Lenses / Re: Arrival of Canon 24-105 f/4 IS USM II
« Last post by monkey44 on Today at 11:23:10 AM »
On August 26th, I pre-ordered this lens (€1279). Altough it reads that this lens may be delivered by the end of October, the camera dealer believes that the lens will be available beginning of September when the first 5D MK IV's are delivered. According to the camera dealer this is due to the fact that this lens is also part of the kit.


What do you think? Or, what did you hear from your dealer?


I am eager to get my hands on this lens. I really want to find out which items of this lens in term of image quality really improved compared to the older model.

I'm eager to hear about this lens quality as well.  I'm not a candidate for the 5DM4 (5DM3 + 7D2 here) but would like to upgrade the 24/105 ...  I like the lens, but it is a bit finicky now and again at both ends, especially the edges (well, maybe I'm the finicky one:) ).  So, would like to see if the upgrade is worth the difference.

I totally agree with this. One Japanese site mentioned that the IQ of the 5DIV rivals that of the 5DsR. The reason is that IQ isn't just about megapixels, but Canon also upgrades a whole lot of other algorithms at the same time.
I fully expect the 5DIV sensor to be better than the 5DS/R sensor simply because its newer - even if the 5DS/R sensor already got a lot of the "new" stuff Canon put into 5DS/R.

Improvements should be better noise and DR (which Canon highlighted together with improved AF compared to the 5DIII). Colors, wb, anti-flickr, (non-)banding etc. I expect will be the same in the 5DS/R and 5DIV as these areas were improved already with the 5DS/R.

Looking at the DPR test shots I was however surprised how clear a lead the 5DS R has over the 5DIV when it comes to resolution and detail in spite of the upgrade to 30 MPIX. I believe the AA filter on the 5DIV is to blame for this. A blow for people like me who crave sharpness.

Canon Rudy is everywhere on net explaining 5d4 duel pixel raw.Looks like he knows how Canon iTR focusing suppose to work. Not sure why DPR ignores his suggestions and material.

Hey Scott, that made me think of some issues between my wife and myself, LOL.

Until recently, having at least figured out how to use the DPP stamp tool, I was more troubled by my dust specks.  So where exactly on the spectrum do you sit?

Jack

I so don't care about dust it frightens most people. But you know what? I have never had a person say they see dust in my prints.

The point is when prepping a file for output the amount of time I spend editing out dust is negligible, don't forget in Lightroom you can copy and paste dust removal so if I set up a landscape image I spot one of them then copy that to all the others.

I grew up in the film and prints days when we used to spend a lot of time touching up prints with paint and a brush, now I can do a much more accurate job woth a click in a fraction of the time.

I bought a DSLR so I could change lenses, I am going to get dust in my camera.

These compromises are a pain, for sure.  Still we must navigate them picking what bugs us least. 

Now I'm thinking I'd love to touch screen flip through shots and the 1DX II doesn't have it.  Then I think, on camera, how often do I need to quickly scan a lot of photos since I often do this during idle times while waiting for my subject to show up.  So, not a big deal.

OTOH, to be able to to touch focus faces in live view and not just video - much bigger deal for me.

Jack

Live view focus is a lot more accurate too. I took a photo of a Puffin off teh coast of Ireland a few years back with my 5DIII and a ef 400mm f2.8 LIS with a 2x TC attached. Wide open, the shots were a little soft. But when I engaged the live view focus...the results were spectacularly sharp. To be honest, when I got the files back to my laptop, it was hard to tell from the 100% viewing in lightroom if there was or wasn't a TC attached. It was THAT sharp, but using the normal viewfinder focus (which is far more practical and faster) the results were a lot softer. The 5DIII's ability to track is excellent, but the live view is a lot more accurate. So I'd like to try out the new touch screen live view focusing and tracking ability. I think the 5D4 has a lot more to offer than paper specs and the usability of the live view functions are a game changer for many. I can still exposure bracket easier in Canon's live view than I can with any other brand.

Amazing the hoops you have to jump through to prove there is 'an issue'.  ::)

Next, they'll add the 5-stop pushed images to really show differences.

From the same image here is the 'oil splatter issue' as seems common on 1 series cameras, it is the light rings at the top.

This is from a professional daily use 1 series camera.

You guys do make me laugh with your dust 'issues'.

Here is a 100% crop of my sensor this morning along with the full sized image.

Lol, I know Private but the old girl is brand spanking new, as I say I kind of felt a little "noob" on the phone about it but CPS sounded a little concerned, or maybe its just my sweet sounding voice to the nice lady on the phone ;) I shal promise not to look at sensor dust again ;) funny thing is I never have given a monkeys for it as dust is part of the job, how can anyone avoid dust on a planet made of dust haha

But, I like your pics Sir :D

P.s, is that a human hair, perhaps a pet hair, or small dog on the sensor  :-* and that top one, thats defo a snail! lol
