I can see if you paid full retail of $8k back in early 2005 for the 1Ds Mark II and trying to keep it. If not, just get a new camera. There are tons of models available today for way cheaper that are much better. The technology has improved a lot and the tech has also become cheaper. After my sides stopped aching from laughing reading Canon's quote, I just thought to myself, what would I do? I'd probably go for a 6D as my studio camera.
