The 5D Classic is worth maybe $600, the 1DS MK II goes for $1600 or more.  If you did not like it, you could sell and buy a new 5D MK II.

Hi Everyone,

I'm still thinking this one over!

I've heard that the 1Ds batteries can cause problems as they get older. Anyone experienced this?

I'm also thinking of swapping the 5Dc for a 5D mk2, but I guess that's a different debate!

The thrill of owning a 1ds mk2 is outweighing a 5d mk2 at the minute!

My only real concern is its low light capabilities. The 5dc barely cuts the mustard in dark wedding venues, will the 1ds mk2 be any better????

Thanks all

Rhys

The 5D Mark II in my opinion is a better overall camera than the 1Ds Mark II.  Personally I'd pick the 1D2 over the 5Dc, but not the 5D2.
