This is the starting thread for issues concerning the 5D Mark II. I'd be very happy to hear from fellow 5DII owners. If you have any questions or tips about this body, I look forward to hearing from you here.
If you are thinking about buying one, what are the reasons for doing so? What puts you off? Are there any practical alternatives? Feel free to contribute to this thread!
I'm particularly interested in hearing from 5D owners thinking about upgrading to the Mk II or changing to something else. Why?
(BTW, this is an almost copy-and-paste of the 7D thread I've started because I also have one of those. For differences, read the thread that makes a comparison between them in this section.)
