Best camera in canons line up. EVER !!!
No Brainer. This is a body you can use for a number of years. Next stop for ISo and sensor technology is to mimic what the human eye can see. I never thought they would get it to where it is with this release.
Not gonna say they will never get it to see what my eye sees. As a digital camera user for the past 12 yrs...Im completely blown away with this update
Was not a hard decision at all
I just want to echo this sentiment. Every aspect of the 1Dx1 that kept me from taking the plunge has been rectified with the Mark II. The Mark I is a phenomenal stills camera and I would have been supremely content with one, but I always had a nagging doubt, perhaps unfounded but it was there. It may have been my need for both great stills and video capabilities professionally, and while I could purchase a better dedicated video camera than even the Mark II I appreciate having the convenience of both in one body. With the Mark II, for what it's worth, it was an instant buy in my mind after seeing the specs and some sample videos made with it. Is the camera perfect? Nope. Is it the best thing Canon has ever released and a small technological marvel in the digital era? Yes! Did it make me instantly start saving money to afford one? Absolutely.
