Disappointed...
Sep 17, 2008

I wish the 5D2 were limited to less MP with more emphasis on noise and FPS performance. 16MP would have been plenty for my needs. Also, 21MP @ 14bit will require a significant amount of additional storage (yes, storage is cheap, but it's still an issue, not necessarily all monetary).

I was also hoping that Canon would have utilized the sensor design of the 50D, with gapless microlenses.

I'll still upgrade from my 5D, only because Live View would be handy, as would the self-cleaning sensor. I'm glad to see the weight is the same.

I hope the high ISO noise performance is a significant improvement over the 1Ds3. At least a stop over the 5D would be ideal.
