Re: Just went from 1DsII to 5DII

That's where Canon gets you, yes, the thin shell is whatever fancy alloy they used to confuse customers, but inside, it's all plastic. Plastic mirror box you know? How many actuation of the plastic mirror racking up and down before you lose focusing accuracy? for 5D1/2 it's around 20k. For 5D3, due to the shock absorbing system it's probably longer, but plastic is plastic, it is no where as durable as metal.
