tron said:+1 for the AA filter. Or they could possibly compromise with one model only with relatively week filter (I do not know though if would be the best or the worst of both worlds). As far as the separately charged video feature(s) I believe that the current price of 5DIV should apply for the updated model. The current (as is) model should be cheaper to begin with (talking mainly about European price)infared said:I think if can had done without the filter, that the resolution (although fewer pixels) would be more competitive with the Sony or the Nikon. Right?Mikehit said:Pebbles said:Why anyone would buy a 5D4 now is beyond me. It's a Turkey. They know it too. This is a last-ditch effort to keep it relevant. Look at what the competition are doing.
Because I take stills and don't give a stuff about video.
That good enough reason?
Yes..I am stills only, too. I was on the fence about the 5DIV. (Have and continue to own 5D Mark III). Researched, a LOT. I have quite a bit of high end EF-mount glass. Looked at the Sony, looked at the 5DS R...and came back to the 5DIV...Because of its balance of handling, compitent interaction with its great lens selection and not "huge" file size. The price is a choker...but I found gray market at $2750. I absolutely love the camera. It was the best choice for me and "my" needs, even though it was not at the top of the heap in the FF resolution dept. I found that the cameras that are at the "top" of that heap had handling and/or noise problems that made them not the best choice for my needs.
It makes me happy to know that Canon is charging separately for some of this video capability that I have NEVER use/used. I would like to see more of that separation for cost savings in the future from Canon.
I thiink it would have been even better if Canon had offered a model without the anti-aliasing filter. That would have been great!
Well...I agree...I think in this market..the body should be cheaper...but Canon knows that they have us. I have 13 EF-Mount lenses....so ...as of now it would take something monumental to get me to change systems...and as far as adapters go...too more lens connection points, slow focus....etc...on and on....no thanks.
There are a lot of choices for everyone though....so it's all good!
