The article is particularly interesting because he had considered getting a 5D Mark II over a year ago, but ended up buying a Sony EX3.
I went with the EX3 and have never regretted that choice.
Nevertheless, I always – of course, like everybody else – was striving for a filmic look on some jobs and projects. At that point already I decided that a DoF adapter like e.g. a Letus wasn’t the way to go for me. I don’t want to loose more light and is an overall too bulky setup to use on a regular basis.
To make a long story short: I decided a while ago that I needed an additional camera for a different purpose to supplement my EX3 setup. And I think I might have waited long enough with the purchase – because I just found my future camera with the new Canon EOS 550D (or Rebel T2i, how it’s called in the US).
He concludes that if you don't have a HD DSLR you should buy this camera. And even if you do have a 5D or 7D you should buy this camera; it's "the perfect back-up camera."
