!

You need some practice with your cameras. You focused on the plant area with the 1D2, which is far superior than the D70 - it's obvious.

And for the pot, well, you focused on it with the D70, and missed it with the 1D2.

bouch,

How many beers did you have between taking the 1Ds photo and the D70 one? ;-)

I think the D2X would be a great camera, especially with the 17-55 f/2.8G. But I am keeping my 1D2 and 20D for now.

Please keep us posted.

I was inclined to laugh with the crowd, but your portfolio pictures show that you do know your stuff. Perhaps you got a misaligned copy of the 1D that results in unsharp pictures. Test your lenses with other Canon cameras and see if that's the problem.

Hi

This won't go down well I'm sure, but I just returned my 1d Mk2 and decided to keep my Nikon D70 because the image quality coming from my D70 was superior.

I done many comparisons between the RAW file coming from the 2 cameras and the D70 won over the 1D for sharpness, contrast and detail most every time. Sure the 1D outperformed the D70 for speed etc, but at the end of the day if the image is not as good (even after adding sharpness in photoshop etc) I feel like I am downgrading and not upgrading!

It also depends on what monitor you view the image on. On different computers in my house, the images look strikingly different. On one monitor, the D70 image looks 'better', on the other, the Canon does.

I would add that if you are rreally going to "test" the 2 cameras against each other for things like sharpness, focus, etc.. You really need to mount them on a tripod and use a shutter release or the timer. If you are handholding you are testing, among other things, your handholding skills. Since the cameras are vastly different in size, shape, weight, etc. handholding could induce errors that aren't really giving a true picture of each cameras capability.

Dude...i think even the nikon fanboys would agree that the 1D photo is far better.

Martin nice portfolio. The jokes on you are undeserved.

BTW good thing your name is Martin Paul & not Paul Martin (who is now in deeper doodoo here in Canada than Tony Blair in the UK)...

I foresee a lot of canon equipment in the B&S forums because of this post!

All joking aside, you can't make a rational decision with images resized to a fraction of their original size. You should post some unresized crops--after you account for the exposure and focus differences mentioned earlier.

One of the previous posters had a good point, though. The 1D2 is far superior because of speed, ISO, and focus (not to mention construction, viewfinder, and 100 other things)--but not because it makes a "better-looking" image.
