Picked up the body as a second body due to price point. For the money it is a perfect body. The AF on it is lightning fast especially paired with "L" series glass. The resolution is very impressive, even at tight crops. At high ISO's things can get a bit noisy, but can typically be compensated for. This body is a perfect upgrade from a Rebel series for those looking to make the next step, or a great first purchase for someone looking to start into photography with a higher budget. But it also makes for a great back up for a pro as well.
Final thought: A great addition to the Canon line up and I would hesitate to buy another.
