Canon's update to the wildly popular full frame EOS 5D is here, and it's better than ever. The EOS 5D Mark II has a stunning 21.1-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor with DIGIC 4 Image Processor, a vast...More

The image quality is top of the line, and, being relatively low priced for a full frame camera (mine...was $2700, without a lens), just sweetens the deal.The only real problem about this camera is that it demands really high quality optics for the best results. I use my 50mm f/1.8 II lens for most pictures, but my pictures, while still looking great, would probably truly shine with lets say, a Canon 85mm f/1.2. Read more Less
### Ive had my 5d MkII for over 2 years now and it has served me very well. It's a very well built piece of kit and can take a lot of abuse.

The only negative points I can find are as stated: lack of built in flash (although it is a pro model), its weight and that it cant autofocus through live view. Read more Less
