This is such a huge upgrade from my 5D II. I am just playing around with at at this point, and I already love it. The video is great, although the 4k file size is massive...

I only had one morning with the 5DIV, but I was impressed.  30mp and 7 fps is a capable combination for birds IMO.

Amazing shots!! Which lens? And how much crop?

The owl images were shot with the Canon 600mm f/4 IS II naked  and with the 1.4x TC attached.  The Flight shot is almost full frame and was shot with the 1.4x TC on the 600.  The perched images were shot without the TC and are approximately 35% of the original frame.

The natural light was pretty much perfect this particular morning.

I got mine yesterday and it a huge upgrade from a mk2 (as others have already said) one thing thats driving me crazy is that I'm only getting a 13/14 shot buffer with RAW??

I have a UDMA 7 160mb/s card is this fast enough? (I think it should be) but can't figure out why I'm not getting the 21??

Great images Josh. I'm glad to see the 5D-IV holding onto the details inthe  red channel so well. My 5D-III could clip the red channel quite easily, so I used to end up underexposing to retain vibrant reds and shadows would suffer as a result. Looks like Canon solved all those problems and then some.

How have you chosen to customize the camera?

Thanks again.  I go with Autofocus #4; seems to be what co-workers use on their 1dx's; worked great.  Back button focus, AF servo.  Use 41 point cross type autofocus, and then have 4 point cross to help with focus.  Focus priority on both.  Turned off all the lens correction software in camera.  Another thing is I set up * button for shadows (ie:  player running in sunlight, gonna have certain shutterspeed etc.  Instead of shooting in AV/TV, I set up pre-game my shadow numbers.  So Af-ON is primary back focus button, then use * for focus and shadows.  Hope that makes sense).

Those owls are mind-blowing. Thanks for sharing!

try the controlled test described here http://www.the-digital-picture.com/News/News-Post.aspx?News=18912
Make sure you try it with all the lens correction options turned off.

check off all the other possible issues - things like CF card is duff, counterfeit or similar and lying about it's speed?
etc.

What size are your raw files?   average for me is about 35MB, min 29MB, max 56MB.  The test gives 26MB raw files and an aparrently much deeper buffer measured in the number of shots.  Likely the buffer is a fixed number of MB and the size of the raw files for your images dictates the number of shots you get in the buffer.

Also, I find the number in the VF seems wildly inaccurate. Generally says 16 with the options I have set, but I do get 22/23 with approx 35MB raw files

Boy, you have really perfect handling such a large, heavy lens.  I'm very impressed.  Keep the feedback coming, thanks.

Here are my photos from Chiefs v Chargers.  Only worked on jpegs (yes, they are post processed). Used 70-200L II 2.8 and 400L 2.8.

Impressed with autofocus.  Happy with shutter speed.  With really harsh light and shadows, felt the dynamic range was good.  The larger files really let you crop well on photos I'd usually never bother with, too. 

Hope you like:  https://www.flickr.com/gp/127024339@N07/68Z6p4

Great photos! How great it must be to be right on the sidelines!

Great for those of us on the fence to have threads like this with good reliable info, without tons of whining. :)  Thanks to those willing to share!

It's baptism will be the Reno Air Races from the pylons.  500 mph within 50 feet.  That should test the focusing system.

Wow! I'd sure love to be you! They let you on the pylons? I know you must be an official photographer for the event, but can't even imagine the adrenaline and excitement that must bring. Dangerous too!

There were some races down here in Las Vegas (I live in Mesquite) a few months back. Would have loved a ticket. I think Red Bull was a big sponsor.

Good luck to you and can't wait to see the photos. :)

Really spectacular flight shot. For not having a catchlight, the eye definition is great.

Pylons are crazy.  Panning 500 mph aircraft is a bit of a challenge.  This was shot with my 5DS.  LOL
