New Camera

I just received my new camera today. I purchased a Canaon EOS 5D Mark II.
Does anyone here own this camera if so I would appreciate to get some information how you like it and I need help with it also. I owned the 30D and did pretty good with that one but this one is different.

Re: New Camera

I have the 5D1 which is an awesome camera for landscape, portrait etc . As long as you realise you are on full-frame and not a crop and that your lens choice will differ. Wide on full-frame is wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiide. What help do you need?

Re: New Camera

There's no feeling like having a new camera, just go out there and use it, enjoy and then admire the finished results! (hopefully)

Re: New Camera

I have the 5D2 and I am very pleased with it. I also have a 10-22mm EF-S lens which I cannot use but knew that before I bought the camera; it is well publicised. I have yet to buy a replacement lens but my 24-105mm f4 L IS does most of what I need and I just stitch a couple of shots together where I would have used a wider lens. I would like a shift & tilt lens but realistically I will probably settle for a 17-40mm L.

I have been using the 5D2 for over 6 months now so if you have any questions you can try me.

Re: New Camera

Took my shiny new 5d2 out for it's first outing this weekend. Wow crisp pictures or wot.

So far I have only one miniscule minute teeny weeny gripe, and thats the mirror ain't arf loud when it flips compared to the 40D.

I do notice the loss of crop factor but I have a full range of glass from 17mm right up to 400mm so it should pose no problems.

I'm yet to try my 1.4 teleconvertor on the 100-400 to gain back the distance for my bird photography.

As to the camera, well more buttons to learn but this is the 1st body I have felt that I wanted to sit down with and learn, so maybe not a bad thing.

As Dave has mentioned I also have a 10-22 efs which I'm just waiting for a cheque in the post for as I've had to sell it. I put the money to a 17-40.

Best advice has already been mentioned, get out there and take some pictures. I doubt very much you will be dissapointed

Re: New Camera

The EF S lens will not fit my 5D M II I have to use EF lens only. I just purchased a replacement for my17-55mm which I used with the 30D.
I have enjoyed my new camera the last couple day's I been out with it all afternoon both day's. I have hundreds of pictures. I am amazed at this camera what quality photos it produced, don't need to do much editing except crop some of them and size.
