I got mine yesterday afternoon, so I haven't had much time to toy with it.
But I walked around in my neighborhood for about an hour with it last night with my nifty fifty. I left when it was still light out and made it back when it was dark. It shoots really well in low light. (I'm coming from at t3i so this camera is going to sound amazing to me, I'm not sure about 5d Mark ii users, but I think you may enjoy it as a full frame uprgade from your t2i)
What kai said in his review for digital rev is pretty on key too. I think if you're coming from a 5d, you probably won't be blown away. But for those upgrading from the rebel series will like it. I love that All the buttons are accessible by the right hand. Its light, simple, and quick. but it feels way better than the t3i in my hands, but not quite as bulky as a 5d. (but they are pretty close). It's a nice camera to hold when you're on the go.
I can run around like a crazed lunatic in the woods and take photos with one hand, so its perfect for me. The wifi is pretty cool too, haven't messed with it too much, but i did control it with my droid.
thats all I got at the moment. I probably wont get to toy around with it until the weekend (blast ye work!!!!)
But i'm starting to see reviews surfacing, so I wouldn't rush into anything. Get the camera thats best suited for your needs. I like landscape/city photos, and also like to shoot video. So I'm pleased with it so far.
I thought the autofocus worked pretty well. It could be better, but I usually like to keep it on manual focus anyway because I'm cool/stupid like that. It may not be the best for action photos, but if you're someone that likes to take their time setting up landscape shots, it should work fairly well.
