Wanting better autofocus for motorsport and equestrian work that I do occasionally, I decided to upgrade the 30D to a 1D MkII. Picked it up yesterday, 40K on it but body is mint and for the price I certainly am happy!

Now the all important DUCKSHOTS! (1st shot 100% crop) These are with the 70-200 2.8 IS @ ISO400. It's certainly a different looking noise to the 30D, and the files do require more of a sharpen I think so far.

Autofocus is everything I dreamed it would be. KILLER. These shots were basically a pray-n-spray just to see how it goes.. I can't put the thing down! 30D is on eBay needless to say.

Are the last two shot in continuous mode, or one after another, manually?

Last two are from a burst of continuous shots.

AI Servo i imagine?

Very very nice.

Thats pretty much the main thing of the 1D series, the AF, sometimes i feel like they are very purposely keeping the other cameras behind because they havent advanced the 1D enough.

Thanks!

Yeah AI Servo with centre point active and C.Fn 17-1 which also actives the points immediately surrounding the centre point.

I was happy with everything else about the 30D apart form the autofocus!

Awesome; there are times when I would love a 1D's AF.

Do the 1Ds and the 1D share the same AF?

I think so.?

Yeah, they do. 1Ds has bigger sensor/more pixels and costs a load more. 1D has faster frame rate and costs half as much. Ya picks yer priorities.
