Marin, have you gotten a different focusing screen for your 5DII? If so, which one?

You Canon users need to be afraid: Ken Rockwell just admitted that with the newest firmware, he absolutely loves the 5D Mark II
post #7173 of 29539
Ken Rockwell is a troll. We only listen to him because his photographs are super amazing.

The 5D MkII would be my next body, though. I've always wanted a 5D.

What he writes about taking photographs is good. What he writes about camera equipment (other than how he uses it) is pretty much just opinion. Like how nobody needs more than 8MP. Why? His camera has 8MP. Obviously since that's what he has nobody needs more, right?

He does generally qualify his statement with the clause that X mp is good enough presuming your not printing larger than x by y. His P&S reviews are also very consistent, I find.

That's true. Maybe for the most part what he says is true, but it's just the wacky things he says that make me think he's a little bit weird.

For someone who's been in the field for what... 25-30 years, he takes horrible photographs. His specs are usually spot on though. I use his site to compare or get basic info on out of date, unpopular today glass.

After reading his ruminations about using tripods, I've given up hope on him altogether.
