I'm weird - I love my 5D2
Apr 19, 2011

You'd imagine from reading lots of people the 5D2 is horrible, but I guess it suits certain people just fine, and apparently I'm one of them.

I've owned many systems over the last 3 years or so, but I've finally settled on what I think I'm going to really love, a 5D2, 24-105 for the walk around, 85 f/1.8 for the low light stuff and a ZE 35/2 for the wide-normal awesomeness.

Super happy with the IQ, the video is awesome (using it for my kids) - I love it.

I missed focus on this but don't care - love the look anyway

The detail in this frog was awesome - this is the full frame, uncropped shot.

I was able to pull up the shadows on my son very satisfactorily! (some color issue, I think I was in the wrong color space and did some bad conversions)
