Once Canon’s megapixel king, it now shares that throne with the newer, and far less expensive, EOS 5D Mark II. Awesome image quality in a bulletproof body—at a high cost in both weight and dollars. A favorite of nature and studio shooters both.

Standout Spec: Medium-format-caliber imaging from a (sort of) 35mm body.
