What is the best dslr camera?

Canon eos 5d mark II is good for great photos and decent Video. Especially with the full frame sensor depth of field.

For the best quality Video you want the Panasonic GH2, especially with the hack which makes the detail very close to film. The canon gives subpar 720p resolution even in 1080p while the GH2 resolves very fine detail and in 1080p cinema mode can look as detailed as a RED camera.

Nikon has some of the most user friendly dslr cameras to just pick up and shoot while Panasonic has the more advanced learning curves with too many features to count. Canon i would say is in the middle in terms of difficulty.
