Canon EOS 5D is probably the cheapest full frame camera available on the second hand market today. It is no longer manufactured and replaced by much more advanced EOS 5D Mark II, but you can get one second hand for a very good price. Camera is built very well, it has very solid magnesium alloy body and shutter that has MTBF of 100,000 clicks (by today's standards cameras of this class usually have more durable shutters, for example 5D MkII has MTBF of 150,000 clicks, but still for its time...

I am an amateur who got into digital photography 3 years ago. I bought the 20D this year but decided I needed a second camera when sat with a long zoom in a hide - action happens all over and I can't keep changing lenses. I'm a canon man because I now have their lenses and other EOS attachments, so I considered the new 400D and the 30D as second cameras. In the end I was impressed by the 5Ds write ups and the desire to be able to produce close to professional images. The 5D can produce the... (read more)

The Canon EOS 5D is a first class digital camera when used with the Canon specified lenses for this camera.
Image quality is superb, without producing too much unnatural, unwanted, over the top contrast and resolution. (read more)
