Re: 50mm f1.8 review but no 5D II

Here's your 5D Mark II review, shouldn't be too far off:

Intro: It's been 3 years since original 5D.....
Specs: At least 10-20 places on web...do a search

Body and Design: Similar to 5D, read Canon's white paper for some evolutionary rather than revolutionary changes.
Operation and Controls: Similar to 5D, read Canon White Paper for differences.

Menus: Download Instruction Manual from Canon web site, all the menus are well illustrated and explained.

Performance: Excellent overall, autofocus has improved with digic IV but not in the same league as 1DsMkIII.
Features: You name it and it has it.
Software and Raw: Better than ever, LR2 and CS4 are very good also.
Photographic Tests: Good resolution, good color, excellent noise.

Compared to: Better than most, not as good as one (maybe the D3x but we're splitting hairs).

Conclusion: Everyone should own this camera and adapt Nikon, Contax, Leica and whatever lenses they can.
