Re: 5D vs 5D MkII (IQ)

Like others here, I was a very happy shooter with the original 5D and upgraded to the Mark II. But I have not been "wowed" by the camera. I prefer the tonality of the images from the 5d over the 5D II. It may be that the AA filter in the 5D is weaker than that of the Mark II, not sure. Have heard that several times and from my experience the Mark II lacks the 'bite' that I got from the 5D.

Sure the Live View function and better screen is appreciated. But if I had to do it over again, I'd stay with the 5D and buy more L glass.
