The 5D Mark I was a great landscape camera but...

... I do agree that the focusing left something to be desired. After getting a Nikon D200 I found out what focusing should be. Now on the Sony a900 the focusing is light years ahead of what I had on the original 5D. Since I used the 5D mainly for landscapes I did end up getting another one after being disappointed with my first one. For landscapes, the 5D is an amazing camera, especially considering it's 3 or 4 years old. For kids running around a playground? Have fun nailing the focus!

I really hope for Canon's sake that they improved the AF on the 5DII or they are in for a 1DIII type fiasco.
