Canon EOS 5D

5d_586x225_2_
Review Date: Mar 17, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $2,970.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Metering, color rendition, file options, file size; most of all FULL FRAME. Shooting at ISO 50 reminds me of shooting Kodachrome 64 with an F3HP. It isn't Kodachrome, but it's within sight.
Cons:
LCD is difficult to view in bright daylight. Hoodman covers are awkward.

I shot Nikon for 20 years until I purchased the Canon 5D. I can say without hesitation I will never go back. The learning curve was mild as a Nikon user. I recommend this camera for any pro. I added the vertical grip for the extra shutter button and "meater" feel.
For nearly 13MB, the price is a remarkable bargain.
