which is completely useless, the difference isn't significant (only an
increase of 300% or more would count as significant).

So it has essentially the same chip.

You can probably throw the 1D off the roof of a car onto a pillow and it may
still work, you can only throw the 5D off the hood onto that same pillow and
hope it still works.

For the rest, the 1D may have better lightmeters, AF system, CF write
interface, etc. etc.

Plus it's a more effective penis extender because it's more expensive,
something I notice is extremely important to a lot of people.
