Hey guys, I'm the photo editor and a photojournalist for my high school paper. I absolutely love sports photography, and some people I talk to love my sports photos. I find that I'm severely limited when shooting with my XT which is only 3fps, and was toying with the idea of selling the XT and getting a used 1D (yes, the original) off ebay for about the same price. 8fps is far better than 3, and X-sync of 1/500 is better than whatever the XT is. The only issue (at least the only one I'm aware of) would be the 4mp sensor. I don't know if 4.15 would yield big enough pictures for things like non-sports photos, portraits, and vacation photos. Are there other disadvantages of the 1D compared to the XT? Someone help me out PLEASE! I was only 10 when the 1D came out! Thanks!
