Well, it was bound to happen right? A feature film shot entirely on the 5D mk ii!
I suspect too that there are several vying for this title of “First 5D mk ii Feature Film” but this one has its own site and has posted a teaser (the full trailer is due April 15th). The teaser on vimeo tho states that the whole film “will be shot” – so it doesn't seem like the whole movie has been completed. Further investigation finds (from this thread on cinema5d) that the trailer was shot in the last week and there's also discussion of the whole “First” idea. I also found this blog post about the movie.
They're going all out on promotion already as well – they have a Facebook fan page set up which includes lots of stills from the shoot.
You can see the large size on the site and there's a version out on youtube where you can see it in 30fps, but here's the vimeo version (note vimeo automatically converts to 24fps):

Searching for Sonny is about three bumbling friends who go back to their high school reunion and get sucked into a small town murder mystery that seems eerily like a play from high school.
