My question exactly! The 5D2 seems like an awesome camera but I see a lot of people hanging on to the old Classic. I'm curious, why is that?
I hang on to mine as a backup, 2nd one is off being converted to IR and, well, it's still a great camera and produces great photos Heck, I still use my "old" 10D!!!
I like the 12mp sensor A LOT, don't really want to handle all those 21mp. I don't do video.
What I supposedly would like is the ability to shoot at ISO 6400.
Sensor on the 5D2 is as good (better?) IMHO. You don't "have" to shoot video but as I said above, it's great to have if or when you DO want a video. I remember shooting my 5D thinking I had wished I'd brought my video camera ... 5D2, push a button and get a little video ... push the button again, and back to snapping pics!
ISO 6400 is VERY doable with the 5DMKII, without question!!!
