Steve’s Digicams

The Mark II N is essentially Canon’s mid-life upgrade to its most popular pro dSLR, the EOS 1D Mark II. Although nearly identical in many ways to its predecessor, the Mark II incorporates a number of refinements in performance, usability and image processing. The bottom line is always image quality, and the Mark II N does not disappoint. Most pro’s will opt to shoot in RAW mode, using software tools to adjust for the desired degree of sharpness, saturation and contrast. But the Mark II also produces high-quality finished JPEG images courtesy of its Picture Styles. While image noise is noticeable at sensitivities over ISO 800, ISO 1600 and 3200 produce quite usable images. With its 8-megapixel imager, accurate autofocus system, precise metering system and robust performance, the Canon EOS-1D Mark II N is photographic tool that is unrivaled in the industry at the time of this test (October 2005).

Mark II images also have very little sharpening applied right out of the box. Some people may be put off by the resulting softness of the images, but I like this approach, because it allows you more control in applying your own sharpening after the fact. Because of its high resolution and superb image quality, the Mark II will demand a lot from your lenses. READ FULL REVIEW
