Canon EOS 1D Mark II N

1d_mkii_n
Review Date: Nov 4, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Build quality, machine-gun frame rate, big LCD, focus performance.
Cons:
Price, LCD can be hard to see in sunlight, need a lot more memory cards!

I upgraded from a 10D to the 1DIIN and am extremely happy. The 10D was a capable camera in many situations but, for me, it lacked in a number of key areas: frame rate, focus speed, high ISO performance. The 1DIIN delivers in all of these areas.

This is a fantastic camera and has been worth the wait. It is superbly built and fires like a machine gun! Of course, that means that you need plenty of CF cards :-)

Whist the build quality is brilliant, this comes at the expense of weight. This is a heavy camera! Walking around with the 24-70L is pretty tiring; doing it with the 70-200L is down-right exhausting!

Thoroughly recommended!
