The 11-22 is a perfect holiday lens especialy when it is crowded. Instead oft the 55 200 vor 18 135 I suggest the Tamron 18 200 für the M bayonet. Whenever I use the 18 135 as a tele i catch myself using it fully extended. Better habe the full range even St a slight extra in weight.

Hi Sanj

I pretty much use my 5d bodies purely for wildlife, but in doing so have found the 5Dmk4 to be significantly better, especially with low light image quality/high iso.  I also find the camera a lot more versatile due to its great Live View capability ,and also M-Mode Auto Iso with exp compensation capability. I compared them here:

Just completed a short video discussing some key differences that I have found whilst shooting wildlife with the 5Dm4 and the 5Dmk3, both of which I own.

Whilst I have not found that there is any one aspect of performance that is radically upgraded between the two cameras, (aside from Live View shooting of course which is so much better on the new one), there are so many small advances and improvements that,  the 5Dmk4 just does the job better.  Of the improvements, I find the better image quality and improved low light capability perhaps the most useful, for my own wildlife shooting needs.
I am finding that it I can comfortably use iso 3200 anytime I need faster shutter speeds in low light, and even iso 6400 for print, with some noise reduction.

Hi CanonFanBoy!

Lovely vintage subject. Nice series.

"Pump2" puts it in best light IMO.
"Pump1 WEB" gives a great contrast with the modern stainless steel silos in the bg. ;)

I feel like there has been too much made of this FPS talk. Disclaimer, frame rate is lost on me a bit as most of the time my style photography doesn't require it (and I very very rarely have done spray and prey). However, with all that said this 20 FPS (with all the asterisks and caveats) seems to be hooking too many on pure specmanship alone.

How many frames per second does one need to accomplish their task? I'd argue that you hit diminishing rates of return very quickly beyond 10. Even in the very demanding sports or wildlife photography, how many here would accept the excuse for a missed (or not hitting the) shot from one who claimed they just didn't have enough fps when they were shooting with a camera capable of 10?

Go from 5 fps to 10 fps and that is a huge difference. But after that it's just icing on the cake. What is the 1D at now? 12 or 14 (depending on shooting config) and if you can't capture your shot is it really the camera at point?

Again, once you hit 10+ fps rates, the important parts become, the focus tracking ability, blackout and ability to follow the subject, etc.

For sports and wildlife, more the better. Even 2 fps increment helps. 12 to 14 is better in real world. In next version on 1d it may go up to 16 and that will be even better.

I AGREE !!!

Even TWO MORE FRAMES per second is a big deal.
In the image below I took 24 photos in rapid succession but ONLY ONE IMAGE had just the right focus, perfect animal positioning and rushing water look I wanted in this type of Rugged Wild West Coast of British Columbia, Canada imagery.

I wish the weather was better (it's almost ALWAYS stormy and grey!) but this image tells the story of just how rugged the Pacific Northwest Coast of North America can be. Only because of HIGH FRAME SPEED, can I capture this type of image easily!

So the more frames per second I have the better!

(p.s. It really did look that weird overall blue tone colour...it was like a blue mist all around me!)

The economics work out too I guess. I pay more now but get more when I upgrade. Evens out I think. :)

But now my mind is drifting back to XT2. The size/weight difference really is appealing. But feel insecure about IQ... Don't have enough experience with smaller sensor.
