I told myself for the longest time that I would not get a 5D2. I have owned a 5DC (2 different times) and really liked the FF images. Since the 5D2 did not get much of an upgrade to the focus system, I did not want to give into paying the premium for the most up to date full frame. I was able to play around with a 5D2 for a couple of hours and really like the upgraded menu system, the upgraded layout, the video, the image quality and the to be honest...the simplicity!!!! I think this camera teamed up with a couple of primes will always be by my side. I love my 1D3 and 1D2 but it's been a while since I've had a "smaller" DSLR. I look forward to taking many photos with this camera.

Oh...I shoot mostly weddings, portraits, and sports so I'll be holding on to the 1D2 and 1D3.

Thanks guys! My 5D2 with my 16-35 is my favorite combo so far...16mm is pretty freakin' wide on FF. I never really cared for my Tamron 28-75 on my 1.3 crops but love it on my FF. I'm going to test the focus system out at a local bicycle race Tuesday evening.
