Is the 5D MKII the best Canon body for the money? If not
what is your choice?


I may not be the village idiot, but I'll do until
he gets here.

It really depends on what you shoot.

It depends on what your minimum criteria is. I've seen a few Canon XS for sale at around $250. That's a lot of quality for a very inexpensive price.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

40d, 5d classic or 1d mark II

all depends what you shoot really, but you can't go wrong with any of those

5D Classic hands down.

This is of course assuming that by "Best" you mean image quality. If your best means speed of operation and focus than I'd have to say the 1D Mark II(n).

Now that I am thinking about it, If you were a novice you may find both of the above cameras cumbersome and too complicated. In this case I'd go with the 30D. Easy to use, plenty of features to build on, speed for when you need it, and an amazing sensor.

Best bang for the buck bodies out there right now are the 1D2, 5D(classic), and 40D. All of them can be had for $1,100 US or less each.

Again as has been said, it really depends on what you shoot. For you, the best bang for your buck might be an XSI or it could be a T1I, it really depends.

Using the Canon upgrade/loyalty program, you can't beat $629 for the 50D. It's a fantastic deal.

had the 40D and sold my 50D before selling my 40d and the only reason I sold the 40D was to get the 5D classic to go with my 7D.
