As of now everyone seems to be in love with the new 5D Mk II, so I'll complain a bit. My two biggest gripes about my old trusty 5D are 1. the position of AF points in the viewfinder (too central), and 2. mirror lockup hidden in custom functions. The mirror lockup becomes especially tiring if you also want to set and re-set custom white balance. Every indication is that the 5D MKII is, in these two regards, unchanged. Further, less irritating but also apparently unchanged: the focus points' active area seems to be larger than indicated, or shift at close focus (or both); and the exposure compensation/meter scale is restricted to +/-2 stops, which isn't always enough. And while I'm complaining, I might add that the landscape sample image posted on canon japan looks distinctively P&S-like. Plenty of color fringing near borders and little texture in the low-contrast, darker areas. A border crop of the landscape sample image from Canon Japan is attached for illustration.
