Re: Still a good choice to get a used (almost unused) 5D MI?

I love mine. I use it professionally still and find it useful for weddings, landscapes, portraits and even use it for the occasional sport/wildlife shoot, though it wouldn't be my first choice in those two applications.

I came from a 10D to the 5D, so I find the autofocus and ISO performance to be fantastic. With Lightroom 3, it's useable at 3200.

The advantages of the 5D II are there, but they're not as important to me as they might be to someone else - I didn't find enough value there to upgrade. The original 5D produces fantastic photos capable of being printed at very large sizes with great colours and fine detail.
