1d Mark II N vs 50d
« on: January 19, 2012, 03:28:50 PM »
Currently, I own a 50d and I want a sensor with less noise (specially for night time shooting)
I found a 1d Mark II N.  I know it's NOT a full frame sensor. 
How does this sensor compare to the 50d?
Should I consider a 5d classic instead?
Have read reviews but I want real world life experience feedback.
Any and all feedback appreciated.

Real world? Close enough..  I owned a 1d ii (not the N but regular mk.ii)) before I owned a 5D. Night and day difference. The 5D IQ is so much better.

I have 5dc and I love it for what it does.  I'd love a mark2 but the 5d suits me fine for my needs (weddings portraits night shots stars ect ect.)  You won't regret it.
5D3 + 16-35 + 85 + 135

5DC rocks for IQ in low light. Haven't used a 1DIIN, but have heard some grumbles about it.

I recently purchased a 5D classic after using a 40D for a few years.  The 5D's improvement in IQ vs. the 40D is larger than I expected it to be.  I'm a "value" shooter - don't have a ton of money to throw at photography.  For someone in a similar situation, I believe there is no better camera value right now than a used 5D unless you absolutely need blazing speed.

Totally agree - I bought a 5Dc to go with my 50D - and ended up the the 50D as the backup body. The 5D is about 1 stop faster than the 50D with the IQ much better.

I feel the best 'budget' pro kit might be:

5Dc
17-40L
70-200 f/4 (non IS)
50 f/1.4

That would produce very impressive images easily to 16x10 or A3 which even the 'top budget' would struggle to beat in normal circumstances.
