DPR has just posted their review of the 1D Mark IV.

The Final Word (From DPR)
A lot has already been said about the 1D Mark IV, both by people who have tested it and those who have tried to weigh it up against the D3S and that kind of nit-picking makes it easy to overlook what an astonishing camera it is. And looked at from a neutral perspective, both it and the Nikon are unmistakably the best sports cameras that modern technology allows.

Its talents are slightly different to those of D3S but its strengths will be a great asset to many people – the smaller sensor that prevents it competing at the very highest ISOs delivers the kind of extra reach that many touchline shooters will appreciate. Frankly there's more to both cameras than just their high ISO performance and, while the Mark IV isn't the best high ISO camera on the market, it's still an exceptionally good one. From the point-of-view of the tasks it was built to tackle, there is nothing that can touch the detailed, high resolution images that it can deliver ten times a second.

  1. Rob Galbraith was the one who told the world, and Canon, about the Mark 3 focusing problems, something of which Canon was well aware, yet they neglected to fix the problem before releasing the camera to the public.

    I’ve read Mr. Galbraith’s reviews, and they were scientific. If you have read them, you too would come to the same conclusion. I don’t know as to where you’re getting your info, but you are incorrect.

    BTW, I’ve had two Mark IVs, and they both suck. And yes, I know how to use them. And in case you are going to insist that I’m using them incorrectly, then why do these cameras have to be so difficult to configure? I had no problem with the Mark IIn.

    Maybe that’s Canon’s way of hiding the fact that their cameras can no longer produce good AF results. You know the old saying: If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, then baffle them with Bull S***t. The Bull S***t being the complicated AF custom functions.
