- Cheapest 5D MkII?
I have been watching them for an age (price alert on Reevoo) and the offers seem to be pretty static….
… until just before Christmas that is – John Lewis were doing body + lens (24-105 F2.8 Canon lens) for £1600. I almost let aout a little bit of sex wee and tried to buy it before they changed their mind. Fortunately I realised at the last minute that the picture was wrong and it was the body only.

As someone who owns multple Canon bodies, I would strongly urge you to go straight to the 5D3 if you’re set on full frame.
I obviously can’t ignore the price differential bit the AF is excellent and the low noise capabilities pliss all over just about anything else.
It’s what the 5D2 should have been, 7D features with decent AF, in a full frame body.
The day after I got mine, I rattled off 8000+ frames shooting a marathon and have probably done about 50000 frames now. I guess I’ve taken about 3000 ‘full frame’ shots in that total.Posted 5 years agom1keaMember
How ya mean you’ve taken 3000 ‘full frame’ shots on that total?
Sorry, by that I mean shots that you pay the price premium of a full frame body for; landscapes, etc.
Despite having had a 7D for nearly three years, I still don’t like the IQ and the AF can be err variable. The 5D3 is massive overkill for running, cycling and triathlon events but IMO the IQ and so far, accuracy, is far superior to the ‘sports’ 7D.
Looking at it another way I didn’t think the 5D2 was sufficient upgrade from the 5D to warrant the expense. Pretty much all of the photos I’ve got on Panoramio were taken with my 5D.
Can’t wait to take some proper shots with my 5D3.
