    LOL, I found this line pretty funny: "If anything, the 3.9FPS rate is too fast, and I wish the 5D Mark II had a menu setting to give a Cs rate of about 3 FPS. Since the 5D Mark II only runs at Ch, I often fire two shots when I really only wanted one. "

    You have to remember this is the guy who could take over the photography world with nothing but a D40x. 3.9 FPS is blinding speed! :lol:

    Interesting...

    Does anyone here use the "MEDIUM" setting? I wonder if there's any truth to this.

    Evidently sarcasm escapes some people.

    I don't even waste my time with his "reviews", "reports", "b.s."....whatever you want to call them. There are many, many better places with a wealth of knowledge.

    It's a lovey-dovey, fawning review of the 5D Mark II. He'll probably get some click-through sales from the review, so he can support his growing family.

    Yeah that's the problem. The guy is a joke but people don't get it. Ultimately you end up with people new to photography running around with Canon 5D MkIIs set to Medium because he's the first hit in google.

    Either that or you get wedding photographers with a D40 + kit lens.

    If his site gave safety tips then he'd be outright dangerous.

    I don't know what you guys are talkin about.

    I think Ken's reviews are to the point without all the fluff... one of the best resources out there.
