I'm hoping that I get a very early II and that I get into the used market while the prices are still relatively high.

High side. Okay, I'd be good at $925, I hope you're offering free shipping.

Body only? Looks like about $1,800 +/-.

As you know, a lot will depend on the camera's external appearance and if it comes with all of the original accessories and Canon packaging. Mine was in outstanding condition and sold quickly for $1,700. If you want to see my original ad/pics, click here.

I also strongly feel that you can net more money via Craigslist, that is, if you have some patience and are willing to repost your ad there every 3-5 days to keep it fresh.

Cheers,
Bryan

Here's a hands-on report that just came out two hours ago. Again, nothing new to us, but always good to read about other people's first observations.

Thanks for that Bryan

this caught my eye :lol:

"The camera can now be set to Ambience Priority, where it retains some of the warm color tones from artificial light sources, or White Priority which eliminates most of the warmth from tungsten lighting. When we were being shown this feature there were several wedding snappers oohing and saying how much time this will save them in editing, one even said he was upgrading to the camera based on that feature alone."

Ambience priority sounds yummy--- AWB was already really good. Looks like they figured out a way to improve it...awesome.

Ambience and White priority are fantastic on the 5DS / R - way better than just standard AWB.

Funny you mention that Mike. When I read that section, I actually thought of you! As a working wedding pro, I knew it would catch your eye.

That's great to hear David! I am just now breaking out my new 5DsR and I'll have to check these settings out.

Good stuff!

I did not know about that setting. 5D3 does not have it and I don't think the 1Dx has it either......Very cool

Another super cool feature in the 5DS / R that 1DX II users are going to love is the electronic level in the viewfinder. The 5D III has a crudimentary one; but it's crap and I always hated it. I had thought having a good level was limited to mirrorless cameras with electronic viewfinders, like my a7R II, so it's fantastic to see Canon finding a way to implement cool goodies from mirrorless into DSLR bodies.

DSLRs are supposed to be soon-extinct dinosaurs according to many mirrorless fanboys, but I just keep seeing new abilities being added to DSLRs. At least for now they're getting better, not fading away like some would like to think.

Ha  :p:twisted: watch how many of those mirrorless fan boys start selling now that Dslrs are clean at 25-51000 ISO. Plus the AF systems are no comparison and the layouts on all of them suck.... Im sure I will catch some crapola for this remark......I see ZERO reason to go mirrorless. None of them can touch what the new bodies will be able to do especially top of the line 1Dx2 and D5's from Nikon

Hmmmm. I'm waiting on the new 1D beast but I don't plan on loosing the A7Rii anytime soon :)
I see strengths and weaknesses with each body.
Example, we've got Iceland coming up and no EOS kit will be tagging along-why take a machinegun to a landscape fight?
Conversely in 2017 it's Mongolia for the big eagles and only EOS kit will be going.
Go figure.
Last weekend it was backpacking with lots of elevation gain=the Lumix GM5 :)
Def. a first world problem having these choices.
