Rating:The Canon 5D is now a modern classic. It was the first Prosumer Canon full frame digital SLR that most keen amateurs could afford and it rewarded them with smooth 12.8 megapixel files. The area where if wasn't so strong were focusing and frame rate. It struggles in low-light to focus and chugs along at a poor frame rate of around 3fps. This camera was a benchmark for Canon and certainly there are many still going strong to this day on their second and third shutters. Affectionately referred to as the Canon EOS 5D Mark I.
