The 21.1MP Canon EOS 5D Mark II is one of the hottest SLR cameras released in 2008. Our partner Digital Trends just tested it and gave this Canon DSLR camera their Editors' Choice Award.
Quote from the review: "Call us excited. The new Canon EOS 5D Mark II is one of the most anticipated D-SLRs of 2008. Not only does it have a 21.1-megapixel full-frame sensor, the camera is the first in its class to record 1080p high-def video. The Nikon D90 was officially the first D-SLR to record HD clips, but it did 720p footage. We liked some aspects of the $999 D90, but as a camcorder it definitely had its flaws. Now archrival Canon has outdone the D90 with a much better imaging processor, and enhanced video capture. Of course all these goodies come with a steep price-namely $2,699 for the body alone-three times the D90--although slightly less than the $2,999 full-frame 24.6MP Sony DSLR-A900 which doesn't record video at all. At first chance we charged the battery and were off to the races."
