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

Good service

Joseph B., Newegg
23 June 2008
  • Summary: Would order from again considering the low price and quick responses. Won't go for rush ordering option again, however.
  • Pros: Product arrived in a timely manner, and packaging was very good considering the high value of the product.
  • Cons: Added the rush order option, and although it was not rush ordered, they still charged the rush order fee which contradicted what their policy stated.

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
4 April 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).

Great Camera - minor flaws

James, Amazon
4 April 2007
  • Summary: I don't usually write reviews but I was fortunate enough to be in a position to purchase this camera as soon as it's available and their aren't that many user reviews out yet so I'll add mine: This camera is a fantastic pro machine.

5D IS EVERYTHING ITS CRACKED UP TO BE!

Michael D. Newcomer, Amazon
3 April 2007
  • Summary: I came from the EOS 40D which is a GREAT camera, but I have to say the 5D is amazing. Even at ISO 1000 or long exposures there is very little if any noise in my photos. I didn't realize how nice having a full-frame sensor would be, and am loving the true wide-angles I can get now.
