    I dunno, I was just looking around, because I'm about ready for a body upgrade... that 1ds looks mighty tempting.

    hahaha good luck finding a mkIII for that price. I'm comparing them only because they are $100 different in price. that's amazing. the 7d is pretty sick though, and I'm used to seeing my world through a crop sensor point of view now. I know what a 50mm FOV is going to look like before I put the camera to my face.

    The 1Ds tops out at around ISO 400 with decent image quality. You could get better,far better, image quality from a first generation EOS 5D. Not that it would be a body upgrade over much of anything, but the 5D's images would be nice.

    Personally, I don't think buying high-end used equipment from national web stores is a good idea--the prices are far too high at the very largest web outlets. The last 1Ds I saw for sale used at walk-in retail was about six months ago, and it was $1,100 or Best Offer...at a "real" brick and mortar store that is not visited by 10,000 people per day, the actual worth of an original 1Ds is not anywhere near $1599...not even close!

    hm that's interesting. Unfortunately, I've been hunting around for a camera store in my area, and the only one I know of is the Ritz in the mall. Everything else I have found online or remembered has closed down:(

    I'd definitely take the 7d.

    I'd suggest buying a copy of Shutterbug magazine and looking through it to get contact information for camera stores in secondary markets. There are still quite a few actual one, and two- and three-outlet camera stores spread all across the USA.

    As I said, the last 1Ds I saw was $1100 O.B.O. and that was six months ago....right now, today, Adorama has one in Excellent Minus shape and the price is $949 8068A020 Canon Eos-1ds Digital Slr Camera Body

    while B&H has one they have tagged at $1599 in merely 8+ shape????

    it is a game... here's the catch... both items have to be comparably priced!


    thanks for the heads up... I was actually just browsing the used body section at bh. they only have 1d's in their used canon section. I was hoping to see a couple of 50d's in there, which is what I will most likely get.
