EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: DPreview First impression review 5D IV
« Last post by Sabaki on Today at 10:06:52 AM »
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.

A while ago we heard here on CR that canon had some new sensor tech coming down the pipe, and that the 5ds would get a rather quicker refresh cycle as a consequence.

Bear in mind this is just a rumor.
I've noted several developments/hints from Canon (well, as much a you do get in their 'interviews') that there is a desire to make use of some of this in a product, but I don't think there is much chance for a 2017 camera, especially with the 5D4 starting to ship in September (and a 6D refresh needed).

Agreed.  I'd love to see it sooner, but it would surprise me.  A quicker refresh cycle is relative.  Relative to current release cycles, 3 years would be quick, so q1 2018, like Diko said.  H. Jones did have a point that release cycles used to be quicker, so anything could happen.  Frankly I expect Diko to be right.  I feel that sensor technology has somewhat plateaud in the last few years (not only in canon land but everywhere else as well) so slower releases are to be expected.  I've been eyeing the 5D III for a while, and wondering what Canon could possibly do to make a 5D IV any better.

The only way Canon is going to listen to its customers is by not buying or buying other brands that meet your needs.

So if you are happy still with you current camera postpone buying the Mark IV and the advantage you will get it cheaper than now the prices with a mark-up on it because it is new. You never know if Magic Lantern has managed, by then to overcome the firmware left outs by Canon.

That's an apt description for most statements made by an internet troll, which is what you appear to be.

Jeez,  this thread has turned into a complete car crash.  :(

Unpleasant reading, frankly. And I'll not be the only one to think this.

EOS Bodies / Re: Long time 5D user, will I upgrade or wait for 6DII?
« Last post by Lord M on Today at 09:52:49 AM »
I'm somewhat in a similar situation. When I bought the 6D in 2013/14 I didn't want to spend the money for a 5D III. But I've been very disappointed from the start with the autofocus and colour rendering of the 6D. So now I'm finally looking to upgrade from my 6D. I was waiting for the 5D IV to come out, but the price is just to high for me.

So is the 5D III still worth it's money? From what I see other photographers do with it I must assume it is.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5DIV can only do 3 sec. continous shooting ?!
« Last post by aa_angus on Today at 09:35:36 AM »
Should I expect better buffer/write speed performance from the CF or SD slot, when using 5DIV?
I would expect CF..but I have a selection of very fast SD cards, so I'm hopeful that I can utilise those without sacrificing any write speed.
