Why do you need or not need an AA filter?

Weaker AA filter = sharper but more moire pattern noise. Not a huge deal, everything is a tradeoff.

http://maxmax.com/hot_​rod_visible.htm (external link) has sample pictures from a 5D with and without the AA filter installed. The third comparison shows what can happen if you don't have an AA filter.

The 5D has a weak AA filter.

That "Weak" is its "Strength" not "weakness".. some sort of oxymoron.

I remember I was kind of shocked as well when I had bought my first 5D some years ago :)

Just cause it's old don't mean it's not good. 5d is a classic. Now you gotta try a Mark2. :-}

Even Ken Rockwell likes the 5D. Congrats on one of his recommendations.

Wow, right this morning I was looking at some 40D vs 5D threads and now you place this one
I am so tempted to snatch a 5Dc, I would have to rethink my normal zoom situation
How are you feeling with the smaller screen and "slower" reaction of the new camera?
What lens are you using?
Congrats BTW, happy that you are thrilled with your new body

I like the screen on the 5D better than the larger screen on the 40D. I didn't have any problem with focus during the reception, even though it was pretty dark.

Some cameras just have that extra sweetness.
I felt the same way when I got the 1Ds2.
It could just be that the craftsman has found a tool that they really connect with.

I'm convinced my 5D focuses faster/better than my 5D2.
