5DII_1_
Review Date: Dec 5, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Amazing sensor, great new DIGIC4 processor, compact design, light body, low light performance, 1080P video, superb LCD screen, live view.
Cons:
on-board microphone

Lives up to the hype, not much else to say that other reviews haven't already. kit lens is pretty awesome for the price, it would be perfect if it had a wider aperture. The IS seems a bit sluggish, but I think I just need more time with it. I'll likely swap it for the 24mm f/1.4L II when they release it.

The on-board mic is kind of useless. It picks up every little bit of noise from the body. If you want audio, you'll need an external mic jacked in.
