5.0 out of 5 stars Wedding photographers' favourite, 28 July 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canon EOS 5D Digital SLR Camera (incl. EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens Kit) (Camera)
The Canon 5D must be one of the most popular DSLR camera for wedding photographers since its launch. Its full frame and good noise control at high ISO are main reasons why wedding photographers love this camera.

In 2008 this camera is starting to show its age, with Nikon's D3 now surpassing it for noise control.

While there are newer cameras with better features, the 5D's price is now at such a low level, and even with rumours that Canon is launching its replacement sometime this year, the 5D is still selling like hot-cakes to wedding photographers who thinks it's good enough and definitely a bargain at the current prices (approx £1200 for the body).

The 24-105mm lens in this kit is L spec, which means it has Canon's professional optics and has a rubber ring around the metal lens mount to help keep dust and moisture out. The captured image is top notch too, and far sharper than anything non-L or any 3rd party lenses I've ever used. The 24mm end is pretty wide on the 5D since it doesn't have any crop factor to take into consideration. If used on a Canon cropped sensor body (eg 40D) then it will give an equivalent of a 38.4mm which is not very wide.

As mentioned, Nikon has upped the game with high ISO, but all the wedding photographers using with Canon lenses that I know of still swear by the 5D.
