    I could use another body. I'm leaning towards another 5D but a 1Ds mark 1 just came on the market for $1300. Don't know how many shutter clicks. What would you do??

    That's what I did... now who wants my 5D?

    just kidding, I might sell the 5D after I get back from Paris, but I'll probably hold onto it.

    1ds MK1 is SLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWW. Had a friend buy one and sell it in less than a week for a 5D. Loves his 5D (and he was used to the 1D MKIIn at the time)

    If you don't mind waiting 4 seconds for an image preview perhaps it won't bother you. From what I understand the image quality from the 5D is superior. The 1Ds has better autofocus... I don't even remember it's FPS.

    Ohhh yeah, shitty battery life with the 1Ds.
