Just got a wicked deal on this rig on the B&S forums. I'm used to the 5D2 and 7D, so this is a hell of a change UI wise. I've had a 1D3 a couple times, but this thing is different! I never liked the form factor of 1D's but I just couldn't pass up on this deal, lol....
I wanted to try this cam out as I didn't like how the 7D handled the 500/4 + 1.4xv2 in servo mode. I got about 70% keeper rate on slow moving targets, but for what I do (hobby), I figured why not try out the 2N.
A few questions as I didn't get a manual (I have downloaded the online 200 page book).
1. Can you set the P.Fn setting in the camera? According to the book, you can only do this with the software on the computer?
2. How do you set the flash sync to 1/250 in Aperture Priority? I can get it to 1/250 in M mode, but can't seem to figure it out in A mode.
3. How many images does your batteries last, just to get an idea.
4. How often do you clean your sensor? I had to use 5 sensor swabs as this sensor was DIRTY!! Still not 100% clean, but far better than it was.
So far, just trying out samples and running it through what I would put the 7D through in PP reveals that the files are really nice. At ISO800, the files clean up WAY easier than the 7D. The real test will come soon when I go outside and test it on the birdies.
