    Mine came on monday. Can’t wait for it to stop raining. Waiting for CS4 so that I can play with raw without using the cannon software. Any ideas if they will make raw 5.2 work with cs3?

    I am oh so happy to see the apparent lack of noise at 6400. incredible!

    will you post a video when you get a chance??

    Not sure when I will actually get around to using the video feature – but if and when – sure…

    For now I am excited for the high ISO and full frame. YAY! I cannot wait to play more.

    Just got mine today too! Can’t wait to play with it. Will expect Jodi to be our expert on it and teach us something! 😉 I ordered mine on Saturday at Best Buy and was at the store for pick up today. The store said they had only rec’d a few and couldn’t keep them in stock. Best Buy has a free Reward Zone program from which they send you coupons for free $ to use in the store based on your purchases plus coupons. I got 10% off my 5D Mark II. Sweet!!! (I kinda sound like an ad for Best Buy but what can I say … I love saving $$ any way I can!)

    Oooo! I am totally green with envy! Saving my pennies but it will be a while…

    Have fun with your new best buddy!

    Oh that is just amazing – I dont think I necessarily care about video on a DSLR (I do have my new Canon HV30 for that), but ISO6400… sigh. Sure hope my biz can profit enough to make the 5D Mark II my new best friend.

    Congrats on the new camera. It looks like a great one. Have you noticed any issue regarding the “black dots” problem with this camera. I have read reports and seen some photos where highlights at higher ISOs will show as black dots.

    My resolution would be to master natural light and my functions on manual. I shoot in manual but I know I have the potiential to be a 100 times better. Practice makes perfect … Happy Holidays all ~
