  • Conclusion: Canon EOS 5D professional SLR camera The Canon EOS 5D is positioned in between the popular semi-professional EOS 20D and the true professional working horses of the EOS-1D series. It nicely fills up the gab in this series and the EOS 5D does that more than convincing. At first the Canon EOS 5D appears to be an enhanced EOS 20D, but that does the Canon EOS 5D wrong.

Canon EOS 5D review - long term test

Camera Labs
1 May 2006
  • Summary: In our introduction we asked if the Canon EOS-5D was the holy grail of digital SLRs or the solution to a problem which no longer existed. After all, in the time it's taken for a full-frame body to become relatively affordable, the cropped digital SLR market has matured considerably. A number of very short focal length lenses designed for cropped sensors are now available, effectively addressing any concerns over extreme wide angle coverage.
  • Pros: Most affordable full-frame body yet, Very high resolution, Very low noise levels, Good build quality (similar to 20D)
  • Cons: High price premium for full-frame sensor, Full-frame coverage is unforgiving on optics, No voice memo or GPS option, No popup flash

Canon EOS 5D Review

Digitaltrends
10 January 2006
  • Excerpt: Let’s get it right on the table. The Canon EOS 5D is ridiculously expensive when compared to the 200-plus digital cameras currently available. At $3,299 for the body only, this D-SLR is for Porsche drivers who don’t mind being weighed down by a 2-pound plus camera. We’re reviewing it for a couple of reasons: first the camera offers major breakthroughs that eventually will trickle down to more mainstream models (read that as more affordable).
  • Pros: First "affordable" full frame D-SLR
  • Cons: Definition of "affordable" is for Bill Gates

  • Summary: The EOS 5D is Canon’s “entry-level” full frame SLR. It’s a stunning camera that has many advantages but it does require the very best lens in order to make the most of its features. Unless you’re printing up very large photos this camera could be a case of overkill. Consider the Nikon D200 or Canon EOS 30D instead.

EOS 5D review

Digital Arts
19 December 2005
  • Excerpt: Canon’s current range of digital SLRs set the benchmark against which all others are gauged, though their success has been largely based on proprietary CMOS sensor technology. As a result, the company has been in the unique position of offering photographers a choice of cameras with a mix of APS-sized and full-frame (35mm) sensors.
  • Pros: Canon’s full-frame CMOS sensor allows you to make use of the company’s extensive range of wide-angle lenses without any magnification factor.
  • Cons: The EOS 5D is the cheapest full-frame digital SLR, but at £1,958 it’s still pricey. There are few handling niggles too.

Canon EOS 5D

1 October 2005
  • Summary: Top features and functionality in a relatively portable camera for professionals.Canon's 12.8-megapixel EOS 5D is in a class by itself and likely to remain unique for some time. Combining the best features of the company's EOS-1Ds Mark II and EOS 20D models, it has a compact magnesium alloy case, stainless steel internal chassis and a mirror box of high-strength engineering plastic. Its control layout is very similar to the EOS 20D but its body is slightly bulkier. . .

TEST: Canon EOS 5D - bedre og bedre

PC World
28 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Canon EOS 5D er et speilreflekskamera som har satt tydelige spor etter seg. Kameraet, som nå er ute i tredje generasjon, har spilt en sentral rolle i prosessen med å gjøre fullformat-speilreflekser tilgjengelige for flere enn bare rendyrkede proff-fotografer.
  • Pros: Robust kamera; topp bildekvalitet i fullformat, særlig i RAW; god ergonomi; enormt tilbehørsomfang.
  • Cons: Bratt lærekurve; bare monomikrofon innebygd; litt stort og tungt (til tilfeldig fotografering).

Canon EOS 5D Review

LetsGoDigital
24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Ik ben ervan overtuigd dat de EOS 5D niet het eindpunt is van een periode, maar de start van een heel interessante tijd. Met betaalbare camera's die een hoge resolutie koppelen aan een voortreffelijke beeldkwaliteit. De Canon 5D heeft veel indruk op mij gemaakt en ik heb dan ook met grote tegenzin de EOS 5 weer afgeleverd bij Canon. De Canon 5D is meer dan aan te raden, een absolute must voor de Pro, maar ook voor diegene die een tree hoger wil, uitmuntend!
