Anybody who wants the 6D or 5D3 and wants his 5D2 replaced, just tell me.  I'll be happy to give a new home to your 5D2 at of course your very friendly price.  I promise to take good care of it and shoot better pictures.  I had fun with my 500D but my wife is already asking me to give it to her.  I can't afford those new bodies on the block and will gladly settle at a 5D2 at a very good price.  Please???

The 5D Mark II was my second DLSR - the 30D was the first one- but it was and still is my money making machine. I have it for over 3 years now and it has been working without a glitch since day one.

All my images in my wedding photography blog www.andrei-morar.ro.blog were taken with the 5D Mark II.

Needless to say I ABSOLUTELY LOVE my 5D Mark II and hope to use it for many years to come!

I think Canon have an early sales issue with the 6D, it's very close to the spec of a 5DII and lightly used S/H copies are selling at a lot below the retail price of the 6D. Sure, once all the 5DII's have changed hands I'm sure the 6D will look more palatable, especially after it's 6 month price drop :D

It's quite amazing for a camera model to survive 4 years and still going strong; this is the digital age, after all. However, it really is impressive when you still go to events and see a bunch of 5D2 in the hands of people who share the same passion for photography.

If there's any digital camera model that is worth to be called a classic, this is the one.

Fellow 5DII owners....

... This is a historic camera. It has not only wowed photographers, but it ushered in the era of DSLR video for the big screen.

This camera may be a collectors item many years from now, and who knows what a good working copy will be worth?

Remember the first Apple portable computers (if you accept the premise that a 20lb suitcase is "portable")?
Good copies have fetched over $25000 from collectors.

The 5DII is an iconic camera. Owning one is owning a piece of cinema history.
