In all this current hysteria, this seems a very rational choice to me.

Have fun with the AF system that hardly works under low light...
Have fun with manual focussing...
Have fun with recomposing and your out of focus shots with the 50 f/1.2...
Have fun with the banding you will encounter...
Have fun with the battery door that will break on your 5D2 sooner or later...
Have fun with the mirror that will fall off when being on an assignment.

But your right its all about the pictures.

Have a 98% keeper rate
No problem with a BrightScreen split prism
No problem with my 50 F1.4
Never seen banding and I shoot from ISO 100 to ISO 3200
Really? What do you do to it?

Must be a one off. Hundreds, if not thousands of pro togs use the 5D2 without fail.

Lets face it, the 5D2 has been the camera to beat for the last 3 years and it is still a formidable camera.
