DCRP Review: Canon EOS-5D Mark II
4.5 Star Review  DCResource - Apr 18, 2009

The Canon EOS-5D Mark II is a solid upgrade to its predecessor, and a great choice for Canon users looking to step up to a full-frame body. The Mark II has a whopping 21.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor (which isn't without a few issues), great build quality, full manual controls, HD movie recording, and more accessories than you could possibly afford. There aren't a lot of negatives, but they're all important ones. Images straight out of the camera are quite soft, though your choice of lens has at least some role in that. You'll also find some detail smudging from noise reduction at low ISOs in some photos, proving that compact cameras aren't the only one with this problem. While the Mark II's HD movie mode is very cool, the lack of continuous autofocus makes recording a challenge. Finally, the 5D lags behind its two main competitors -- the Nikon D700 and Sony Alpha DSLR-A900 -- in terms of battery life and continuous shooting performance. Despite those issues, the 5D Mark II is still a heck of a camera, and one that is easy to recommend.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II Review
5 Star Review  Imaging Resource - Jan 20, 2009

Canon has been adding something special to each of their new digital SLRs, something that sets the camera apart from the pack. This time, the something special is the HD movie mode in the Canon EOS 5D Mark II. Capable of capturing 1080p movies, the new camera opens up a whole world of video opportunities for those with a selection of Canon full-frame lenses -- from capturing extreme wide angles to isolating subjects with long telephoto, the 5D Mark II is truly a video artist's tool. Of course, the 5D Mark II also has the goods for the more traditional still photographer, offering a 21.1-megapixel sensor, a tuned version of the sensor in the Canon 1Ds Mark III. Now the 5D Mark II's sensor has significantly better high ISO performance, able to produce nearly noise-free images up to ISO 6,400. If you can handle a little noise, you can even reach out to 25,600. The Canon EOS 5D Mark II's new high resolution LCD delivers a fine 640x480 image for better focus checking and a great image in Live View mode. The whole package comes in below the price of competing full-frame digital SLRs, at $2,699. Click below to read our full review of the Canon EOS 5D Mark II.

Camera Labs – Canon EOS 5D Mark II review
4.5 Star Review  cameralabs.com - Dec 15, 2008

Canon's EOS 5D Mark II is a powerful and feature-packed DSLR that represents a significant upgrade over the original 5D, and a tough rival in the growing 'affordable' full-frame market. The new Mark II may share essentially the same body and AF system as its predecessor, but almost everything else has been upgraded. The 21.1 Megapixel sensor is capable of recording a huge amount of detail given a decent lens, and the 3in VGA screen is a big improvement over its predecessor. The new movie mode is also very impressive, although a number of caveats mean it's unsuitable as a replacement for a normal camcorder and casual filming technique. Normal photos are not without faults too, including the now infamous black dot issue which could be a problem if you shoot at night. In our full review of the EOS 5D Mark II at Cameralabs, we've tested all the new features, explained how to make the most of the movie mode, and provided comparisons against its two main rivals, the Sony A900 and Nikon D700. We also have examples of the black dot problem and who it'll affect, so to find out if this is the right full-frame DSLR for you, check out our review.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II | with EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens
4 Star Review  productwiki.com - Feb 7, 2010

Announced on September 16th 2008, the EOS 5D Mark II is Canons successor to the EOS 5D, the worlds first compact full frame digital SLR. The EOS 5D Mark II boasts a new 21MP CMOS sensor, an expanded ISO range of 50-25,600 and a wealth of improvements and new features including full 1080p HD movie recording, live view, 3.0" 920k dot LCD, DIGIC IV processor, increased battery capacity and sensor dust reduction. A January 2009 firmware update (1.0.7) fixes a problem with vertical banding noise when recording in sRAW1 as well as the "black dot" phenomenon noticed soon after the camera was released to the public. ... PROS: (1) 21MP CMOS sensor (2) 1080p HD movie recording (3) Wide range ISO setting (100-6400) (4) Live View - 3." 920k dot LCD (5) Increased Battery Capacity ... CONS: (1) 1080p30 is nice, but 1080p60 would be better (2) HD Video capture up to 4GB per clip (3) expensive (4) 1080p video focussing only by pressing AF-ON button - resulting in chronically unfocused movies (5) no popup flash (for quick surprise shots)

5 Star Review   By Andy on Adorama - Jan 16, 2012   

Great image quality, 24-105mm lens is versatile and super sharp. very good low light results. This was a great value as a kit, saved $200 over other places after comparison shopping. Only drawback is this is full size, so a bit large and heavy but worth i

I recently sold my Fujifilm S5Pro and all my lens to purchase this camera, I do not regret it, this camera is the best, highly recommended. The camera is quiet, it is alittle heavy, but I like that. I bought it with the 24-105 lens and added the battery

Great camera. Built like a brick, but takes amazing photos. Certainly not one for the beginner, on either cost or ease of use grounds but once you know what you're doing great photos are easy.

Everything TheySay It Is
5 Star Review   By Dr Dave on Adorama - Nov 21, 2011   

The reason to have this camera is the image quality for the price. I don't need rapid continuous shooting - 5D mk II is more than adequate for me in this regard. The focusing system works well for me; perhaps others have higher demands.

Outstanding Camera; Great Kit Price

The 5D has a great "feel", simpler to use than some of its competition, very responsive and rugged. Use it daily for photo journalism as well as abstract compositions.

I either got a bad lens or they all are soft from 24-50mm. Soft on the edges and it had a front focusing issue. Not much, an inch or so, however I sent it back as defective. For an L lens, I was simply not impressed. For the money, I would think twice bef

Wonderful camera and incredible high ISO performance. I'd purchase again... I just wish the focus was faster. I've found it fast enough for weddings though. I usually have a 580ex2 in the shoe when it's dark, so the focus assist beam helps.

5 Star Review   Crutchfield.com   

Crutchfield has collected 6 user reviews for this product with an average rating of 5.0 out of 5 stars. The most recent reviewer said, "I was having a hard time deciding between the 5D and the 7D but quickly realized that the full frame difference mattered to me. In short, I do mostly documentary work and use 30fps and love what this camera can do with natural light. It is amazing. My theory, buy it and you will not regret it. "

It was finally time to upgrade my trusty old EOS D60 and I did a ton of research around whether to get a 5DmII or 7D. In the end I went with the 5DmII because of the full-frame sensor and therefore the ability to shoot wider angles with my existing lenses
