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: A tank!

Cons: The limited isos

Opinion: A war machine. As soon as you pick it up, you can feel the sturdiness. Used with fast lenses (f1.8 and f2.8) it is exceptional. When you're using it indoors with lenses like 17-40 f.4 L, you need the help of the flash. At iso above 2000 the photographs are noisy. However, it remains, despite today's current technology, a very good product. I gave it away because my type of photography needs to work at high iso given the environments with low light and the use without a tripod. I upgraded to the next version just for these reasons, because otherwise it's a great machine.

Pros: All.. In itself it is the perfect machine.

Cons: The only con is that it was no longer produced.

Opinion: A full-fledged professional machine. File quality, speed and resistance to heavy and continuous work, infinite batteries, heavy and very solid. Minimal and simple menu. Easy management of menus and their items, Practical for most uses, from still-life to weddings. A machine that I will continue to use until I die. mine or his.. I didn't find the same feeling with other cameras that I found with the 5D MKII. Although it is starting to get older, it remains the room with which I produce the most photos and which I feel confident in every occasion. Also used for videos it has never disappointed me. If you then forget that it's professional and start playing with it, then it becomes even more interesting. It is useless to compare it to today's reflex or mirrorless cameras, but I would recommend it to those who want to do photography.

Pros: Simple , robust , battery , central af , file paste

Cons: Hesitant in critical light situations, isos relatively intolerant to high sensitivities

Opinion: I spend three words for this machine body: pure, essential, functional. Pure, because it was born for a pro audience that wants to do only photography despite the magic lantern has also been used in Hollywood to shoot some films in the past years, essential because its controls are extremely intuitive, functional because for the battery capacity and for the intrinsic quality of the file it can be used for artistic / professional purposes.

Pros: Colors, RAW workability, file quality, tropicalization, solidity, center point AF, light viewfinder, the files it churns out

Cons: ISO over 1600, file shadow recovery, magenta sometimes difficult to manage, AF points other than the central one

Opinion: Purchased back in 2012 it was my first full frame SLR and the camera that introduced me to photography. It has accompanied me everywhere in my travels, from the deserts of Australia to the frozen forests of Finland, it is a tank, with a feeling of incredible robustness and solidity. It makes excellent photographs, in these ten years of use I have been able to fully know its strengths and weaknesses and how to best adapt the post production in order to optimize the files it produces. At low iso and with the tripod gives shots of incredible quality, it is in any case very versatile also for street and travel photography, up to iso 1600. From the best of itself on bright days, the recovery on the shadows is quite disappointing, so you have to take it into account down during shooting and maybe overexpose slightly and then reduce the exposure in post. In situations where dominant magenta emerges, these are very difficult to manage, even with good post production. As for the AF, I have always used only the center point focusing and recomposing, the speed and accuracy is very good while, the same cannot be said for the other focus points that are not so reliable. You have to break a spear in favor of the brightness of the excellent viewfinder, look through it and hear the sound of the shutter is pure poetry. For the rest, it is a camera body to which I remain very fond and despite being dated, in my opinion it can give excellent results to those who have the patience to fully know its potential and the commitment to understand in depth its valid strengths. I recently upgraded to another model of the same house, but it must be said that I have a great memory of the 5D Mk II and if I think of all the adventures and magical moments we shared together, I can only feel a bit of nostalgia.
