Pros: Full-frame sensor, image quality, build, weight, LCD
Cons:
Not an EOS 1ds mk2. Vignetting

I bought this to replace the Canon EOS 20D I'd been using for the last year. The 20D is a great camera but this is miles better. The build, weight, viewfinder, sensor size are all plusses. It feels a lot more solid and better made than the 20D also. The only gripe I have is with the vignetting. I bought this with the 24-105 f4 lens, which is fantastic, but when shot wide open there is considerable vignetting in the corners, thankfully this is correctable in Photoshop. The image quality is much better than the 20D and equal to that of my EOS 1V, if not better. Superb for all but sports photography where the frame rate is too slow, but it wasn't bought for that purpose.
