I have been a canon user for almost 4 years and I am one of the satisfied user of Canon EOS 400D. But my camera is now going old. I am looking for information about the best canon camera nowadays and this canon camera came number 1 in  flickr. I am referring to Canon EOS 5D Mark II Digital SLR Camera with Canon EF 24-105mm IS lens, there are lots of photographer fascinated and satisfied with the works of Canon EOS 5D Mark II. Hope someday I can replace my EOS 400 D with this one, as of this time my camera came # 7 from Flickr users ( among canon camera ).
