I would not dream of comparing the 5D mk2 with the ID, they are too different. Now ask about how the 5D mk2 compares with the 1Ds3 and we might be able to have a conversation.
The 5D2 as a number of strengths and weaknesses and these mainly revolve around whether its used in a photojournalists/sports tog role or in a studio/landscapist/fine art role. For the second it is a natural born winner, but it does struggle in the former role. Depends on the individuals style of photography mainly, or so it seems.
Given a well cared for used 1Ds3, then thats what I would personally choose, but I was very recently offered a "well-worn" example and decided to buy a new 5D2 instead. Financially they were about the same.
