Canon EOS 1Ds

21Ds
Review Date: Mar 30, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $7,800.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Resolution, customizable functions
Cons:
Slow burst rate, max 1250 ISO, dust, price

No doubt about it...this is an expensive camera! The pluses are the full frame CMOS and resolution. The quality of the images is fantastic! Fortunately for Canon, there is no alternative (yet). The slow burst rates and 1250 max ISO may limit this camera’s use to more “controlled” environments. Otherwise, the camera performs great! One thing to consider…the 10D may be a better value (depending upon your need for pixels). The way things are going, you may be able to pick up both (at the same price) next year.

Pros: clear, reliable
Cons:

I have been using the lens for only a couple of months. It has yet to disappoint - images are clear, IS is great. This is lens is used in virtually every day of shooting. The alternative is the heavy and expensive 2.8. For the money, the lens is worth the investment!
