5d vs 5dmk2 colours
May 8, 2010

I've been sopping for a camera for sometime and have slowly started leaning towards 5dmk2. As part of the process i've been looking at a lot of images on the web of various camera os interest (gh1, 7d, 5d, a850, d5mk2).

One concern I have is that it seems to me that the 5d have better colours however I'm not sure if this is due to post processing or a natural characteristic of the camera hence this post.

What I seem to see is that the 5d images are a bit warmer; 5dmk2 images seem to have a blue overtone to everything and manual attempts to make them warm then end up making them too redish (esp skin tones) while the 5d seems more pleasing but this is very subjective and dependent on calibration and other factors.

Is there actually a significant different in tones rendered by the 5d (relative 5dmk2) and is it still possible to buy a 5d these days.
