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: File quality, ISO management, colors, dynamic range and detail yield, ergonomics and robustness, battery life

Cons: for his age practically none, for the rest his pros and his cons know each other all

Opinion: Purchased recently, it marked the historic transition between the older generations and the new ones in the reflexes, for just over 500 euros I brought home a real jewel... I come from an old 5D and I have to say that between the first and the second there is a big difference... there is everything that in the old 5D dava "annoyance", raw file management between iso and wonderful colors, 21 megapixels all to be enjoyed with a really excellent dynamic range, you can shoot us quietly at 1600 iso without having to correct in post, I would like to know who really claims that the workability of the files is limited because personally the recovery of the shadows I found quite satisfying, as far as the focus the center point works very well even in low light and with ultrasonic optics knows how to be fast enough, for a professional even today can be really a great choice considering the price in the used, especially in ceremonial works and events, after ten years past I can really still recommend it to everyone !

Pros: Build Quality, Solidity, sensor/file Quality, high ISO/Noise Management

Cons: No one in relation to age and the price of the used

Opinion: I Own this machine for a year and honestly I bought it almost by accident, because I wanted to try a FF without spending a fortune and without particular foreclosures of brand/age/etc... I immediately felt very good in everything, but I actually at that time I had no real comparison parameters, because my digital experience was limited to the Crop sensors of Fuji (although excellent for many things). Now I have to admit that the more time passes and the more I am happy with the purchase: I have good familiarity with Lightroom and with its raw I can really do anything! Also every time I happen to compare the surrender with rooms of friends, it always comes out winning (we are all non-professional amateurs with similar band instruments):) Unfortunately I don't know the quality of the latest generation FF, I guess it's excellent, but at a much higher cost. For me it is absolutely recommended unless you are looking for a lightning war for sports photos or that generally require speed of Fire and use. PERFECT in the studio or in general for photos that you can take calmly, such as portraits, architectures and landscapes.

Pros: Robust, reliable, tropicalized, high ISO, video, Optical Park

Cons: In relation to age, I do not match any "cons" in fact...

Opinion: Obviously it is a camera that now has a few years on the shoulders, but always remains a professional 5d. In my opinion, it has an enviable sharpness and contrast, even at high ISO. I repeat, we must give a judgement, bearing in mind that it was born a few years ago. It does not have the flexibility that the latest cameras offer, but knowing how to photograph very great satisfactions. It is practical and "substantial" and above all keeps the "price" in time. Personally, this is my personal judgement, I strive to find the cons marked.

Pros: ISO 6400, holding value in used, easy resaleable

Cons: Indecent Autofocus in peripheral points, very few AF points and all Central, function to servo useless

Opinion: A great full frame as for the sensor but it has many, too cons in my opinion. One on all the quality of the autofocus. Autofocus points are all central. The autofocus is good quality only in the center point but if I wanted a camera that forced me to focus and then recompose... not possessions bought a reflex and it would not make sense to have a kit optics F 1.8-2-2.8... On the other hand the peripheral points (even if peripheral are not) only work in good light condition. Unfortunately unlike many, I have used the 5d MkII in the sports arena. In this area, when you can focus on the quality of the photo is great (as in panning) but there are many occasions when you can not just shoot seen the distressful autofocus and the function to the servo... not received. On the other hand the machine is instead excellent in the case of photos "family" even at high ISO or panoramas etc etc... But in that case it is enough and advances a 5d old (other machine I had and I have unfortunately resold...). Never tried to make videos.
