Excerpt: We bought this product mostly to do video, however I have been playing around with both photography and video stuff with this camera for the past 3 weeks. It takes stunningly clear pictures, and the video is great (for great audio, run your own recording gear alongside it...). The features that come with the 5D for the cost, while getting interchangeable lenses and a large sensor makes it all worth it. Be prepared to invest in the correct lenses that you need.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance
Excerpt: I use this camera for everything now that I have it. I used to shoot a mark ii and had a 6d as my back up. Now I plan on only using this body and am going to sell my other two bodies so I can have a mark iii as my back up body as well. I shoot surf, skate, weddings, lifestyle, and fashion. I have been a consumer and a advocate of canon for several years and this in my best investment yet!
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
