Let your creativity soar with world-famous Canon EF* lenses — the perfect way to complement the expressive capability of EOS 5D Mark II’s full-frame sensor. From 14mm super wide-angle to 800mm super telephoto, over 50 superb lenses assure you of the right optics for any assignment or artistic vision. The comprehensive lineup features a wide selection of IS (Image Stabilizer) lenses that vastly decrease the occurrence of blurred photos due to camera shake. Available in both zoom and fixed focal lengths, these leading-edge lenses provide hand-held shooting capability at shutter speeds up to four stops slower than with non-IS lenses.   Canon also offers lenses with Ultra Low Dispersion (UD) and Super UD fluorite elements that effectively eliminate secondary spectrum and other aberrations for extremely high-quality images. Additionally, macro and perspective control lenses give you the tools to handle specialized shooting requirements such as close-up, architecture, and product photography.

The EF lens lineup now includes the new EF24mm f/1.4L II USM. Featuring outstanding brightness and sharpness, this lens utilizes a new coating technology that vastly reduces flare and ghost.

* Except EF-S lenses

The EOS 5D Mark II is just the start of the EOS journey. A host of accessories are available to broaden your photographic capabilities, including exciting new power options like Battery Grip BG-E6. Featuring a tough magnesium alloy body, this heavy-duty grip uses two Battery Pack LP-E6 lithium-ion batteries or six AA/LR-6 batteries to vastly extend operating time while providing a comfortable grip for shooting vertically. Smart LP-E6 batteries keep you informed of remaining capacity, shutter count, and recharge status, and offer increased capacity and better low-temperature performance. For location shoots, Car Battery Charger CBC-E6 plugs into your vehicle’s cigarette lighter, assuring you of fully charged batteries wherever your assignment takes you. And when in the studio, the AC Adapter Kit ACK-E6 helps conserve batteries.

System expandability includes seamless compatibility with Canon flash units like Speedlite 580EX II or Speedlite 430EX II — both excellent for on- and off-camera lighting. These Speedlites are easily controlled via in-camera menus, including flash mode, synch selection, exposure compensation, zoom, and other functions.
  For extending your range, Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E4/E4A lets you upload images to servers and other computers over wireless and wired LAN networks while simultaneously recording to the camera’s memory card. It also connects directly to external storage devices such as USB hard disks thereby eliminating the need for a computer to offload images — a nice advantage when on location. You can also use the transmitter with a GPS device to attach global positioning data with images.

Other optional accessories include:
  • Remote Controllers RC-1 and RC-5 for remote operation up to approximately 5 meters/16.4 feet from the camera. Wired controllers are also available.
  • Original Data Security Kit OSK-E3, a cutting-edge
    software/hardware solution that helps maintain the integrity of image data.

 Note: The EOS 5D Mark II comes with Battery Charger LC-E6/LC-E6E.

Speed and simplify post-processing with bundled Canon software. Highly acclaimed EOS Utility offers a fast way to quickly download images and movies from the camera, and provides the interface for shooting stills or movies via Remote Live View shooting. You can also use it to program the camera with copyright information and lens correction data.

For RAW image processing, there is Digital Photo Professional (DPP). Integrating seamlessly with EOS Utility, DPP gives you the capability to simultaneously convert RAW images to JPEGs and TIFFs, sort with drag-and-drop ease, and modify image properties.
  You can also use it to apply noise reduction, Auto Lighting Optimizer, and Picture Styles. Additionally, DPP’s lens aberration correction function corrects RAW images for light falloff, distortions, chromatic aberration, and color blur.

Other bundled software includes Picture Style Editor for creating and editing Picture Style files, and ZoomBrowser EX/Image Browser for viewing and editing JPEG images and movies.
