I would ask these questions to Canon technical support.  They will know more than we and can advise you directly.
Agreed, what you described is not normal.

I am a 5DIII owner and borrowed the 5DIV for a few days.  I would agree that it is slightly better in most ways.  The battery drain issue does seem to be real, where the 5DIII has better battery life.

The biggest advantages of the 5DIV over the 5DIII that I noticed were lowlight focusing, weight (noticeably lighter), better auto WB, and I do like the shutter/mirror slap sound of 5DIV better.  It is quieter.  I have also seen people pull more detail out of shadows, but, in the shots I took where I tried to view the benefits of extended DR, the 5DIII actually did pretty well, but the 5DIV was better and I do occasionally see banding issues with my 5DIII. 

So, overall, the 5DIV is a better camera, except for the battery life.  But the 5DIII is an amazing camera in its own.

For a third camera, mostly aimed at lower weight, if you think of cameras as tools, I'd probably save the money and go for the 5DIII.  If you liked to geek out with the latest gear, then go with the 5DIV, it is better, and, maybe most importantly, just a bit lighter.

So far, I am staying with my 5DIII.  And the further we get from the release of the 5DIV and the more shots I take where I wouldn't have needed the 5DIV features the less tempted I am to upgrade.

As a 5d3 owner i remember the kick when i first tried the 5d3 owning a 5d2 this time, and yes it was iimmediately visible that it s much better and almost every way, except sensor prerformace which was the same.

i tried a 5dIV and the difference is much less obvious, at least in 5 minutes in shop.

For me, the biggest advantage would be the almost ISO invariant sensor, which would allow to underexpose at low iso, brighten in post ans so avoid blowing highlights for night shots. The other upgrades may be there for sure, but they wont save me if i am doing things wrong, or with other words, it's most times users fault if one can not take a good shot with a 5d3.

So i would really like a 5d4, BUT so far, i was not ready to spend 2000$+ for the upgrade, better get a speciality lens for this, or other equipment like a really good tripod, or take some lessons in photoshop.

This question may be a matter of luxury, if you have everything else, have no training needs, have enough money for travelling whenever you have the timee, and still have the money, i am sure you will really like a 5d4, as i would like it

This is a very rare visitor on these shores. We´ve been lucky to have one couple nesting by a river close to where I live. I got up at 6am this morning and headed out, with a couple of "lunatic" comments from my wife. 0C/32F and a cold breeze made it a chilling experience. The bird appeared a number of times and I have lots of shots. Finally it decided to sit down in the sun and I could get my ISO sufficiently down to benefit from the 5DSR resolution. It lives on the other side of the river, where access is impossible, so a lot of cropping was required.

5DSR, 600mm f4L IS II + 2xIII extender. 1/400s, f/9.0, ISO200

Yes GMC, I believe you are right. I just thought all the praise and all the positive posts by happy customers meant something. Unless a miracle happens (which translates to stable and consistent AF), I´ll get rid of this one and just wait for the L-lens upgrades to the 85 and 135.

Lovely. Beautiful light. I really like this picture. Well done, Laruse.

This photo is worthy of a Michelangelo or Monet :)
