It's here! My 1Ds MkII arrived today from Roberts Imaging. $7399 for an official USA warranty version.
I quickly unpacked it and installed the charged battery from my 1D MkII. I took a few shots of the new landscaping being installed at my new home. Not the best subject matter, but it quickly demonstrated the quality difference between the 16MP 1Ds images and the 8 MP images from the 1D.
In a word, WOW!!!!
I'm going to be listing my mint condition 1D MkII on ebay for $3,200. Any takers?
