Mark my words, 5d4 will sell like a hot cake, especially when the price in $3K or slightly below  :)

Neuro - I'm curious the deciding factor(s) between 17TS-E and 16-34/4?    I've had the 16-35/4 for about 3 months now and absolutely am loving the walk-around/hand-hold-ability of it - where the 17 would require a tripod to get better-than-average results (at least from my limited experience with TS-E's - which admittedly is about 3 hours in total).

Most of my UWA shooting is architecture when I travel, so a TS-E lens was a pretty easy decision.  I usually shoot either at blue hour/night or with a 10-stop ND, so always on a tripod for that.

Makes good sense, as usual.

The B&H video mentions that they have a DIGIC 6 processor just for the image processing and the quality of the jpegs was particularly praised. Accepting this was a panel of pro-Canonites on a promo video, it suggests that any increases in image quality are as likely due to the fancy techno-gabble programming as any new sensor tech.

So went out yesterday and shot some landscape with my Mk2, I never shoot landscapes and would less so with a 1DX2, anyway.... get back, look at images and guess what, dust/oil!! Lots of dust, camera only shot 1000 or so shots and only swapped the lens a few times, not that it's me as my 5D3 has been used near daily for three years and same lens tested at f22 shows NONE and never been cleaned, now CPS want the supplier to exchange it! Will see what happens as they now want to question CPS on why they want it swapped. I'd not be bothered but some can be seen at f8 and I'd clean it but given that its brand new and after talking to CPS... Still CPS and supplier are great so far.

EDIT: Talked to CPS and supplier again, camera is being changed for a new one.

Glad you were able to exchange the camera if it wasn't to your satisfaction. You are lucky, and wise to do so. I was told that because I used my CPS membership and got a discount on the camera I couldn't do an exchange and that I'd have to go through Canon for any repairs, which is what I did. Thankfully they did a nice job and I'm really happy with the results.

Oil and dust seem to be a bigger problem on the 1D series, at least from what I have found from my own experiences. I've had three 1D cameras (two 1DX's and a 1DX II), and they've all developed dust and oil spots far faster than any other cameras I've ever had. It probably has something to do with the more violent shutter mechanism and the extra lubrication needed for it.

And moire becomes less of a problem with higher density sensors.

I think it has becomes one of those 'it can't improve resolution so I would rather not have it just in case' issues.

I like this a lot. It feels like something Apple should include for one of their system desktop images.

I'd posted a similar picture earlier (different file, different day) but I like this one better.  :)

Cool shot! I like the way it's coming out between the boards of the fence.

This is really beautiful. I hope you made a print of this one!
So far I have not made any prints of my pictures as I change my mind all the time. Some of them that look nice may look stupid in several months. Thanks for your encouragement.

Well, I certainly don't think this one would look stupid in a few months. You should try printing a few shots -- I find that prints enhance the enjoyment of the picture far more than just looking at it on the screen. :) Again, well done!

Here are some of my efforts

Nice shots, R1-7D. I like the color of this picture.


Lovely shot, R1-7D.  Well done.   :)

Thank you npdien and Click! :) I believe I took that one with the 24-70 f/2.8 II. I appreciate the nice feedback from you both.
