Canon EOS 5D

5d_586x225_2_
Review Date: Jul 2, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,800.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Image Quality, Full Frame, Amazing Files, Wide range of SHARP Fixed lenses, Film like feel, more than I can fit
Cons:
3fps (5 is perfect for me), Sealing, SLIGHTLY slow AF

Being a professional photographer since the days of film, 4x5 and 645 I shot nikon all along the way. Even after the D3 I could not justify $5k for a 12.1 MP camera with less pixel pitch and the lack of nice, sharp and fast primes finally made me switch.

While I have to be a little more mindful of this body the files I get are so much nicer and get way better results when working in ACR. The USM lenses are very nice as well. Slow yourself down and learn to clean your camera and you will not be disappointed with this camera.

I highly recommend this camera even with the rumor of a 5D2 out there and even after the D700 announcement. Nikon has been playing catch up for too long.
