I’m going to share EOS-1D Mark II user guide on Today. You know the EOS-1D Mark II replaced the EOS-1D model and this product released in December 2001. It was designed to meet the rigorous demands of professional news, sports and studio photographers.

EOS-1D mark II entered into the markets on April 2004.  The price at the first time release is  about $ 4,499 in the USA and € 4,600 for Euro markets. To be sure that the current price in the market has gone down considerably.  It is about USD 345 used price at Amazon online store.
