Has anyone used both the Canon 1D Mark 2 N and the Canon 50D. I have the 50D which I use for daylight sport pics, generally never more than ISO 800. I find it pretty good at 6 fps but the AF is not that exact getting sometimes 1 OOF shot in a burst series of 5 or 6 shots. Although the 50D is a newer camera with supposedly better lack of noise at high ISO and more Megapixels it has 9 AF points whereas reviews have the 1D Mark 2 N way better AF with 45 AF points and 8.5 fps. What are they like in real world usage? Is the 1D noisy at high ISO? Is the older 1D Mark 2 N 8Mp vs newer 50D 15 Mp too much of a down grade as I do tend to crop into my pics a bit? Will I find the smaller LCD and older menu system / controls an issue?
What do you reckon?
