I've shot in heavy rain with my 7D and no issues. I have no qualms doing so again with the 5D3.

Neuro. You did not answer my question, do you understand - and read again what I asked
Underexposing, head room , bring in high lights more than 4 stops above middle grey
If you understand this we take lesson 2
Certainly, I understand. But no one is asking for theoretical 'lessons'. Rather, both me and privatebydesign are asking for actual examples of images 'ruined' by the FPN of the 5DII, and some idea of the frequency at which the low ISO FPN renders real-world images unusable.
How come the 5D2 IQ was impeccable before the D800? I find it still impeccable today. :|it was not when it was released
it is not much better after all the firmware updates
it made a big splash being the first CHEAP full-frame and those who wanted or needed that were so enthused with this new toy they paid little regard to its IQ shortcomings because it offered IQ benefits and features previously unavailable.
Endlessly trumpeting on that basis suckered me in to buying one; my most regrettable Canon purchase.
not for lack of due diligence, but for lack of honest and clear information about its weaknesses, which became clear enough after I used it for a while. .. and after others began posted about its less than ideal low ISO FPN issues.
If you still find it meets your needs you either lucked out with a good one or you don't mind crushing your blacks a few more levels than some of us.
This lens is exactly how I pronounced it at release. DOA.
@RLPhoto: hey, no need to repeat that in every 20-70 f/4 IS review/comparison thread
DOA or not, let's wait for the sale figure.
Speaking of AA filters, put that on the list of things for Canon to improve, i.e. optionally get rid of...
...and I'm writing this to counter all the recent Canon bashing and flaming here, I can't find anything worth buying!
My 5D2 needs an upgrade, but the 5D3 doesn't have interchangeable focus-screens which I need for wide-aperture (manual) lenses (and the lack of improvement in the shadow noise is a bit of a let-down). The 1DX would be possible, too, but for that amount of cash I'd like 24 or 28 megapixels (with proportionally slower frame rate), everything else is great.
Since moving to full-frame the 70-200 is a bit short, but I don't want to substitute it with a less-sharp-and-inferior-IS 100-400, give me a new version already, or an updated 300 f/4, I'll take whatever comes first! And what about wide-angle, where is the 14-24 competitor, or even a 17-40 or 16-35 that's half as sharp? Where is the quality 20 IS USM to go with the 24 and 28?
And don't get me started on all the missing or crippled firmware features, some decent updates there might have pushed me to a 5D3 or 1DX, but there's no real auto-iso in m with exposure compensation, no proper way to set the min and max shutter speed or aperture in the semi-auto modes, no histogram when zoomed in like the smallest nikons do, ... ... ...
Rant finished, obviously I don't make my living from photography, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't spend some more on it, because I do shoot a lot and some things are often difficult with my current gear!

Tell me which one of the four links i haveIt is not much to own to that price, it is only ( and now Im using the word uninformed people) who think 50/1,2 is something special. good luck and Elvis is still alive, live in Motala Sweden
Had all the canon 50mm's, and the 50L is the best performing from F1.2-2.8. Its fantastic.
Provided shows that 50/1,2 is better at 2,0 than 50/1,4
Are all this 4 test humbug? Like some think about DXO Dr test
