Opinion please Mark II or Mark IIN
Clay Carson, Photographer
Little Rock | Ar | USA | Posted: 5:12 PM on 03.18.08
->> I need to buy a camera. Is there a big advantage to the Mark IIN over the older model? I mainly shoot night sports. I have had Mark II's and they are satisfactory but I could spend a bit more if it were worth it. Thanks for the advice.

I have both and I have found the "N" has less noise. So my vote is the "N" as well.

->> Clay, if you already have the MKIIs, I wouldn't go with the upgrade. Save your cash. The noise level is a little better on the 'N'. Can you borrow one and test it?

->> Hey Clay,
I've got a MK II & an IIN
The differences have already been hit on... Better Noise larger LCD...
As far as battery life... I think it is about the same. I've never seen any difference.

I feel like the MK IIN is a better bet. Less noise and a little faster buffer.

->> Being able to simultaneously write RAW to one card and jpg to another is on my list of very significant features of the MKIIN.

->> Hey Clay, I have one of each and use them interchangeably. Personally, i have not noticed a difference in the noise level as mentioned above, but thats not to say there isn't one. One determining factor is how much do you edit in the camera? If you are typically working on deadline and make a habit of reviewing and tagging images (i.e. chimping), then the larger LCD would have a real value to you.

->> For me, I sold my MK II right away for the "N" when I heard you can change the name of your files straight from the camera.

The main advantage for me when it comes to sports is being able to label the files according to the quarter, half, inning, or what ever. For me, it makes a world of difference.

Do you find the N significantly sharper?

"->> Go with the N, unless you want to become very well versed in how to use unsharp mask.
Do you find the N significantly sharper?"

YES!!!

I wish I had an "N" everyday I shot with my MK II.

->> Shooting RAW I don't see a difference between the two files, but nearly everyone agrees that in-camera JPEGs are better with the N.

->> N without a doubt. I downgraded from an N to a II to generate some funds. Not at all happy with the results. Should have kept the N and been content. Couldn't find a suitable replacement for the N, so I made the plunge for a III. Big difference to me between the files of the 2 cameras.
