No reason to wait for a 6D

I just bought it  and you might better hurry:



This is a terrific deal for a brand new 5D2 with Canon USA warranty.

$2600 shipped

  • -$400 Canon rebate
  • -$52 ebay bucks refund
  • -$800 sell brand new 24-105L on craigslist
  • -$150 sell Pixma Pro Mark II printer on craigslist

Net cost for a 5D2 = $1198

Not bad for a brand new full frame digital SLR.  That's cheaper than an EOS 7D, or Sony A77, or Olympus OMD-EM5.  There's no reason why anybody should even wait for the 6D.  The 5D2 may have an older sensor, but it's more appealing in many other ways:

  • Max shutter speed of 1/8000 sec (vs. 1/4000)
  • Magnesium alloy shell (vs. plastic top plate)
  • 15 AF points in AI Servo mode (vs. 11 points)
  • Joystick interface (vs. directional pad)
  • Uses Compact Flash cards (vs. SD cards)
  • 98% Viewfinder Coverage (vs. 95% coverage)
