Summary: To have a full frame camera at the prices for this camera now is great. Picture quality is excellent. The feature set is somewhat outdated, along with the LCD but fantastic buy and couldn't ask for any more. Feels solid and size is perfect as I have large hands.
Professional grade camera for the least amount of money

Summary: The best camera for buck has a large format and 12.8 MP once you have one you will see what Im saying is a fact. I know all the other cheaper cameras are higher Meg pic but the large format blows that right out of the water. Have one for astrophotography and one for regular pictures.
Summary: I have always used a cropped format Canon camera and I debated moving up to a full frame camera and I am very happy I did. There are dozens of reviews of this camera online so I will not bother. But my personal opinion is buy it. You will be amazed at the difference between cropped and full frame. I have owned the Drebles, 30D,40D ( which I still use and like very much.),60D ( Which I didn't like much, I don't shoot video.) But this 5D blows them away.
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.

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 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.
Great features, high quality sensor, everything I need!

Excerpt: I am a professional wedding photographer, so I'm always looking for the best! My main camera used to be the Canon EOS-20D, but since I got the Canon EOS-5D, I would never go back! It is such an improvement from the other EOS cameras, you can see the difference so easily comparing pictures. The sensor is very high quality, and the colors in all the pictures are so vibrant!
