Canon EOS 5D

5d_586x225_2_
Review Date: Nov 24, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Image quality, full frame, DR, 2nd hand prices now!
Cons:
None since using it. Already knew about any ‘negatives’ such as dust, speed, etc, none of which has effected the images it produces for me

With everyone trading in this camera for the new 5D II, bargains can be picked up now. I picked up mine for £800 second hand but in perfect condition. I wanted it for landscapes mainly, to complement my 30D and it has made a definite difference to me.

My 17-40mm lens is what it should be, full frame viewfinder is so much nicer (forgot what it was like), dynamic range seems better, image detail certainly is.

This camera has made me slow down my photography and think about what I am doing, getting the exposure right, composure, lighting, etc. It’s given me a renewed interest in my photography.

If you’re looking for a bargain and interested in the art of photography, then this is a great camera.
