post some picks when you get a chance :-)
What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

Thank you for showing me that a wonderful affordable pro camera is a great way to enjoy this hobby. Here I am fussing about having to save up 3K for a DIII.  I could see having a great time with an older pro Canon.

The camera is just so much fun! I'm really surprised with the image quality I love it. I actually had 2 older 1D cameras recently. Last weekend I bought a 1Ds mark II from a pawn shop and sold it a day later for a good profit. I've never had a 1D camera before but I do love them now! I love the blue LCD lights so much more than orange. Also this is my first time with the apsh sensor and I really like it!

 speaking of the mkiii,  would you say there is anything lacking from the 1ds  that you really miss?  I love old tech too,  but I can't help but think you are romanticizing  exactly how great it is.

I assume you haven't used it, think about this camera when it came out it was the best! It's only 4mp but honestly I really like it. It's 12 years old but focuses faster and more accurately than my 5D2!! 8fps is awesome too! Of course my 5D2 is better at iso1600 than the 1d classic but still it's damn good! 1d series are seriously one hell of a camera! They feel different perform different they are just in a different league even 12 years old!

I haven't used any of the 1D line... but 12 years is an eternity in tech years.  I'd love to have a full frame backup that shoots 8 frames per that would be great for outdoor sports... but I can't wrap my head around 4 megapixels...

I'm glad your enjoying it... I'm not trying to rain on a parade... and I would seriously consider a 1D body... but I just can't see having that much of a disparity between bodies.  Though I guess it would by my daughter's camera... so it isn't that big of a deal... but she was holding my mkiii today and it looked every bit of 9 years old holding onto that thing.

The 1D is a great camera, I have had one for over eight years, but by today's standards it is vastly outclassed in every metric by many lower targeted bodies.

Anybody thinking of getting an old 1 series should only really look at the 1D MkIII for APSH, and the 1Ds MkII and MkIII for full frame, they are all good buys. However the 1D and 1Ds are very dated, no zoom review, no live view (nor in the MkII), very small LCD's, primitive menus, few mp's etc.

The 1D does have a couple of interesting quirks with the 1/1600 max shutter speed and the 1/500 sync speed but unless you need these and only 4MP, and that is very few believe me, then the later 1's are much better buys.

I was doing full on reportage and weddings (augmenting 1VHS's) with mine back in 2005/6 and whilst I still love some of the images I feel bad I can't do much with them with the RAW files being so small.

Here was one of my favourites at the time, some monks at Angkor Wat. Oh how I wish I could have taken that with a 1Ds MkIII  ;)
Never look down on anybody, unless you are helping them up.

You're not raining on my parade, though Mother Nature sure is doing a fine job here in MN. I bought the camera for collector purposes not for professional use. It's still a cool camera. I had a 1Ds II for a few days but it sold within an hour of putting it on eBay when I posted it. The 1Ds II was great too! Too bad the LCD screens are rubbish but its sure helping me to focus on shooting rather than look at the screen after every shot!

I stopped looking at the screen after I started shooting in raw.  Having said that, I started over saturating and over contrasting since I've been shooting in raw...
