Interesting video. Also, highlights some of the issues with various "reviewers"

I wouldn't say they complained that it is too heavy for hand-held use. Actually, they used it hand held and certainly noted its weight. I am one of the few with the 150-600S and have only used it hand held. Sure it is heavy, but I've gotten used to it. It is a heckuva lens. Believe me, I am tempted by the 100-400II because of its size and MFD, but so far I am sticking with the 150-600S.Mr. Carnathan certainly loves Canon!
Too bad this lens is sharpest at the wide end. I have a 70-200/2.8 II that fills that need. I was hoping for very sharp at 400mm. The new Sigma is looking better and better.
Just about everyone who has reviewed the Sigma has complained that it is too heavy for hand-held use - not only is it heavy but the heaviest part, the front lens elements, protrude out very far unbalancing an already heavy lens. The beauty of the Tamron 150-600mm and now even more so the 100-400 II is their portability combined with pretty good IQ.
.The 5DIII was nearly perfectly aimed at event photographers. I don't get why they would change that with the 5DIV unless it had two modes, one for ultra resolution/large file size and another that maybe used pixel binning to create smaller higher quality images that allow it to be an improvement over the 5DIII for event photographers.
I haven't read through 19 pages of comments...
But I believe if this is the 5D4, a lot of people will be using the 5D3 for a lot of years to come.
I browse this website quite often since 2012. I have never seen so many negative comments about Canon these days in comparison with before.
Does Canon really not satisfying its customers lately or is it that there are new members in the forum who like to put down Canon in comparison with other companies?
