Just won a 1D Mark IV on eBay. Put in a bid I didn't think would win considering the condition of the camera, but won! Just got it and charged up the (brand new, never opened) battery and took some test shots through a 100mm f/2.8 macro. Twice the pixel count is certainly a big jump. Think I'll need new (larger) CF cards The previous owner had a 1D3 prior to this camera and used those accessories, so everything except the body itself is brand new.
Hopefully, I'll get a chance to give it a better workout tomorrow with my 300mm f/2.8 II with and without the 2XIII. I have a series of shots I took with my 1D2 across the lake behind my house that I'll duplicate as closely as possible. Should be an interesting comparison.
Also want to work with the AI Servo auto focus to see what settings will work best for me when I shoot my sport (slalom water-skiing). It's always something of a challenge as the skier is accelerating, decelerating, and changing directions constantly.
Any tips or insights on the jump from the 2 to the 4 would be welcomed!
