Sunni,

I also own a 5D MKII and think it is an amazing camera. But to shoot weddings I would suggest you also have a video camera. The new Canon 305, Sony EX1R, Panasonic AF100. That way you have the ability to shoot quickly and also have the SDOF of the 5D. Just my thoughts.

I couldn't agree more with Paul. A 5D is a fantastic camera, but I would also buy a 'true' videocam as second unit. I do not zoom often, but when I have to do it, I thank the lord that I have my Sony PDW-F350 or Z7. Also for low-level shots a videocam with it's flip-out LCD screen is much handier. The 5D has it's merits for video shooting, especially as a steadycam in my opinion, but is also has it's limits. Just my thoughts...
