Is everyone really expecting it to be that much different from a MKII?

Might be a few disappointed folks...

Not everyone is upgrading from a 5D2.  If you are upgrading from a xxD, you will probably not be disappointed...no matter what.

ISO? 61pt AF? Yea, you're right... Prob no difference at all :o, prob just chuck it in the bag and forget about it.

So you're not going to test it out? Do a little comparision of your own? Interesting, even when I bought my copies of the mkII I tested them out. Since I have few 5DmkII, 7D's, and 5DmkIII... I will def be looking into the comparisons. My 35L will most likely be the workhorse for testing, followed by either the 100mm Mac or 135.

135 F/2L

This is going to be my first as well. Love this lens on my 5d2, I'm sure with the 5 double-X points it'll be super accurate (if no MF is needed).
5D mark 2, 5D mark 3, EF 17-40mm f/4L,  EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM, EF 135mm f/2L, EF 85mm f/1.8
Film Cameras: Mamiya RB67, RB-50, RB-180-C, RB-90-C, RB-50, Perkeo I folder, Mamiya Six Folder (Pre-WWII model)

I started testing with a 50mm 1.4 and my cat. Shot at F2.2 1/200 12,800 iso no flash.



100% crop:


I picked up a 70-200 2.8 today and used that as well. Still waiting for for my kit w/24-105 from amazon. Wish I had ordered that from my local store too.

I'll probably test it with my 16-35 2.8L III- - (doesn't exist yet -- I have the II), but since the camera is taking so long to arrive . . .

It's going to be my 35L first !!!

I going to take some high ISO shots with my Tamron 18-270mm ! I've got the 50mm f/1.8 on order too, I figure the extra stops will help in low light.

I've ordered it with the 24-70 mk II ... so I'll give that a whirl.

Calumet UK are showing it 'in stock' for the 24-105 ... but not for the body or the other zoom kit?

Either the 24-105 f/4L that comes with it or my 70-200 f/2.8L.

Considering I have a 50D now, I don't really care if it's much different from a 5D Mk II.  8)
