Someone offered me really good money for my 1Dmk3.. more than i could say no too.. So until the 1D4 comes out i figured it would be a good time to try the 5D2. I really dont need the pro body right now, but i sure miss it a little now that im holding this new small camera in my hand Not cos of what it preform, but more of the size lol.
The 5D2 is great! Beautiful files, and the AF isnt as bad as i expected from all the posts ive read all around. The outer focus points works well.. just not in very bad light. Ive seen it hunt a few times in situations that i of course never saw with the 1D3. Not fair to compare these.. but i still do..
The display is superb! And batterylife.. well not as good as ive seen reported around here. Some claim that they get over 1000 shots on one charge.. I managed to get 600. Not playing around with the screen after every shot either.A little liveview work tho.
Anyways.. i really like this camera, and im waiting for the batterygrip. Might feel even better then? I really miss the size of the 1D.
So i havent had much time with it so far.. just a few snapshots at home to be honest, but if theres (like all other cameras ive owned) a learning curve to master this tool im sure its going to be great at the end!
First shots with the 5Dmk2 & 50L =)

Is there anyone who knows a good workflow to edit these hugh files?! What softwares to use to convert them to better format for editing?
Feels like i would need to convert the MOV files to something else .. the load on my PC is nasty as it is now
Using Quadcore Q6600, 4gb Ram and fast graphiccard (HD4850)
