Next time you want to say that this is an image that the 5D2 could not have gotten, be more careful.

My comment stands. I have shot lots of skiing and other sports with all the DSLRs I've owned, including the 5D2. The 5D3 has the highest keeper ratio, hands down. You might get that image with a 5D2 if you used the center point, zoomed out, and then cropped heavily, but you'd end up with about 10mp or so, and deeper DOF. Seeing as this image is now a 20x30" poster in that boy's room, I'm glad it was 22mp and not cropped.

There is a reason the 5D3 exists and has the 61pt AF system. You can choose not to believe it if it makes you feel better about not owning one.

Whats the point? Have you owned a recent model 1D? You'll get better "keeper rate" with that then the 5D3... The question is if the $$$$$ spent upgrading is worth it. To most current 5D2 owners, the answer is no....
