Canon EOS 5D review

 

Canon's latest full-frame device is the cheapest of its kind

Full-frame view (incompatible with EF-S) ; Great image quality ; Good low-light performance

Heavy Some handling niggles ; Bit pricey

It's not cheap, but the fullframe EOS 5D delivers consistently fantastic images, even in poor lighting

Canon EOS 5D

 

Canon's EOS 5D is a 12.8Mp (megapixel) D-SLR, or digital single-lens reflex, designed for serious enthusiasts and professionals. It's the first affordable D-SLR with a full-frame sensor, widely considered to be the Holy Grail of digital photography.

Canon's EOS 5D is the most affordable full-frame D-SLR yet, allowing lenses to be used without affecting their field of view. At £2,539 for the body alone, it's quite a premium to pay even considering the 12.8Mp resolution. But if you curse the cropped...

The website Cameralabs has has the good idea to confront the first 5D to its successor, the new-generation 21-megapixel camera, the EOS 5D MKII.

You do however get what you pay for and the EOS 5d is no exception. The full screen CCD and build quality wins for me but, I’m not a professional so I may just be tempted to move down the range slight to say the 450D and spend the extra money on that...
