Hey guys,

just bought the new 5D, Fantastic, really really worth the money considering the original 5D cost over 5k when released u can pick this one up for around 3,500..
Only have one criticism if it.

It's neck strap says canon "EOS 5D MK II" there is no need to tell the world! i prefer the strap on my old 5D that just says canon EOS

:)

Anyway. crazy crazy clear. i have shot on Medium formal digital and although the quality is not quite as good of course, it's soo close that's its scary..

Very good camera.

With 1080 HD Video, an interesting feature

not as yet,

If you have the old 5D, throw it on ebay, i only had to pay and extra $1,000 onto of what i sold my old 5D for.

That's a bargain in my mind!!!

friend got a new one friday (aus store, canon aus stock) that had v1.0.6 firmware on it, might pay to check and upgrade to 1.0.7 if its not yet been done.

these guys are about as cheap as ive see for AUS stock

what specs are the hd video?
I heard it was something weird like 27fps interlaced or something obscure, c'mon canon don't be that guy!

Umm, nope.

The normal rate in the city is $3800 for the body, ask nicely and that'll come down.

where?

Don't know what you Sydney folk are getting but in Melb Ted's do them for $3800 and it's not an uncommon (I know for a fact that MIchaels, camera action and one other who's name escapes me do them for that price)...

Just because it's not advertised on the net, does not mean it doesn't exist....
