Road-testing a new DSLR is always a blast, especially when the improvements go beyond a new paint job and racing stripes. Canon's new EOS 5D Mark II, a 2nd generation 5D-series digital camera, delivers a host of improvements along with the ability to shoot Hi-Def video with sound, which made the road-test experience a total blast-and-a-half.
