Canon EOS 5D

5d_586x225_2_
Review Date: Jan 2, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,998.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: high ISO Performance Film like look Price AF very fast and accurate big buffer Full-frame!
Cons:
ISO not displayed constantly in viewfinder ISO button should be to the far right for easier access Focus Points too centered Useless direct print button Only one "C" memory on dial CF Card door feels fragile, flimsy

Moved up to the 5D from a 300D, so this was really a big difference. I am most impressed by the very accurate AF even in low light. Picture quality is superb and I really have to get used to the fact, that there is something above ISO 200 :-) Even ISO 1600 looks still fantastic with a lot of detail.
One thing is strange, even though the 300D is plastic, somehow the ergonomics of the grip are better. Not the material, just the form/mold, at least for my hand. With battery grip it is better for sure and also adds some weight to balance heavy lenses.

Review Date: Sep 5, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,340.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: bokeh; fast, silent and accurate AF; range; color; contrast; sharpness!
Cons:
Lenshood feels a little loose

My first L lens and I am more than impressed. Heavy and huge
(I might have to mount my flash on the cam all the time to have enough counterweight.).
