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: 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: 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!
Summary: I purchased this camera in March 2012, from Adorama through ebay. I was amazed with the heaviness of this piece of equipment,it's solidly built.I use the L lens with this camera which produces some of the most beautiful photos imaginable (24-70;135mm;17-40;and 80-200mm).The 1d Mark II is also fast and perfect as a sports camera when using the 135mm lens.
