these things belong in a museum (well, trashcan really)

5D, although offering okay RAW files, is so hopelessly outdated it's not even funny to work with. It's an enormous dust magnet, it's dog slow in like, everything, AF is mediocre, the LCD looks like a stamp from the dark middle ages…. and it's not even a dirt cheap camera!

I've disposed of my 5DmkI units when I could and I don't like to be reminded about that full frame 20D dust sucker. It might have been okay at its time, but so were other horrible things in human history.
