    Canon EOS5DMkIV

    I've been waiting for details on this for some time. I need to get better high ISO performance than the MkIII version for one particular job I do twice a year. This might help.

    latest spec here:
    http://www.canonrumors.com/full-spec...os-5d-mark-iv/

    i am super excited about the new dual pixel function (if true), namely ability to shift point of focus in post (like Lytro), also f/8 and -3EV (-4EV in LV) AF points...

    combined that with the new sensor and (expected) shadow performance this is day 1 preorder for me, some real game changers here

    Agree, Dual pixel function alone could be worth the upgrade. Still unsure exa ctly how it works, and there is speculation it could be introduced via Firmware to 1DxMkii.
    Lots to like about the mkiv, can't wait for some solid reviews and a test after its released, which is VERY VERY soon!
    I've drowned 3 cameras, bounced off a reef and lost 2 front teeth, had various fin chops and am really starting to feel OLD!

    But.....................................still love shooting the curl.

    Gulp! Received an e-mail from Canon today, asking me to pre-order the 5D Mk IV at a price of $5,699.

    I think I’ll pass on this one…

    Cheers

    It'll be the same price as the 5D Mk III was first launched at, so I wouldn't worry about Canon's RRP. I don't know anyone who actually pays RRP. Exchange rate variations won't help though.

    Did they give you a delivery date with your pre-order? I think it might be too late for the job I have in mind. My 5D3 has nearly 200,000 clicks on it, so it might fall over before too long.

    no exact delivery date...but i SHOULD be getting first batch

    i think that's early Sep

    gives me a solid a month and a bit to test out all the new features and make sure it plays nice with my fast primes (predominately sigma arts)

    200k clicks on your 5D3 is impressive!

    As long as they are EF lenses, then no problem.

    Looks pretty impressive. US price $3499, which is the same as the Mk 3 was. Unfortunately the exchange rate has taken a whack since I bought the Mk 3. If I hadn't already had to buy the 7D Mk II to replace my beat-up old 1D Mk 3, I wouldn't hesitate to buy this. Now, I'm going to have to think a bit longer about it, and maybe wait for all the early adopters to pay the premium.

    I'm really not a fan of Canon's marketing/product development philosophy that put all that video stuff into a stills camera and inflates the purchase price by doing it.

    yea i am a pure stills guy so video means next to nothing for me, on that note 4k video with screen grab (at ~8mpx) does look interesting...that's literally firing 30 fps lol

    on that note i do wonder whether or not video actually inflates sale price...one argument i hear is that it would cost canon very little to add the video features since it would mostly be software as hardware is already capable...and by adding video it appeals to a greater demographics hence significantly increasing unit sales which in turn actually keeps the cost down

    either way the live view functions for stills looks real promising too

    but yea i think wats hurting the most price wise is the fact that our exchange rate is so terrible atm

    Ascough (Canon ambassador) has a review on the 5D4 up on his blog. He comments: "To get the very best out of this camera, you may need to think about upgrading lenses if, like me, you still have some 15 year old models hanging around!! With modern lenses, this thing is a joy to use. I shot with a 24-105 f4L MKII, 35mm f1.4L MKII, 8-15 f4L Fisheye, 85mm f1.8. Sarah (his wife and co-shooter) used the 35mm f2 IS, the 28mm f2.8 IS, and the 135 f2L. All worked perfectly with the camera."

    The dual pixel RAW looks interesting. Looks like computational imaging is making in-roads into mainstream enthusiast photography.
