Why Has it Scored 73?

multiple reviews mentioned that it has very good expert reviews with an average expert rating of 85%, based on 64 reviews. This digital camera has received seven awards including an "Editor's Choice" award from Digitaltrends.com plus one other site and a "Highly Recommended" award from DP Review plus one other site.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer cameras with better features are available. However this Canon digital camera has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
The EOS 5D has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Over 80 Different Canon Lenses Available
Wide range of optical zooms depending on lens used
S<br>The EOS 5d can shoot a 60 large JPEG image burst at 3
and raw<br>jpeg and RAW images can be written simultaneou
Lower than average megapixels
Very low maximum ISO sensitivity
