Review Date: May 13, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $3,999.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Professional feel, tons of features, lightning fast frame rate, long battery life, weatherproof, beautiful picture quality and much much more.
Cons:
Bundled software, audio recording (who needs that?), these I can live with.

I have owned this camera for about a week and I must say, this machine is rock solid! In addition to having a professional feel, the images are stunning! I am an airshow photographer and this new camera (in addition to my 20D) is sure to provide me with the best photos. In addition to the many features, learning to use this camera was easy. After reading the instruction manual (a must if you are unfamiliar with this camera) and charging the battery, I was shooting photos with ease. I photographed some airplane approaches using the 8.5 fps setting and all the photos came out crisp and clear with vibrant color. My air show debut with this beauty will be on May 20-21. This camera also gives you the option to slow the frame rate to 3 fps. On the down side, the bundled software is so-so. A required program that was needed to access the camera from a computer was not on the disc. The camera itself more than makes up for this tiny glitch. I must also say that Canon Support was very easy to get to (was talking to a rep in the U.S. within one minute) and directed me to a place on their website, where I could download the program. In my final analysis, I have made a wise investment and the 1D MKIIN (with my 4 "L" Lenses) is worth every cent. I highly recommend this camera to all (especially sports, aviation and wildlife photographers) who are serious about their photography.
