    Coles Notes of the review seems to be:

    Well the Nikon was better in almost everything, but the canon does 1080p video, so it wins automatically.

    The Nikon is about $400 more in Canada too, that's a lot but what it really comes down to is if you have Canon glass the 5D rocks and the same if you have Nikon glass.

    I just can't praise that camera enough, I absolutely love mine. Nikon's lack of availability for some of their lenses is a different story though...:pissed:

    Manual focus only, auto-exposure only, with an LCD viewfinder - I know that's my dream come true. :rofl:

    I've been shooting with a 5DMkII quite a bit lately, and I must say that I absolutely love the high ISO/low light capabilities of the camera - both in still and video. I'm getting one for myself, it is just a matter of when. :)

    It isn't a "continuous" AF but there is autofocus when shooting video.

    Sure, that's what every video needs, autofocus hunting... And the built in mic picking it all up.
