The 5D2 was released crippled and lacking manual control in video mode. This was fixed
after the out cry from the community. Now three years later they do the same thing again with limiting HDMI output which would be so helpful for everyone doing serious work allowing to capture on HDMI recorders. Output is only 720p when recording and I bet you still have the focus frame in the center as well. The price is another issue, but I must be thankful to Canon at that price I am not even tempted to buy one.
