    A Good Fellow Camera Club and Flickr mate Richard loaned me his All-Singing-All-Dancing Super-Duper CANON EOS 5D Mk II with ONE lens 50mm EF f1.4 WoW ! I had to get him to take it off Multiple Shot as I was taking 2 of everything -- Zip Zip !! I set 'AV auto' and 'Cloudy' White Balance and 400 ASA and mostly f4 and f3.5 and got a good few snaps around Brentwood ! The LENS is very sharp ! I held camera at waist level for some 'Street Candids' so the Person would not know and the 'Auto-Focus' actually WORKED on moving People ! Here are some snaps I took --

    Careful, you’ll want one! The AF on the mk II was unchanged from the original. It got a lot better in the later versions.

    Some good shots Pete. Looks like some of the subjects spotted you.

    I still have the mark I version which I enjoy but prefer my mark iii.
