Summary: This is an old FF SLR (2005) but still takes wonderful images with great details and fine grain at higher ISOs even 3200 (compared to current APS-C SLR). I love the images this camera produced... Things you should've noticed before buying this camera: the back LCD is low res (compared to current LCD display), and the user interface is dated. There is no AF microadjustment feature and the battery life is short.
Pros: Image quality (it's FULLL FRME), substantial hand grip
Cons: Poor LCD, body paint (getting shiny over time), heavy, manual ISO setting
This Canon Digital Camera is one of the clearest camera's around

Excerpt: Canon - EOS-5D Body Only Digital Camera:I thought it would be too bulky and heavy.Let alone too advanced for me to use.But when I used it for a little while it was the best camera I have had anything to do with.I recommend this camera for anyone who likes clear wonderful pictures.
Excerpt: I upgraded from a Canon 20D to the 5D and have not looked back. As a budding professional photographer, it was the best move I ever made. I can work at a higher ISO, which is essential for photographing weddings.
Excerpt: wow. the canon is by far the best camera ever. I love the zooming options and everything. omg this is a really good item. I really like it and its really cool. yada yada yada. why go on when really theres nothing else to say but its really good. cant wait for the next camera.
Excerpt: I have been using the Canon EOS 5d for a while and am very happy with it's quality. With the interchangeably of the lens, you can go as simple or extravagantly as you like. It shoots in JPeg or Raw formats, so you have the ability to print as large a print as you like. Add a tri pod and you can turn off the flash and use the dramatic existing light. It has pre set settings for portrait, speed, landscape, and macro shots.
I sold it for a better 1Ds II, but this has things it doesnt

Excerpt: Excellent full frame camera. i currently use the 1ds 2, because it has the better AF and build quality, but this is something else. Sometimes I wish i still had it so i could carry it around without being consciencious. Pros: lighter than 1Dsff sensorsmall batteriescheap accessoriesCons:not weather sealedcontrols are sometimes difficult to get toonly 3fps :(crappy AF
This camera is a dream. Can't wait for the next generation.
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I'm a professional photographer who has been shooting with a Canon 5D for 2 1/2 years. I can't live without this camera. It works so well in the dark and does not have much digital noise when shooting in low light. Its seen me through several wedding shoots and daily assignments at my newspaper. If you're thinking of buying one you might want to hold off a few more weeks because the next generation 5D Mark II is coming out.
Excerpt: I am an amateur landscape photographer (mylightscapes.com). I have owned this camera for almost 2 years now. I love it! I didn't have any problems and photo quality is superb. Highly recommend it for anyone. The new 5D mark II is going to be even better.
Excerpt: The camera quality is pretty good. The image is clear, and the scope is very wide. But it is kind of heavy when I carry both 5D and the external flash, especailly when I need carry to heavy tripode. Also I didn't get my rebate, which is so sad. overall, it is good.
