    So i've been looking at some used EOS 1d Mark II and i've noticed the bodies are pretty cheap. between 700-1000 on ebay. You think it would be something worth to buy? Currently right now i'm using a 350d

    Most of the legit ebay auctions for the 1DMKII are ending between $2900-$3400. There is a multitude of scam auctions that list the price around $700-1000 and tell you it's "fixed price sale" you must email some [email protected] for more details. The auction always ends early with 0 bids because of an "error listing". Stick with your 350D my friend, and save your money for a less obvious scam.

    Example:

    Legit: Sold for $3000
    http://cgi.ebay.com/CANON-EOS-1D-Mark-MK-II-BODY-ONLY-2500-SHOTS_W0QQitemZ7595473176QQcategoryZ43454QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    Not-Legit: Advertised for $700 - seller ends "because of an error" - there are dozens of these types of auctions on ebay.

    If people can get used 1D MK2 in decent conditions for $1000, then I can't see why people will even consider the 20D/30D and I would've switched to Canon already.

    its a hell of a camera, but don't buy from ebay

    what about it?


    they are two completely different cameras. the 1DII is better at higher ISOs, much faster and better AF

    the 1Ds is full frame, higher resolution

    Still a little greenish in the pic with SLIGHT red hues....But I do know how to fix it now. The best help you could give someone...is to call them out on it.

    Thanks Dong

    Edit: What the fuck are those markings on the doors?
