Re: So basically, a pretty decent camera for £300, considering what £300 buys you in other camera's

You won't regret it. I bought a 5D last weekend (only cost me 420 Euro) and I was very impressed by the IQ compared to my Sony NEX 5n. At first I only bought the 50mm f1.4 but because of the good results I already invested in a 24-105mm f4 (very sharp zoomlens).

Even at ISO 3200 you will get a pleasant kind of grain/noise that still gives you nice results after some post processing.

sometime just digout old 5D photos and re-processed to give new life. I have tons of them processed earlier by DPP and need to find a time to import and reprocess in LR4. they are still good by today's standard.

two straight from 24-105L point and shoot w/o using any filters.

BTW, people are embracing two feet blizzard snow (3 ft in Boston area) in my area (southern CT) from this morning to tomorrow afternoon. I really miss tis sub-tropical paradise, Bahama
