  • Excerpt: There is something magical that happens when you pick up the new Canon 5D Mark II. Everything from eyeing the full-frame shot, to hitting the 3.9fps shutter, to finally seeing the image in all its glory on the crisp, sharp, full-framed 920,000 pixel LCD is awe inspiring.

Pop Photo
2 December 2009
  • Excerpt: Let's cut to the chase- the Canon EOS 5D Mark II does live up to its billing.

DP Review
16 November 2009
  • Summary: Although some aspects of the spec (AF, metering) are looking a little long in the tooth, the superb image quality and class-leading movie output should ensure the Mark II is as popular as its predecessor.
  • Pros: Excellent resolution, very close to Sony Alpha 900 (and essentially the same as EOS-1Ds Mark III), Very good High ISO performance, almost as good as Nikon D700 / D3, Wide range of ISO settings from 50 to 25600 (with 'ISO Expansion' enabled) and useful auto ISO setting, Finally offers selectable l...
  • Cons: AI Servo (continuous AF) not as good as EOS-1 series or Nikon D700, Default noise reduction quite heavy at anything over ISO 400 (can be turned down though), JPEG output a bit soft when viewed at 100%, Still pretty average automatic white balance in artificial light, No mass storage device USB mo...

Canon EOS 5D MkII Review.

15 November 2009
  • Summary: The EOS 5D Mk II had tough act to follow in the 5D and it has some tough competition with Nikon’s D700 and Sony’s Alpha 900 being its primary targets. However, it almost pulls it off, offering Alpha 900-alike resolution and D700-alike high ISO performance.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, good ergonomics and build, menu system, comprehensive feature set and customisability, Info panel, Responsive, HD Movie capture.
  • Cons: Excellent image quality, good ergonomics and build, menu system, comprehensive feature set and customisability, Info panel, Responsive, HD Movie capture.
