So there is the new 5D and the 50D camera . All I have herd is how good the 5D is at high iso settings. I know it also has the hd video but I don't need that right now. I have seen lots of shots of everything but models with the 5D. I saw some on here but that's about it. So why would anyone need the 5D if it was not for high iso and video ? Is the 50D worth getting ?

If shooting in daylight can anyone tell what camera the shot came from ?

I've had the 50D since the day they came out and I absolutely love it. But I was upgrading from a 10D and the difference is amazing. Somebody upgrading from a 40D may not be as thrilled as I am. That being said, if I could have afforded the price of a 5D mark 2 that is the camera I would have bought. I'd love to be shooting full frame again. I've had the chance to shoot with the original 5D and the files out of that camera are hard to beat.

I have ordered the MarkII and can't wait for it to come in(#75 on the pre-order list). The reason is I want the full frame. I shoot quite a few weddings and if you are in a small room trying to take images of the bride it is very hard even with the 28mm lens because of the crop factor. Sometimes there is no room to back up.

Do you pay tax on it when you ordered it on line ?

The 5D MkII, which is the camera you're actually referring to, certainly has that HD video thing and the high ISOs going for it. But the original 5D is a remarkable, full-frame camera and I would highly recommend it. Especially now that the 5D's price has dropped considerably since the introduction of the MkII.

I just received my 5d Mark II to find that Photoshop CS3 does not support it and never will without using the dng converter and converting the images first. Lightroom does not support it yet either (they say theere will be an update sometime in Dec.)

Why does everything have to be so difficult?

That seems like a great reason for full frame. It makes alot of sense.
