It is a great camera both for stills and video. I have lenses for it I have never used and should be explored. I did shoot part of the snow video with it & having found a way to view the files on my HD TV was blown away by the quality. So, more stills and video with the 5D MkII.
My second photographic resolution involves this post.
Over the new year I visited a friend of mine who had recently returned from a trip to Australia. I had recommended the Panasonic GH1 to him as a combined video and stills camera.
However his GH1 was minus one of the lugs holding the strap lock to the camera. It had just come away. Since then I have discovered that this is not an isolated problem.
Having seen the problem first hand, I was astonished at how flimsy the holding lug was. Its very shallow & fitted to the camera by inserting and twisting. This could obviously lead to a dropped, and smashed, camera.
