I decided the new pro level cameras were just too expensive for me right now so I turned to the used market. I picked up this 1D Mark II on eBay for only $521. It's only one model newer than the one I have but has double the pixels and the same auto-focus performance. It was important to me to find one with a low shutter count. This one only has 11,280 photos taken on it, compared to my 1D classic which is now at 88,000.
