So here I am, a Canon shooter.
Each of my 7 lenses bare the Canon brand, as do both my bodies, namely the 7Dii and the 6D. I have stated before that I felt the 7Dii has fallen short of the promo material released by Canon. but as a photographer whose options are limited to the Canon Eco-system, the 7Dii was my one and only option for what I wanted to shoot.
I absolutely adore my 6D with one caveat, the number and spread of the AF points. As such, the 5D IV is a body that has me interested as it will solve this problem and a few others (the button layout mirrors that of the 7Dii for instance).
What gets to me about DP Review articles in general, is that they normally argue the kit's performance in relation to gear in other eco systems. Why on Earth would the average user who is locked into a brand want to know that a feature from Sony, one from Nikon, Panasonic, Fuji outperforms the equivalent feature in the item being reviewed? The 5D IV isn't an entry level body and I will go out on a limb here and say that most who are starting their digital photography journey, may look at the entry level offerings.
I would enjoy an article that focuses on how the body would fit into the system it was designed for, which will allow me to appreciate it for what it does. Perhaps a paragraph or two in the conclusion can be used to evaluate against offerings from other brands.
