5D MKII AF Improved Over The 5D
May 25, 2012

It’s been said many times here that the 5D and 5D MKII have the same auto focus mechanism but I find that is not true with my new MKII.

I am interested in HQ video and was planning to buy the new MKIII until I decided it was not worth the additional $1300 for my needs so I bought a new MKII that included some extra promotional items.

In comparing my two cameras using the same lens and CF card I find the new MKII focuses much faster. I use only center point focusing as I feel I have more control.

Needless to say I’m very happy and wonder if other users have found the same to be true?

Of course the current trend on the Canon forum to compare Canon to Nikon…sorry to disappoint you.
