Still a Great Camera!

Bike John, PhotoAlley.com
24 October 2008
  • Summary: The Canon 5D is still one of the best cameras available. The full frame sensor captures very high quality images. And a 12 mega pixel image is more than enough unless you are making wall size murals.
  • Pros: Comfortable Controls, Image quality, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

A Nikon convert

Art Lover, Amazon
28 February 2008
  • Summary: It was hard (and expensive) to go from Nikon to Canon, but worth it. I always felt my Nikon could be sharper. I went to Canon for the Lenses and I'm not disappointed, nor will you be. The D5 with the 24-105 L series lens is a beautiful setup, extremely versatile. This is not a compromise camera.

Everything *needed* in a high end DSLR

Garland Cary, PhotoAlley.com
1 October 2007
  • Summary: The 5D is the quintessential Canon SLR, offering a smart, functional mix of essential features and technologies – and little more. The reason to get this camera are its compact size, large bright viewfinder and full frame sensor, which make it the only game in town for folks need all these...
  • Pros: Compact Size, Crisp detailed images, Full Frame Sensor, Large bright viewfinder, Quiet
  • Cons: CF door feels cheap, Minimal viewfinder info, Quality control not great

Canon EOS 5D

blueshift, reviewed.com
14 September 2007
  • Conclusion: I find the official review on this web site suffers from the reviewer's personal bias (or animus), and fear it lacks objectivity.Two years after it's release, the 5D is the lowest cost full frame DSLR available - much lower than the prospective price of the recently announced D3.

Not for beginners, but...

Kieran J., PhotoAlley.com
19 August 2007
  • Summary: A very nice camera for the old time film photographer to get his/her feet wet in digital photography. Don't toss those EF wide angle lenses just yet...the full frame sensor lets your wide angle be wide angle. I have been into film for thirty years, so this is my first digital SLR.
  • Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Quiet, Small Lag Time, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Not sealed against dust

The perfect camera.... almost.

R. Thomas, Amazon
27 June 2007
  • Summary: This camera is a dream to work with in almost every way imaginable! The pictures are consistently amazing and true to what I intended to shoot; right down to exposure, color, etc. A feat seemingly more and more difficult on some of the newer canon models (XTi for one).

Canon 5D

Stephen C. Dowdy "Wedding Photographer/Photojournalist", Amazon
12 May 2007
  • Summary: As a wedding photographer I love the Canon 20D, nice and light and at a good price I can afford six of them. But, recently I started shooting for a local magazine and felt I needed a better camera. The full frame feature is the number one reason for this purchase.

most amazing camera

photoartist, PhotoAlley.com
17 February 2007
  • Summary: Tha quality of the images taken with the full size sensor make all the difference. The only other camera bodies to have this size sensor are generally out of reach of the hobbyist, where as the 5 d is not and IS worth every dollar.
  • Pros: Accurate Colors, Great Resolution, Nice Features and Settings, Outstanding accuracy, Simple Controls
  • Cons: Print direct button

Should be 4 and half stars

adovelikeboy "CJF", Amazon
12 December 2006
  • Summary: The 5D is worth it, and then some. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat. Visually it performs better than anything else I've seen. I'm VERY attached to 35mm and this camera either matches film (beautiful tones; sumptuous shadow detail) or outperforms film by a margin (flexibility, detail, the utter lack...
