Canon's flagship 1-series are their best, hardiest, toughest cameras; and the 1D Mark II was their sports & fast-action king when first released.

With a 1.25x crop sensor (compared to 35mm film) it was the perfect compromise between high-speed image processing - up to 8 frames per second - and relatively wide angles compared to the 1.6x DX / crop cameras they also make.

The 45-point autofocus system has arguably never been improved on in subsequent cameras; its ability to track a moving subject makes this a great body for sports and action. ISO range from 100-1600ISO (with a 'boost' option to 3200) makes it work well in dimly lit gyms; read more of the features at http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canoneos1dmkii/ if you like!

This particular example was bought new on release, and was my primary working camera for three years until the Mark III came out, at which point it became my backup. Now with a Mark IV in hand, it's time for this one to find a new home - so if you're after a super fast camera for high school or university sports, this is a great deal! Also a good option for shooting theatre and dance (as I've done) - again, tracking moving subjects in low light is its strong point, where newer consumer cameras would fail.

Includes all original packaging, and a spare battery as well. Frightening to think this was an $8400 camera when new - heck, the battery alone was $335!

No buy now price as I'd rather let the auction run; but feel free to ask any questions you might have!
