So today I received my Canon 5D Mark II and had a chance to play with it a little bit.  I havent processed any photos taken with it, but will tomorrow, I promise.  

Its low light performance is spectacular so far, and I have been able to take shots I would never have been able to take before with my Xti. It is an entirely different beast.  I cant say enough about it, its a night and day upgrade. I purchased the kit with the 24-105 f4L lens, and I have to say that the combination yields stunning bokeh, and incredibly sharp images. The lcd on the back is a beautiful thing.  The shutter is nearly silent compared to my xti, and I think its quieter by far than any other camera I've used or heard used. 

I did try video mode, but I just filmed my dog and nobody wants to see that so I'll just delete that and make a better video tomorrow to post with the snapshots. 

On a different note, I revised my website and welcome everyone to give it a look and drop me a note to let me know what you think.  The link is http://www.morgaliphoto.com
