The EOS 5D Mark II has an all-new 3.0-inch Clear View LCD that features high-resolution 920,000 dots/VGA for far more detail than any previous EOS Digital LCD. Differentiating the Canon EOS 5D from many of Canon's other mid and high end Digital SLRs is the relatively slow 3 fps continuous shooting drive mode. We noted the automatic white balance to be somewhat hit-or-miss both indoors and out. We also found some moderately serious red fringing around highlight transitions in several of our shots, although, overall, digital artifacts were low. Finally, it's worth noting that mediocre lenses will take a big bite out of the Canon EOS 5D's image-quality advantages.
We found the Canon EOS 5D's default Picture Style, Standard, to be overly contrasty and saturated, and in fact, we didn't love the default color from any of the built-in Picture Styles. But they are so customizable that we're sure nearly all EOS 5D
owners, with some testing, will be able to work out settings that please them. We ended up preferring, at least preliminarily, the Neutral style with a small contrast and saturation boost.
Overall, the Canon EOS 5D
's build quality is excellent. The rugged body is composed of a magnesium alloy and stainless steel chassis (including the optional BG-E4 Battery Grip). Although this is not a dust and weather sealed design, the feel is solid and sure.
So, what you are waiting for to catch it? Just remember, only Digital Canon EOS 5D
