Andrew, Evesham Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Only just started using this beautiful camera. I have produced 4 very nice images so far to the standard I want. Amazing image quality although I had to remove some CA with Optics Pro 8, but so far so good.
Bad points:
None so far.

Christine, London Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good image quality and sensor, decent Canon L lens in kit, ease of use is just right, reliable
Bad points:
few, though moving the "on/off" switch to the top left corner on all models from the 7d onwards (and replacing the fiddly switch the 5d Mark II still has) was a good idea.
No decent lens pouch included and included hood is flimsy, but presumably Canon will argue that those who buy the 5d and L lens combi will already own a 77mm hood.

Jon, Hampshire Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
It is a fantastic camera. It is well worth the money. Don't sit around thinking about buying for months on end like I did. Once out and about taking pictures / video, you'll wonder why it took you so long to get one. Image quality is splendid. The 35mm equivalent sensor swung the mark 2 for me.
Bad points:
Weight could be a problem if you were to wander around in the forest for hours on end like I did the other day.

Richard, Newton Abbot Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Image Quality is stunning as is the ISO performance
Bad points:
Slightly old fashioned AF mode - if you want more FPS and faster AF then go for the mark III or the new 6D for FF or 7D for APS-C. But for landscapes and still life etc it fabulous!

21.1 Megapixel full frame CMOS sensor

For the ultimate in creative shooting, the EOS 5D Mark II features a full frame CMOS sensor (36mm x 24mm). With no cropping or magnification effects, enjoy a true wide angle experience through the large, bright viewfinder. Redesigned pixels minimise noise, while a 21.1 Megapixel resolution surpasses the standards demanded by the leading picture agencies.

DIGIC 4

Canon’s DIGIC 4 works with the EOS 5D Mark II’s image sensor to deliver outstanding reproduction of colours and subtle tonal gradations. DIGIC 4 also delivers split-second start-up times, Face Detection AF in Live View mode, and additional HD movie recording.

High ISO

For handheld shooting in low light, the EOS 5D Mark II offers ISO speeds of up to 6400. For dark scenes where using flash is undesirable, this can be expanded to an incredible ISO 25600.

Full HD movie recording

The EOS 5D Mark II complements outstanding still imaging capabilities with Full HD (1080) video recording. Users can even shoot video to memory card without losing the ability to capture still images. An HDMI connection allows High Definition playback of footage and images on an HDTV.

3.0” High Resolution LCD

The 3.0” Clear View LCD features 920,000 dot resolution, wide viewing angle and dual anti-reflective coatings – allowing ultra-detailed image review in a variety of conditions. Live View displays real-time images on the LCD, offering three types of auto focus: Quick AF, Live AF, and Face Detection Live AF, which locks onto faces detected in the frame.

Up to 3.9 frames per second

The EOS 5D Mark II offers continuous shooting at 3.9 frames per second. When shooting JPEGs to a UDMA card, maximum burst is limited only by card capacity.

9-point AF + 6 Assist AF points

Precision auto focus is assured by Canon’s AF system, which employs 9 selectable points and 6 Assist AF points.

EOS Integrated Cleaning System

Canon’s built-in dust prevention system offers three ways of guarding images against the effects of dust: reduction of internal dust generation; an in-camera sensor cleaning mechanism; and the ability to map stubborn dust spots for removal with Digital Photo Professional software (included).

Durable, compact design

With a magnesium alloy construction, environmental protection and shutter durability of 150,000 releases, the EOS 5D Mark II is equally suited to location or studio work.
