portrait mode sport shooting, the AF I'm guessing shouldn't be a worry, but Bryan Carnathan states it can be cumbersome to get used to in sports situations, and in AI Servo mode. The 1DMk1V wins here.
I do like the feel of a 1D body and have grown used to the controls. So this is another tick in the box for me.
Things I'd like to keep/inherit,
- Live view
- at least a FPS rate, or close to that of the 1DMK11n I have.
- Fast/Accurate AF
- Better ISO capabilities
Side By Side
1DMK1V - 16 Mg APS-H
5DMK11 - 22.3 Mg FF CMOS
1DMK1V - 100 - 102400 ISO
5DMK111 - 50 - 102400 ISO Expanded
IDMK1V - 45 Point AF
5DMK111 - 61 Point AF with up to 41 + type
1DMK1V - 10 FPS
5DMK111 - 6 FPS
Both have 1080 HD recording, which I will probably never use, but nice to have I guess.
Is anybody using the 5DMK111 for sport, or have they used it and how did you find it?
I guess I'm leaning toward the 1DMK1V, I can't convince myself that the 5DMK111 will do what I want in sports shooting. All the other features of the 5DMK111 sound fantastic.
Thanks in advance.
