  1. Why Brandon Berg ditched his 30D for the 5D
  2. The Canon 5D vs Canon 20D in matters of DOF (depth-of-field) — view 3 crops comparing 5D, focal length of 100mm @ f/2.8, vs 20D, focal length of 50mm @ f/1.4, vs 5D, focal length of 85mm @ f/1.8. The 5D also has much lower noise, even at ISO1000.
  3. The 5D has better dynamic range, and yields sharper images, than the Canon 10D and 20D.
  4. Autofocus performance; 5D vs Canon 30D: The 5D is much faster in AF, making it more suitable for sports / children activities.
  5. More pixels for cropping: If choosing the 5D over the Canon 30D, this is an important factor to consider.
