It means some people still like out-of-focus photography.  :o
Or conversely, that some people know how to use their camera.  The 5D MK II is one of the most accurately focusing cameras Canon has made, at least for the center point.  I have had two of them, and both have very accurate autofocus.

It means buy the 5DmkII now. The new 'consumer' level FF is going to be a step backward. At least.

Mark my words.
In landscape photography, when you shoot is more important than where.

Gear: Canon 5DmkII, 17-40mm f/4 L, 50mm f/1.4, 70-200mm f/4.

If you can still buy them new now, and you really want one, now is the time to buy.  I wouldn't want to be buying used in 2 years.  Get one new now for a really low price.

I bought the 5DII after the price dropped and the 5DIII was out... It works like an auto focus camera should- I put the boxy thingy in my viewfinder on my subject, push the button, and get a magical in-focus photo! OMG! And I didn't even "micro adjust" my lens with a fancy test thing. This photography is easy. I think I'm gonna go pro.
