Congrats! The 5D is a beautiful machine. Wait until you pair it with the EF 50mm f/1.4 or EF 85mm f/1.8 and it's all over...

LOL... I have the 85mm f/1.8 and just ordered two days ago the 50mm f/1.4 too... especially because I have a 5D!

50mm f/1.4 on the 5D and 85mm f/1.8 on my 40D gives me a 50mm/135mm effective pair without lens swaps!

Just putting it through it's paces at Chatsworth House today before I have to use it in anger.

It's a lot of fun as well, especially in low light conditions, ISO 3200 is viable for prints upto A4, no problems at all - that's seriously impressive.

Man are you in for a suprise, I print at 30x20 with some ISO3200 images & they look very good, noise is visible but certainly nothing major & only noticeable when you stick your nose up to the print to inspect it, from a normal viewing distance its great. so long as exposure was nailed of course ;)

What I love about ISO3200 on the 5D is colours are just as nice & images still contain plenty of detail, normally lost at such high ISO's.

Thought you were selling your 5D? Is it gone or did you change your mind?
Nice photos btw.

I know half a dozen people who were interested in buying this particular camera (including myself!) but he had it listed as selling to ConUS only so we didn't bother replying. I personally have had enough grief from people who don't put a location in their postings and then state they'll only sell to the US, so someone who stated this from the start is making things clear.

Pity, he'd have the cash and I'd have the camera by now...

PS versedmb - if you still want to sell it, I'm here! :D

I took a couople of pics at 3200 yesterday and they were just 'wow' as (like you say) the exposure was bang on, noise was minimal and more 'artistic' than intrusive.

Stunning stuff

Yes I no longer shy away from using such a high ISO.
