    My newest toy arrived yesterday and I didn't have time to play with it much but I did shoot a test shot at iso 6400. I gotta say, it frigging blew me away! the file looks cleaner than my 1Ds mk II or 5D at 1600 iso!

    The only downside is that I have to buy more CF cards to hold all the magical pixals! I also had to upgrade to the latest version of LR but I'd been meaning to do that anyway.

    I'll upload a pic tonight.

    I'll see what I can do later tonight. Bear in mind however that photobucket degrades the image quality so the only real way to see the goodness is for me to make each of you a CD with images on it.

    Or you can all come over to my house and I'll show you.

    Welcome to the 5D2 club. I love mine. So glad I spent the money. I would have regretted it by settling for anything less.

    Does 5D2 use the same AF module as 5D? I think I remember reading something about that but my memory on that is fuzzy.

    I'm not shooting video with this.....yet. I just got it yesterday! Most likely, I won't do a whole lot of video work with it. That would be too much like my real job.

    the auto focus is way too slow to be of any real use for video.

    manual works good with the live view zoom feature, but this is only useful for static subjects.
