Hi everyone, so I'm still shooting film after all these years. I've held out on getting a DSLR for a long time. I've been using an EOS-3 with a 50mm 1.4 since about 2003..and that's it. I just recently picked up a 17-40
Anyways, there's all this talk about the horrible AF of the 5d2...how bad is it really? My 10 year old EOS-3 has 45 point AF with I think something like 6 cross sensors. On paper this seems much better than the 5d2, but how does it perform in real life? Why would there have been a "downgrade" if we can call it one for the 5d2 when my decade old camera seems to have a better AF system? If the 5d2 performs as well or better than the EOS-3 then it's fine since I've never once had a problem with my beloved 3.
I'd love to hear from someone with experience with both cameras...but even if you don't I'd like to hear some experiences with the 5d2s "horrible" AF.
