Hi everyone. I'm starting to think about what will be my next body. I'm hoping to move into pro work in the next few years so i'm trying to get myself some capable gear. Shooting my sisters wedding later in the year with a 5D mk1 w/24-70 f2.8L attached, and a 40D w/ 70-200f2.8L attached. I have a battery grip on the 5D so not fussed by the heft of going to a 1D body...
I would like another full frame body to use with the 70-200 for weddings sometime next year, and my choices are:
- Canon 5D mk2 @ $2800 new
- Canon 1Ds mk2 @ $2500 secondhand
- a second Canon 5D mk1 @ $1000 secondhand
Now, I love the IQ from my 5D but I loathe the AF. It's adequate for most stuff but swapping from the 5D to the 40D i'm continually stunned at the speed of the 40D by comparison.
Anyone here have/had a 1Ds mk2? Thoughts? I would expect great IQ and probably faster AF than the 5D but the 2" screen has me second guessing things...
