Can't you (or a Canon service center) reinstall the original software/firmware if something goes wrong?

It doesn't replace the Canon firmware. It runs alongside side it off of the CF card. It doesn't install anything "into" your camera, so shouldn't be a problem.

Really enjoy mixing these 3 lenses on my 7D & 5DII:

24mm f/1.4 II
40mm f/2.8
135mm f/2

Wow at 23 you can afford some seriously sweet gear! What kind of (if any) discount do you get working in a camera store?

Jill-e makes a whole line of fashionable bags :)

My time is very valuable to me, so if a piece of new gear will allow me to spend less time in front of the computer, and more time with my family, it is definitely worth it.

Check out some of Philip Bloom's "People" videos. I think "Dublin's People", and "Sofia's People" were shot with that lens on 5DII's. Beautiful studies.

I have the most success shooting my speedlights with my camera on M. The shutter speed now really only affects the ambient light- which gives you a ton of creative control. The aperture/ ISO will affect the intensity of the flash.

I'd fix the slight lens distortion so the vertical lines aren't all wonky. Then tweak the crop. Finally, adding a little mid-tone contrast (to taste) can add a little more "pop" to the individuals. But that  is a taste issue.

Good "sports" lens :)

I don't think the price can go any lower. If Canon launches a 2K FF camera, I'd assume they would immediately discontinue the 5DII. The result could then raise the 5DII's price from smaller dealers. Just look what happened to the 24-70L as soon as it was discontinued!

Also, what if Canon releases a 2K FF camera that has worse build quality than the 5DII & no changeable focusing screen?

This thread makes me sad. Why are you people running so many tests with your lenses to determine absurd things like sharpness? What does that even mean? And what is the point of it?

Can I ask why you would want to buy / use a lens that has an adjustable aperture at only the "mythical sweet spot"? Aren't you limiting your creative control?

Wait, so someone who sent in a 5DII got a 1D mkIV back?
