As expected, Canon Japan has announced the retirement of the EOS-5D MK II DSLR full frame camera. The recently introduced EOS-6D has basically replaced the MK II with so many new features and improvements. Click here for a review of the EOS-6D camera.
For those who still want a EOS-5D MK II, there are still some inventory left and can be bought for a very reasonable price. Also one can buy a refurbished MK II from the Canon USA Store. This is an excellent way to save some money and get equipment indistinguishable from new. I have bought refurbished equipment before and I am happy with them. Take a look at my post discussing refurbished equipment.
