Actually I was thinking about the black spot issue early on with the 5DII. I had totally forgotten about the 5DIII light leak issue.

And I had totally forgotten the firmware overflow bug in the 5D2, despite owning one. :oops:

Not experienced this, despite owning a 5D2. Care to elaborate?

Was a bug in early firmware where very light pixels sometimes came out as black. Not sure really how many 5D2 that got produced with the original firmware before Canon released a fix.

No doubt...just not anywhere to the extent of the D600. BTW 25% of a poll on a photography forum probably translates to MAYBE 5% of total sales...

And this logic is backed up by what facts?

Well, it is a known fact that unhappy people spends a lot more time publishing their views.

Really? Can you please point out where Canon's manufacturing/design has ruined the first few thousand pictures generated by the camera? Thinking specifically of the Nikon D600 dust and oil problem.

Do a search on the 1D MK III AF issue on this forum. ;) I owned one! :lol:

The biggest issue is Canon has dropped the ball on Landscape photography:cry: The 5DII was best value for long time and then the Nikon D800E came out blew away all other FF cameras for landscapes with lots of megapixels and dynamic range. For landscape photographers shooting on 5DIII or 5DII the difference in the final product would be negligible. The D800E having extra 2.5 stops in the shadows and significant megapixel is huge advantage. National Geographic photographers are required to use one exposure and no HDR. Guess what there using? D800E

There lies the beauty of the Sony A7R that can take all your existing Canon lens and produce those wonderful high resolution, large dynamic range images.:D

Already invested too much in L glass. Here is a picture taken with 5DII that could benefit from A7R or D800E extra 2.5 stops in the shadows. I get vertical banding if try to recover to much in the shadows.

Many thanks for explaining. I do indeed have one of the last ones so its reassuring to hear that it was fixed.
