My Perspective On The 5DII Video:

I saw Vincent's video, nice work. Nice low light performance from the 5DII.

However, in response to the video, I think messages like:

"I am so happy that I got 5DII on order!" or "Naysayer, take THAT!"

Those are, frankly, foolish.

This clip was made by a professional, with 20 times the cost of the camera in lenses and other equipment. More than two dozen people worked on it, with many many hours of footage that was edited with powerful editing software/hardware. Many DAYS of work has gone into making this short clip.

Of course, the camera performs really well. But we should not fool ourselves. Statements from people like the above I mentioned goes to show how well the Canon campaign actually works. It is like seeing a supercomputer at work and saying, "Oh thank GOD that I was early to order that keyboard!".
