Review Date: Jun 30, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $7,500.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: IQ, file sizes, ergonomics, functionality
Cons:
None

MUCH LIGHTER than the 1dsII. Handles better, shoots better, performs better. Battery smokes the 1dsII. Files are cleaner, marginally bigger. 14-bit is a definite improvement. 1-2 stop ISO advantage. This camera is better than it's predecessor in every way. AF is much better as well. Live view (though I thought it was a gimmick) is extremely useful for manual focusing. The joystick is such an improvement over the stupid two-handed design of the Mark II. Menu's and presets are also easier to use, and you can actually see something on the screen. Again, this camera is better than it's predecessor in every way. If you can afford it, you simply can't buy a 1ds2 anymore.
