Just read an interesting commentary on the 5D mk ii from Paul Myers of the Brooks Institute – he called it “Inappropriate Comments About the Revolutionary Canon 5d Mark II”
He covers a lot of the common comments about the 5D mk ii, including the manual video issues and some good input on the audio. But don't think that this is just your normal ‘review' – he's got some really good comments and a slightly different viewpoint on several of them.
I highly recommend you give this a read!
The only negative about the whole story is that he didn't list planet5d as a resource – what's with that? LOL!
