Canon EOS 5D

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.
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.
