    Canon EOS 5D Mark II

    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 ISO Range of 100-6400 (expandable to ISO L: 50, H1: 12800 and H2: 25600), plus EOS technologies like Auto Lighting Optimizer and Peripheral Illumination Correction. It supports Live View shooting, Live View HD videos, and more. It can shoot up to 3.9 fps, has 9 AF points plus 6 AF assist points, a new 98% coverage viewfinder, a 3.0-inch Clear View LCD (920,000 dots/VGA) and a rugged build. Full-frame shooters rejoice!

    The EOS 5D Mark II features a huge, full-frame sensor. A 21.1-megapixel CMOS sensor delivers images of up to 5616 x 3744 pixels. And since it is full-frame, all lenses will deliver the angle of view they would on a 35mm camera without a conversion factor. This comes in handy especially when shooting with wide-angle lenses. For the flexibility to shoot in even the most dimly lit situations, the EOS 5D Mark II offers Canon’s highest ISO sensitivity to date, ranging from 100-6400 (expandable to ISO L: 50, H1: 12800 and H2: 25600). Thanks to improved noise reduction technologies, images shot even at highest sensitivity will be remarkably smooth.

    User review by maiaibing (DPReview forum)

    I got what I came for and its a great camera that will serve me well for the next 3-4 years unless Canon comes out with in-body IS in the meantime. My price point was 2.200 USD and its worth every penny of that.

    Head-2-Head Portrait/Fashion Shootout: Canon Mid-Range DSLRs (Canon EOS 5D MKII, Canon EOS 7D, Canon EOS 50D) by h2hreviews.com

    Sensor size was also a surprising issue. It was funny how much the big sensor of the 5D MII was actually a bit of an obstacle, both in focal length, depth of field and also just sheer file size. Between that and the physical size of the cameras, not to mention the great quality of all the files at a practical print size, well, we’re left with the old saying, use the right tool for the job. For the most part, the 5D MII felt a little bit like overkill, and honestly, the 50D was probably the most fun to shoot with. I’m not sure if, on having this assignment and having access to both cameras, I wouldn’t pick the 50D out of the bag as my first choice.

    Canon EOS 5D Mark II Review by photo.net

    The Canon EOS 5D MkII is Canon’s latest full frame DSLR. Externally it is very similar to the Canon EOS 5D. The only really obvious difference is the larger LCD screen and the chrome plated hotshoe vs. the black painted hotshoe of the 5D. Internally the EOS 5D MkII shows more differences, with the major hardware change being a 21.1MP sensor which replaces the 12.8MP sensor of the 5D.
