Was the 5D2 a lemon?

To read DPR back then you’d think it was. Thread after thread after thread of “banding” discussions and talk of ‘crippled’ autofocus.  Like overhearing, those were both real issues.  And, like overhearing, they cause actual rather than imagined problems for only a small slice of users

I admit the 5DIV is a superior camera, but the 5D2 was a great camera in its day. And it was a huge success for Canon.
