5D-5DII upgrade regrets?
Mar 19, 2010

Hi All,

Thinking of "pulling the trigger" on an upgrade from 5D to 5DmkII but before doing so I'd like to ask if anybody which has made this upgrade has any regrets?

I mostly shoot landscapes and see the main benefits from upgrading to be improved cropping ability (for when I get the composition wrong in camera) and better LCD (I find the Mk I LCD only really useful for checking histograms), not sure what benifits live view would give so would also be interested to hear your experiences in this regard. Also, I doubt that I would make much use of video, so that isn't really a factor.


P.S. Anybody waiting for a 5D Mk III, you'll be sure that if I upgrade to a Mk II the Mk III will be announced the week after, that's what almost always happens to me
