The 5D2 refurb looked amazing -- not a scratch or blemish. It even smelled like a brand-new unit! The body was immaculately packed; manuals, software, and accessories (strap, battery, charger, etc.) were fresh and unread/unused.

The 5D2 refurb looked amazing -- not a scratch or blemish. It even smelled like a brand-new unit! The body was immaculately packed; manuals, software, and accessories (strap, battery, charger, etc.) were fresh and unread/unused. I was doing wonderfully with it and was in heaven from the great deal that I got this refurb for...until I used it in my first studio shoot about a week into my proud ownership. The hotshoe was defective. Only 60% of my shots triggered my strobes. I put it through a crucible of tests: Pocketwizards, CyberSyncs, Skyports, Cactus, a 550EX (on-shoe), 420EX, 580EX...all producing the same results. I exchanged batteries in each of these speedlights and transmitters and receivers; yet, still only 60% of my shots worked. I returned this 5D2 refurb with the greatest of disappointment and purchased a brand-new 5D2 about a week later, and voila...no strobe problems. I think I was an odd duck in this case, as most refurbs I have purchased in the past have been excellent, fully-functional, working products. Too bad in this case! This is a good deal. Just be sure to cross your fingers...and do extensive testing as soon as you receive to make sure you got a good product!

The body was in great condition and arrived in a very timely manor. This is the first used purchase from Adorama. It will not be my last!!!
First let me say that the service was superior; I got my camera within 2 days! Also: I LOVE the features on this camera and it's ease of use. The only thing I'm not satisfied with is the fact that I haven't even had it a month and the lens quit working so I have to send it clear across the country for repairs so I'll have to go through camera withdrawals for approximately 2 weeks until I get it back. If the camera was older, I'd give it a higher rating...but it's practically brand new and already has to be sent in for a manufacture error. Other than that...It's a really GREAT camera!
The camera i've always wanted, it takes great pictures of whatever I want whenever I want with little effort. The auto mode is extremely easy to use. although I'm still learning about all of its functions so far I'm extremely happy with my purchase of the T5
I am grateful every single day I picked up this camera.
Simply the best full-frame DSLR at it class! With the extense line of Canon Lenses it is unbeatable.
Fantastic camera! All the features I was looking into having. Very excited to use for stop motion project. Easy to learn my way around this work horse!
HI. I wanted a cameras for years, I was watching QVC, and The Cannon Rebel T5 was on , I believe a good price. I'm brand new to this much camera, I'm still learning , But very happy with the basic photos I've taken. I need help with IOS and Lighting, My zoom shots are fuzzy and I need to learn how to take Fire works and Moon shots. I'm Sure I will have fun learning.. Thank you.
I was given money for a new camera and was able to purchase a used one from this site at a great price. I use my camera for portraits and weddings, have rented the mark ii before and loved it. I was anxious to see what condition it was in and I was pleasantly surprised! Minimal wear!
This camera is great in just about every way , there are a few things i would change , the 9 point AF , im not sure why in the world there is only a 9 point AF system in the 5d mark II , this camera deserves so much better , the other small thing is low light shooting , it is ok , but a lot of noise past 1600iso , other than that , depending on your lens and i recommend using a tripod unless your very stable , you get super sharp images , and the camera just feels great , yeah a little heavy and bigger than your beginner dslr , you feel like your holding a great piece of equipment , im upgrading to the 5d mark III for the extra's , but i shoot professional portraits , and i need the extra things the mark III has , if your coming from a rebel or other amateur camera , start with the mark II , get to know the camera , and see if you need the extra stuff on the mark III if you dont the mark II works great
Bought from the used dept. of Adorama. Came quickly in original box and all accessories. Looked new, felt new, got a great deal. Camera is awesome.
