EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Next purchase?

BY the Way, my 70-200 focuses much faster with the 1D series 11.1V system than the 5D or 70D 7.2V system.  Even my old 1D3 focused faster than the 5D3 I had on CPS loan

I shot this with a 1D Mark IV and a 70-200 f/2.8 IS from the sidelines on manual 1250 f/4 Auto ISO.  I'd like a 200-400 too but I have to get the best with the gear I can afford.  Can you get closer to what you are shooting?  Come out of the stands to the sidelines

I have shot the 1Dx and know what it can do but it's not worth the premium IMO especially when I scored a 24K actuation 1D4 for $1500.  Maybe if the 1Dx had 24MP+ or priced around $3500, but not now.

Anybody check out his web site?

Find this....

DPPDLL.dll

That file was erased or corrupted and it is needed by every Canon software you want to run.  Download the latest full version of DPP from the Canon site (you will need your 70D S/N) and reinstall it.

One or two ISO stops higher and I get the same shot will keep me happy if I get the extra crop reach.  I will wait and see.  It looks like I can get a 1D4, 7D2, and 5D3 for less than the price of a 1Dx and sell off my 5D2 and 70D.  So if the 7D2 can do that, I will get one then sell my 5D2 and 70D to get the 5D3 or whatever is coming down the line

I finally upgraded my III to a IV and this shot is from a night game tonight.  This was shot with a 70-200 IS at 1250, f/4, ISO4000.  It is a jpeg out of the camera and just cropped and unprocessed.

I wonder if the 7D Mark II will give me a shot better than this

This is my favorite from my first ballet shoot.

I thought I'd share some shots from my first ballet shoot ever with you.  Handheld, no tripod.  Shooting by the seat of my pants

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Pricing advice on a used 1D Mark IV

I figured KEH B&H and Adorama would buy it used from the guy for less than $1500 so I offered and got it for $1500.  I get to use if for 2 months before the 7D2 ships.  I started saving up to get a used 1D4 a year ago and finally got to $3500 for a body so it looks like I can get the 7D2 later too.  :-)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Pricing advice on a used 1D Mark IV

Now that the 7D2 has surfaced, I am mulling over a purchase of a used 1D Mark IV.  The body looks to be an 8+, no scratches on the LCD, and just got serviced by CPS with a shutter count of 24,600.It has one battery and the newer LC-E4N charger.  What would be a good fair price for a local cash transaction?

Consider the 6D with the 24-70 f/4 or the upcoming less expensive 24-105 STM which will be wider than your crop 17-50

Seriously, it would have been much cheaper and easier for me to upgrade to the 7DII.


So, in your specific case, the 7DII beats the D750.

The D750 fully addresses my concerns. With a modern FF sensor and an advanced AF system, it's a camera that can last me for years. Thus, the higher prices tag becomes justifiable for me.

Its appeal to me, though, is limited - and the D750 wins.

Not that I'll be switching to Nikon right away. But it's very nice to know that  there's a very appealing FF camera out there with specs that are tailored to my needs, basically.

Seriously, there is a camera tailor-made for you and you won't make the jump?  Honestly, what are you waiting for?  It's like saying you found a Heidi Klum body double but you're waiting for something better in a different color dress.  Just make the jump to the Nikon D750 and the NR board!
