Nice! What do you shoot with it if you don’t mind me asking?

I've had mine since it's release and I still love it. I also have a 7dII for times I need fast autofocus or the crop factor reach etc. Eventually I'll upgrade to something else but I've been stuck debating going to Sony or Fuji etc. so I've been sorta paralyzed on gear but since there is little I cannot shoot with my kit I keep holding out. I have a nice lens selection and really for what I shoot the 5d2 is certainly adequate.

Funny but this is one of my most viewed images on flickr. I would imagine when I finally do upgrade I'll keep the pancake on there.

Very cool man! Just got a 6D and am debating on just keeping my 5DII(shhhh, don’t tell my wife:evil:) I too almost made the Sony/mirrorless jump but can’t get past the horrible autofocus with adaptors...

I tried a Sony A7RII and I thought it was great, autofocus seemed fine with the adaptor. I just don't want to spend all the time and money switching.

I've been really enjoying the 7D2 a lot lately.

I do. It's still my mainstay camera.

Just upgraded to the 5DIV over the holidays taking advantage of the rebates and low prices. Still have and use the 5DII but it's being relegated to my slide/negative scanning setup.


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