Having shot with the Canon EOS 5Dii now for nearly 4 years, I can honestly say I got my money’s worth. Im conservatively estimating over 250,000 shots and it is still just chugging away. The full frame sensor and reasonable cost (Just over $2000 now) means this is one of the most affordable professional portrait and wedding photography cameras out there. Rich colors, reasonably low ISO noise, great video features. If you are primarily a portrait or video shooter and cannot afford the Canon 5Diii this would be a very solid choice. I am currently still using mine as my primary scuba diving dSLR.
