5DII_1_
Review Date: Jan 24, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $2,699.95 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Low light capability, resolution, AF, VF, LCD, HD video, weather sealing, too many things...
Cons:
Creaky CF slot, I wish the ON/OFF is not on the bottom.

I really enjoy this camera. The AF is nice, very quick, per my intensive research before buying this camera, the AF has improved a lot better than the Mark I. The VF is awesome, large and very clear. I've tested the low light capabilites and it's amazing. Ergonomic is normal Canon's standard..outstanding except I don't really like the ON/OFF power button (just nit picky stuff).

I have just played a little bit with the video and it looks very nice, not sure when I have a chance to really use it seriously but for family videos I'm sure I'll use shortly.

I have to complain about the CF card door, the first 3 hours it's ok after that it creaks, it's not loud but sometimes it's annoying.

I have a little bit of hot pixels but none of them affecting my shots.

The resolution is outstanding, great for wildlife, landscape, portrait and requires details.

I highly recommended this camera for people that are serious into photography.
