    Do you shoot sports? No
    Do you shoot portraits? Yes

    I thought you were selling everything except your 30D and 24-70

    You are so wishy washy. Even moreso than me :rofl:

    And I could shoot motorsports, given that I had the right lens. I shoot everything my man.

    If I had the money, I'd be all over the 1DsII. Once you shoot with a 1 series, there's no turning back. Everything else feels like a toy.

    I don't take a camera with me unless I am out shooting portraits or something I could hang on my wall. I don't shoot for snapshots.

    As someone with a 1dsmk2, I'll tell you now that I've got on order a 5dmk2 :hs:

    Yeah having a full frame 1d is nice, but it's like having a 20inch cock, I'd rather a meaty 8 incher. :hsugh:

    Not sure yet, I could do with a backup but having a 1d as a backup just does not seem right :rofl: Might just keep 5d2 and G9 :dunno:

    i know im by myself on this one... But if you do everything, I would get a used 1dmkiii.

    It has the Clean High ISO of the 5dmkii, has the ruggedness of the 1d, and also has a better AF system then both (sub mirror fix withstanding), Has great colors and Dynamic range.

    only con i can see is the lack of a larger Sensor.

    Another vote for the 5DII. I fell like a 1DMKIII would be hard to find at a good price, it's still too new.

    5DII.

    IQ of the 5DII is leaps and bounds ahead of a 1DsMkII. Nobody cares about how your camera "feels" or "handles". People only care about what it produces.

    If Im to be honest though, Id tell you to get a 5D classic and a good lens. Better investment than just a 5DII IMO

    I'd go with 1DsII. That's my next body upgrade.
