Canon EOS 1D Mark II N

Review Date: Oct 12, 2011 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Fast AF system, build like a tank, weather sealing, IQ, separate image format on CF and SD cards at the same time
Cons:
Not very good in low light, weight, cumbersome duel button on setting adjustment

After 4 years of frustration with Canon’s AF system on the pro-consumer line of DSLR I decided to buy an EOS-1D series body. I got the 1D2N for under $1000 and when I first held it in my hand I knew I was holding something special and there’s no going back to the pro-consumer bodies.

I love the IQ, it was on par with the 5D, the quick AF system, love the way AF lock on the subject. When I view the images on the 2.5” screen, I was disappointed; I thought I might have going a dud. But when I loaded the images onto the PC, the picture I thought was soft was tack sharp. I gladly trade the weight of the camera for the AF system.

Sadly I ran into issue with the 1D2N in low light environment. On 2 occasions, using the camera w/ 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, I was unable to capture images due to the AF would not lock on the subjects, and lost the moments.

Great camera if you are looking to move up to pro-DSLR on the cheap, just be aware of the limitation in dim light situation.
