Pros: Full Frame. Image quality. Intuitive ergonomics and menu. Juicy LP-E6 battery, shared among many prosumer EOS cameras. CF card slot. mRAW, sRAW. Rugged construction. And a vast EF lens family to play with.

Cons: Shadow recovery isn't that great. Consumer grade AF. Only 3.9fps. Fixed LCD. And a bit heavy.

Opinion: It's a great tool for many deeds. 22mp in its time was the state-of-the-art imaging sensor with 1080p video/LiveView features and to this day those pictures hold their ground well. Nice LCD quality and size, but it doesn't really work well in bright sunlight, which is only normal, I guess. Now, being a decade old camera, it's a fantastic camera to start with for any beginner, photography enthusiast, because it can be had used for less than a brand new Rebel class DSLR (less than $600), which is crazy and fantastic. IMHO, CF card is a faster and much safer media to deal with, than SD, but, if needed, SD can be easily adopted via CF-to-SD adapter.

Pros: Colours, ergonomics, tropicalization

Cons: nobody

Opinion: This was a body I wanted for years and finally when I bought it, it let me down a bit. Let's be clear, it's a fantastic machine, but the spark didn't start, maybe because it has a slight latency when you press the shutter button, which I honestly didn't like, but it's nonsense of course and has nothing to do with the problems, because that's what I wouldn't call it. The colors are at the top, beautiful and very deep, the rows are well workable, as well as the three-dimensionality of the same. If you are used to shooting in LV, with this machine the automatic focus is a bit cumbersome. Right now it's a little dated, but honestly as a pure landscaping machine I'd buy it back, I'd like to give you a second chance.

Pros: Professional Canon, still current, market price, reliable.

Cons: It makes videos, and it's a flaw that almost all current cameras have; One slot.

Opinion: Full-frame, tropicalized, professional, is located around 400 euros in excellent condition. It is still relevant and allows not only to have fun but also to work and also for some time to be more, because it is indestructible. As the only flaw I find is the fact that it has only one memory slot, but CF-Cards, when they are about to leave, give some signs of failure. Flanked by two MarkIII and a Mark IV for ceremonies and attached events in the restaurant, until before the lockdown, she worked with dignitas without being outclassed by the others. Mark II with the 24-105 I used it, finding myself very well. Today my partner uses it every now and then, with results that I never imagined from those who shoot automatically and in jpeg. If you're looking for multiple focus points, extreme isos, burst shots, wifi and stuff, it's best to get on top of something else, but if you're looking for the necessary single-shot focus points, but very high quality, then the Mark II is the perfect machine. It even allows you to take sports photography, as long as you shoot without a burst. As a sensibilit, he thinks up to ISO 3200. I personally use flash and rarely go beyond 400/800 ISO, so it's not a problem. For those who use flash rarely because they prefer high isos, then it is good that they horizon on something else, admitted to finding something for the same figure. Certainly the Mark III offers a little more, but used is at twice the price and if you do not need to have double slots (a CF and an SD) and iso over 3200, you do not need to spend more, considering that they are tractors that easily reach 300 thousand shots without effort, therefore still usable for many years. The cards are so hard at saving the files, but I broke them from mark II It's the first camera that introduced the video world into cameras, and it's the only fault it has. I firmly believe that cameras only need to be photographed. Around I meet people with cameras put on supports that are not stabilizers, complete with microphone equipped with dead cat, who get fatigued unnecessarily because they could use handheld cameras, designed to make videos that activate and stop by opening and closing the door, and some of them have microphone and headphone inputs and even take great photos. It's no different from the photographer using the handheld camera instead of the camera to take pictures... what's the point? If anyone wonders who created these monsters, know that it was canon with 5D Mark II

Pros: Great grip, good up to 1600 Iso, tropicalization, good display, joystick, full frame, second-hand price (paid 320€) shutter 1/8000

Cons: Iso 6400 to throw away, CF memory price, video only in automatic mode

Opinion: Great value for money. The machine allows you to get photos with beautiful colors, holds isos well up to 1600, it is a full frame, which is synonymous with greater sharpness and image quality. It has good resolution, the display is good. Too bad you can not make videos in manual mode, but for those who are interested in photographs and just highly designed.

Pros: Image quality, colors and robustness

Cons: AF in Live View very slow, low display resolution, non-posable, shadow recovery, lack of af eye, WIFI, touch screen, but above all it does not take photos on its own and you even have to think about composition and lighting of the subject before shooting, which I find unacceptable in 2020!

Opinion: He is currently 12 years old. Technologically it belongs to the Paleolithic. Yet, taking a photo under 3200 iso, well composed and illuminated, I challenge anyone to distinguish it from a 2020 camera file. Of course, the years are felt, especially on the AF side and the Live View. Then I read about many people adapting manual optics on mirror less and I understand that, the playful appearance, for the photoa walker, is of great importance. The truth is that to have superior shooting quality, robustness and the functions of a modern camera, you have to spend a lot of money. But so many. An R5 currently costs more than 4000 euros. While a 5D mk2 currently buys with 350-400 euros. One feature few talk about is the viewfinder. It's huge, bright and optical. In my opinion, a photoadamator should consider it as a compromise in order to enter the Canon system, with many quality optics and flashes, at human prices, especially in the used. Of course, you can also spend a thousand euros to have the last mirror less and take photos of the kittens, with the 18-55...
