Please show me otherwise. The Canon 50D/5D whitepaper doesn't say to the contrary. The only difference the whitepaper says is that the 5D MKII has a Digic 4 chip, which makes the AF a bit faster.


reread it. chip control is part of the system. I would presume same sensor type, but better overall system control over the information it sees. That is a "system", which all the components are not the same, and they do not function the same.

I have a classic and a mkii and have tested side by side in the same conditions. But your opinions and your end results of hands on testing of these bodies side by side may vary!

According to your logic, a 2008 Ford Focus with 2.0L engine putting out 140hp, has a different engine than a 2009 Ford Focus with same 2.0L engine putting out 145hp (due to small tweaks in programming). Even though it's THE SAME MECHANICAL ENGINE, because one is using a slight faster PCM, you feel that they are different engines.

Personally, I don't. The 5D MKII is using the same hardware. Yes, the Digic 4 chip is different, but no one really knows what responsibility the Digic 4 plays in autofocus (Canon won't comment, other than saying "faster data processing"). Therefore I don't believe anyone can say that the AF systems are different, when the only difference between the two is one has a Digic 2 chip, and the other has a Digic 4 chip and Canon won't specific exactly what the difference in the chips do for AF.

And if you use a 1.2, such as the 85L being discussed here on both bodies (that you have, right?), then you will see that the mkii is better.

I have no idea what your analogy is about. But saying they are the same "system" is incorrect. If you wish to debate that, you should start a new topic with specific words of "autofocus system".

Now where are those pics at OP!!!

interesting debate about the AF since I plan on going to a 1Ds mk2 for "better" AF rather than the 5D mk2 from my 5D mk1 as an "upgrade". I am primarily a wide open or close to it prime shooter as evidenced here: www.mikereidphotograph​y.com (external link)

Wow congrats on your new toys! If your girlfriend suggested that you make the purchase and didn't give you any grief about any of it....then she could look like last years pair of sneakers and it shouldn't make any difference to you at all.....she is still a "keeper" in my book!
