Canon 5D
Dec 16, 2011

The other day I found a Canon 5D with 10,417 shutter count (Canon did the mirror fix and wrote it on the paper with the camera), Canon battery grip, 3 batteries, RRS L bracket (nice, I use a RRS ballhead/tripod), strap, boxes and documentation for $800. Body is in excellent condition, looks like new (no marks/scraps/etc). I hope the price was ok, because I bought it. I put my 85mm 1.2L on it yesterday and wandered around shooting a few pictures, wanting to see what they looked like.

I'm amazed, image quality is excellent. Images are stunning with this combination, great detail and color. I rarely used the 85 on my 7D, it might stay on this body. Focus is a little slow, LCD isn't great are the only negatives I can find with this body.

I'm starting to wonder - if this old thing is this good, how much better is the 5D2?
