I too have bought a 5D but realising the extent of hyper exageration on the site read it with amusement.
90% of the stuff on an auto SLR is complete junk, I don't even bother with the manuals - what do you need to take a picture afterall - set exposure, compose focus and shoot! Sometimes when I'm feeling really lazy I might moved from AE to Program.
As it is the 5D provides fantastic image quality, a good viewfinder and the reduced depth of field I want from 35mm compared to APS sized sensors - the rest you just work with or ignore.
