Hi are any of you out there using a Canon 5D MarkII and if so please can you let me know how pleased you are and if you could post any shots or links to videos.

I have one and I am beyond pleased with it. I came from a 40D and besides frame burst speed, the 5D Mark II kills it in every other way. The IQ is insane and the low light performance is better then I expected. The same if not better then the Nikon D3 that I got a chance to use for a weekend a few months ago. While I don't have any photos to throw up here, you can easily search flickr and find a ton. Looking at your lenses, I think your next step will be to get some sharp Canon L glass to match the beast that is the Mark II.

Colbyb25, Thanks I agree, I got the package with the 24-105 lens and then got a cheap 70-200 which is OK but not great the 50mm is fine but yes I am looking to get better glass but as normal the glass cost more than the body so I will wait and see until I have sold all my Nikon gear and lenses to help finance the F2 F2.8 glass. Thanks again.

I'm almost afraid to until they get their "black dot" problem solved. On a starfield it would prove most distracting. I usually print at 13x19 or larger.
