5d is a smart camera, will be interesting to see what Canon rolls out.

Kevin Scott has gotten some cracking shots with his.

interesting, I figured they would have based it on the 50d's sensor.

Well, if it lives up to the specification (it probably will) the competition are going to have to work hard to match it.
But as sure as night follows day, they will, until the next model !
Let's face it, it is thanks to Canon and Nikon and their intense competition that digital photography has moved so far so quickly.
For internet use, these top of the range cameras are now, IMHO, way beyond the quality we need,. But will that stop them ?
I doubt it

For most other uses as well actually. I still remember the days (because they were not so long ago) that 6mp was the ultimate camera. And really when you dont blow your prints up to extremes it does just fine.

That doesnt mean 15 or 20mp opens up some new extreme possibilities Smile

I think the video option is pretty lame. I am sure some fanboys will chime in, but you are either serious about still or video, not both at the same time.

You need the right tool for the job, not a compromise.

It seems many of the threads I am reading about the 5DII is that the auto focus system hasn't been upgraded?

Who needs 51 or 42 focus points, just the one has always served me well. AF speed is a different matter

Video doesnt interest me either, they should have spent that R&D money on something else

I have found moving around the auto focus point to be very usefull when shooting in a studio with a shallow depth of field. It allows me to focus on closer objects not in the center of the frame. It depends on where I want the focus of the shot to be.

For aviation? 1 is plenty, but why limit myself to strictly airplane shots? Big grin

Or you could just focus on the object, recompose, and then take the shot.
