For you canon 1Ds owners I'm going to buy another body soon and wonder what the other $4000 is buying me. Other than 4000 more pixels. I do studio work and rarely print anything over 16 X 20s and they are usally on canvas. Any insite would be a great help.

It buys you more sophisticated auto-focus, including the ability to auto-focus on a lens with a widest aperture of f8 (5D is limited to f5.6) - such as an f4 lens + 2x teleconverter.

It buys you a built-in portrait grip (extra $ on a 5D).

It buys you part of the way to CPS membership (need two 1-series bodies).

It buys you the ability to write photos to both a CF card and an SD card simultaneously for backup.

It buys you a really sore neck (the 1Ds Mk II weighs about double the 5D)

However, I wouldn't buy a 1Ds Mark II (unless second-hand) - I'd hang on another half year and get a 1Ds Mark III instead - judging by the 1D Mark III it should have a stack of awesome improvements, including rather more than 4Mpixel over the 5D.

I'm using a 5D right now, but I intend to get a 1Ds Mark III as soon as possible.

FWIW

The 1D Mark III is only 10 mp. What is CPS? Not heard anything about a 1Ds III. Where did you hear this?

Yes - but the III has quite the image quality at higher iso's... For your stated use the 5D would be it I think if you wanted something better then your 20D.

However, both are probably overkill given you don't really need high iso/low-light use and you don't need high resolution. A 20D or 30D are going to give you what you need.

The 5D can autofocus with lenses which have a maximum aperture of f5.6 or larger. The 1D and 1Ds families can autofocus with lenses which have a maximum aperture of f8 or larger (eg: f6.3).

You may not have any lenses with a maximum aperture of f8, but if you put a 2x teleconverter onto an f4 lens you have a combination with a maximum aperture of f8.

The 1Ds Mark III has not been announced by Canon, but there is rampant speculation about what it will feature. Most of the features on the 1D Mark III are expected (not necessarily two Digic III chips, though), plus some extras that would be expected on a 1Ds family camera. Almost certainly more pixels (general speculation is 22Mpixel, but I've heard suggestions from 21Mpixel to 30Mpixel), probably 4 to 5 fps, etc.

The 1Ds Mark III is expected to be announced in the second half of 2007.
