Both of these are very nice, but I especially like the first one, with the more expanded view of the city.

Ah the second was just a 100% crop to show noise handling.

Just obtained one for myself, thanks to an incredibly unexpected inheritance
which allowed me to justify the cost (of a used example). Crops only before now,
from XTi to 40D to 50D. Five hundred dollars was always easier to justify
and obtain as opposed to roughly 4X that amount. :!:

And wow, it's an amazing camera to be sure!
However, it's become abundantly clear to me in a very short time that I have
much time ahead of me which will need to be dedicated to learning about
how to properly use this wonderful camera for my likes due to vastly
different and increased options & settings.

So, as I familiarize myself more with this camera that I have desired to own
for a long time, no doubt I will be popping into this thread from time to time
to share captures and most certainly ask about many, many things.

Of course I'm all right! Why? What have you heard?!?

Craig...I'm glad you were able to purchase this fine camera, and I wish you much enjoyment using it, in the years ahead. It does offer many functions and options that you will find so useful, and even time saving. Everyone customizes it differently, because each of us have preferences that differ from one another. ENJOY!!

Many thanks for the shout, Mike.
I'm already enjoying it, if only in discovering its capabilities.
It has some features & settings already found which were my primary reasons for using
CHDK and Magic Lantern prior to now.

And OH!, the gloriously LARGE optical viewfinder! ;-)a

Okay, here's an incredibly stupid question. -?
Please be gentle; I'm a total newbie to this camera.

Is there a pictorial diagram of the physical layout/controls somewhere?

I've been through the downloaded PDF manual, searched the Canon
website, and even Googled it in standard and image searches,
but I have yet to find a diagram of the camera's physical layout
with button functions/purposes labeled.

I recall finding such for all of my previous DSLRs: XTi, 40D, 50D.
Unable to locate such for the 5D. Am I simply blind, or just missing the obvious?
I'm asking about this because there are some buttons on the camera's back
which I have yet to find specific mention of in the operating manuals,
such as the unlabeled one above the dial.

I now duck my head in shame and defer this to the experts for guidance. :oops:

Okay, that page will be useful to me, so thank you for linking to it.

However, I haven't seen that unlabeled button pressed yet, across 3 or 4 videos.
It's not the joystick or whichever it's actually named, but the one between it and the
Dial/SET, to the right of [Q].

And such is why I'd like to locate a pictorial of the camera's layout, if it exists.
I still suspect I'm missing something obvious within manuals.
Sure, someone can easily chime in here to simply tell me what that one button is for,
though I'd find it more beneficial to myself to have a labeled layout of these control
buttons for reference against Canon's manuals and other sources which no doubt
refer to its use.

Not trying to be difficult here; I hope I haven't projected such.
Please keep in mind that I'm coming from a 50D, which is very certainly
a vastly different camera from this amazing 5DIV.

I think you aer referring to the AF area selection button. It is depicted on page 30 of the manual and described on page 61. You can customize it for direct AF area selection or other functions as described in the 'customizing the camera' section of the manual.
