Summary: I have used it for everything, from nature walks to weddings. I'm a hobbyist and just learning photography, and this camera has been easy to pick up and go. One thing I would caution against- I recently bought a third party battery replacement and the housing doesn't fit on it right. Only buy Canon batteries for this camera. The crack in the housing between the battery and camera is not worth the money you save with third parties.

Summary: I just purchased a 2nd EOS 1D Mk II with 528 actuations on it. Granted it's not the new state of the art but this camera just rocks. I bought this one after owning a Canon EOS 1D Mk I. The battery life on the old 1D was a petty 200 frames if I was lucky to get that. After upgrading to the 1D mk II, I was amazed at the battery life change. With a new NP-E3 battery, I was able to shoot most of the day without a battery swap.
The camera arrived on time and included everything that was in the ad.

Summary: I choose this rating because I am always cautious about purchasing pre owned item but the communication between myself and the seller was impressive! I have already recommended my photography friends to check out the cameras, lenses and all of the additional items available. I love the camera and it works perfectly!!!!
Summary: I bought this camera because I wanted a pro body at an inexpensive price. These cameras can be found for less than 400$ on Ebay these days. So far the pictures look pretty good despite me not having any great lenses. The camera only has 8 megapixels but that is plenty for normal pictures. This camera has tons of features and custom settings, most of which I do not know how to use yet. The camera can use sd or cf memory cards which is nice.
Summary: The item was perfectly described in the description except for one minor part. The viewfinder was loose and continually falls off. To me that's no big deal, but it would have been nice to know that ahead of time. Other than that the camera works. It had a few scratches on it like the product description warned. It came with a lot of batteries, so I never have to worry about it dying.
Summary: Camera came as advertised, with a little more bumps and bruises than I would have expected but nothing that affected picture quality of camera function whatsoever. For the price it was a homerun. This is a $4000 camera folks. And I got it for a fraction of that price. This camera is still held in high regard in the photography community even at 5 years old. Completely satisfied.
Summary: even know this item is over a couple of years old its still provides a great shot with fast shutter speeds. knowledge on how to use a slr is needed before purchasing one as there is no auto mode
Summary: I bought that camera because the old one of my boyfriend died (he had the same model ant really liked it and of course the newest models are way to expensive for now!!!). When we opened the box, the camera looked like a new one. No scratch, coming with a charger and a battery (that was already charged). My boyfriend very pleased with his birthday present and I'm very pleased with my purchase.
Summary: Great professional camera. Worth every penny and then some.I highly recommend you know how to handle a camera well before considering this purchase. It is very advanced and technically complicated. Enjoy!
