A year ago today, I got the Canon 5D Mark II digital single lens reflex (dSLR) camera.
I have been very happy with it. The image quality is great, especially in low light, and it is a lot more robust than the Rebel XS I had before. Everything about the camera is what you would expect from a machine intended for serious and intense use.
I feel like I have done a lot with the camera already, and that it has a lot of life and potential in it yet.
