Summary: I'm sure you've read through review after review, so I won't bore anyone with technical specs. I wanted to upgrade to a full frame and couldn't decide which to get. At the time the new 5D Mark III just came out and the 6D was on it's way. Amazon had this for a great price and I couldn't pass it up. Obviously you can't go wrong with this camera and I've been completely happy with it!
Summary: So far I have had a great experience with the Mark II. My only complaint would be that the focus for action photography could be better. I know this has been talked about a million times in other reviews so I will leave it alone.
Summary: I chose the 5d Mark2 for Video and photography duel purposes. It is my full-frame upgrade to what I previously worked with, the 60D. I am looking forward to great looking stills as well as beautiful visuals in my film production services. To Infinity and Beyond!
Summary: I received the battery today for my mark ii. I should have known you get what you pay for, but it was just a backup battery. The battery didn't work in the charger or in my camera. Completely useless and now I've got to scramble to get another battery.
Summary: I cannot say enough good things about this camera. As a former photographer getting back into the game, this camera blows me away. This will absolutely be all the camera most people will ever need. I have to qualify that by saying that I am primarily interested in landscape photography. The Mark III will be the better choice for sports, events or wildlife photographers. If you can afford it.
