Had an early 5D2, got some good shots with it but its low ISO files had pattern noise in midtones and shadows were even worse if pushed.
My first Nikon was a D5100 and the low ISO raw files from it were vastly cleaner.
D800 came out and I was on the order list for it and the e model after I tested some raw files from it.
Both of those cameras thoroughly blow away any Canon for clean low ISO work.
The 5d2 was promptly trash-binned along with most L lenses I had for it.
7D & a 60D went next for the same reason.
Canon hasn't had a penny from me in years, Nikon, then Pentax and now Fuji (and maybe even Olympus) get all my $ now.
They're more satisfying tools for when I want that kind of image quality.
I haven't experienced any lack of adequate glass to put on them either.
Aglet, after a Post like this, why in the world would you bother Posting 730 times on a Canon Camera Gear forum, I'm curious.
I purchased the Nikon D5100 as a first Camera for my youngest son, at the same time I owned the 5DMK II & 1DMK IV, I'm again confused how you couldn't get a decent Image out of the 5DMK II, but could out of the D5100, not to say the D5100 isn't a decent little Camera, it is, but better then the 5DMK II ?? I think you may have left a reasonable amount of common sense behind when making that statement, or perhaps you just didn't like the colour of the 5DMK II and preferred the colour of the D5100 ?? that would make sense, sort of.
And you "Trash Binned" Canon L Lenses ?? Ummmm, I think that borders on complete rubbish as well.
Maybe Nuero has it right, you just monitor CR so you can vent on all that Canon Rubbish Camera Bodies & L Lenses, you might try needle point as a new hobby, maybe more your sort of thing.
I'm sure Olympus are just so excited that at some point when your tired of Nikon, Fuji & Pentax (after all Canon are trash binned & done), it'll be their turn for some those Aglet dollars.
