Summary: Great old pro body that still churns out excellent photos. 8MP seems low to today's standards, but in reality, is still three times the resolution that 1080p is so it's perfectly fine for web media, and normal print (8x10, up to 14", etc).
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
