I can second the Rode Videomic. Picked one up for about $200 a couple of years ago and it's a gem.

I've got a rode videomic as well, and I am planning on using it with my 5d mark II that's coming in the mail tomorrow! It's a decent mic, I'm using it on a canon hv20 right now.

I have purchase the Rode videomic with the dead cat and I love the quality of the sound. Of course, we are not talking about professional product but it's a 1000% improvement on built-in microphone.

i'm so on the fence about a microphone. I recently picked up the sennheiser mke 400 and I've shot some video in and outdoors. I'm currently listening to the built in mic sound compared to the SENN mic and weighing whether or not I need this. I'd mostly be shooting home videos with the mic. What's noticeable is the zoom/focus sound that's picked up by zoom lenses.
The mic was $300 canadian. I recently priced out a Core 2 Duo custom build system at $670 which I need to upgrade my current Pentium4 system (which is bogging me down). I'm thinking better workflow should come before a slight improvement sound quality, especially when the step up is so difficult to detect. Hmm, I feel as though I've already made my choice.
