Basically, the differences are minor, though significant for some.
They include: a larger buffer, larger display, and new preset choices.

" EOS-1D Mark II N: an upgrade of the award winning EOS-1D Mark II. Still
featuring 8.2 Megapixel performance at 8.5 frames per second, the upgraded
camera has a higher performance buffer to deliver a 48 frame burst in JPEG
and 22 frame burst in RAW. LCD monitor size increases from 2.0" to a 2.5",
and dual CF and SD memory card slots provide for separate RAW and JPEG
recording. Colour Matrix and parameter settings are replaced with Canon's
new Picture Style - 6 pre-sets that simplify in-camera control over image
optimisation and processing. "

Yeah, looks like minor stuff to me. The "larger buffer" is from 20 to
22 RAW shots ... big deal. I think we've filled the buffer and had to
wait maybe twice in over 30,000 frames thus far. The "larger display"
isn't of much concern to me since I usually just check the histogram on
the display. The "new preset choices" seem to be for those who don't
want to shoot RAW and want their jpegs sharpened in-camera or those who
will use the Canon DPP software to pick up the presets, since I doubt
RSE and Capture One will pick these settings up as default starting
points, though I could be wrong ... maybe Photoshop will pick them up
as starting points though.

Not worth upgrading for, but nice additions for anyone buying the
camera for the first time.

....and a nice addition for those who are hoping for used 1D mkII prices to
drop. :)
