Canon EOS 1Ds Mark II

1dsmarkii
Review Date: Nov 20, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $7,995.95 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: 1) Resolution 2) Faster write times 3) A tad smaller than the 1ds 4) DEFINITELY improved high ISO performance 5) Full frame 6) Improved LCD image quality.
Cons:
1) Cost....ridiculous (I have no one but me to blame...I fell for it) 2) NO HAND STRAP (for 8k I want a hand strap) 3) Did I mention the price?

The images on my screen look stunning. The 1600 iso images from the Mark II look like the 400 iso images from the 1DS.
It is an awesome piece of technology.... top of the line. Very intuitive. Is it worth $8000? Only if you're willing to spend it.

I'll add to this as I play with it more.
