This is a busy month for manufacturers and retailers at the Photokina trade show. And as promised, the giants of photography had gone all out to lure buyers for their 2009 line-up and one of the new generation of Digital Single Lens Reflex cameras to hit the scene is the Canon EOS 5-mkII.
I would deem this as the serious amateur digital imaging tool for those who want to maintain a decent budget in their equipment line-up.
With an asking price of RM9K, not many can afford this. But yet, with the credit facility made available, many amateur photographers are killing themselves just for a piece of the action.
Technical jargons aside, I think the 5-DmkII has plenty to offer in terms of field dependability and versatility.
And coupled with the proven EOS L-series lenses, this is a camera that most professionals would consider for a back-up body.
Right now, we'll just have to see how Canon Marketing Malaysia would price the body and other new accessories that comes with it..
