but I can make due until Canon delivers a camera more suitable.

A camera for static subject matter that will appeal to the broadest base of photographers will need 30MPs or more, greater DR, full bracketing options, 100% VF, GPS (that doesn't hog the hotshoe), internal electronic level, and a cure for the low ISO banding.

The 5D2 has none of this. The 5D3 made good strides in fixing the opertional shortcomings of the 5D2.

Hi all!

Do you think that 5dII has everything you need for Landscape photography? If you had the bucks to change to 5DIII, would you buy 5DIII or invest it in lens?

I am going FF since I´ve got a 1DIV and need the wide angle view, so I am deciding to buy a 5DII or a 5DIII (no 6D). If I go with 5DII I won´t get an used 5DII because it´s a “small” difference in price (about 400€) but a big difference with the warranty (I work in wet and harsh places, so I better have a warranty).

Thanks for your responses.
