Yeah, thanks, I was on my cell, and sadly the Samsung S2 is too crappy to copy and paste a link without shutting down,  ;D

psssst.....

They haven't made any for a long while, only protected distribution by keeping them "current" on the web. 

No fact to support it, but it could well be that there were no 5D2's made after the 5D3 cranked up for production.

One thing though - they made a whooooole helluva lot of 5D2's, and I couldn't be happier with mine.

Mine has been officially 'discontinued' too - I just sold it a few weeks ago while I could still get a decent penny for it!  That was the only reason I sold it, though.  Great pro-sumer camera!

I'll keep using my 1D MKIV until whatever comes after the 1D X gets here (yes, I'm patient).

Most interesting thing to me is that the EOS 1V is still alive.

$1699 new at B&H, film not included.

The used market is absolutely swamped with quality used 5D2's

I would happily buy another or even 2 since it's easy to find them for less than £1,000 and even £900 but that money is saved for new glass!
