    Can someone tell me how this camera will improve my pictures while
    pulverizing my bank account?

    That's easy -- get a bigger bank account.

    But my point is, doesn't the "old" 5D do all that? Why the 5DII?

    Well, there's the video thing...

    With all those Canon lenses out there, a guy could put some pretty crazy
    segments together...

    Take Care,

    Maybe Canon should have charged three times as much, like Nikon, so
    that they could convince more people that flaws are assets.

    The 5D2 has less read noise (about a stop less at ISO 100, and 1.5 stops
    less at ISO 1600 and greater), almost a half stop less shot noise at all
    ISOs, and more resolution (which means finer bayer artifacts, and less
    effect of AA filters).

    The 5D is aging technology that was very inneficient at the time of its
    release, made up for only by the large sensor area.
