Getting frustrated with my 1D4's low light AF performance
Apr 23, 2010

I'm not really happy with the low light AF of my 1D4. My 5D2 with its center point can focus faster and more accurately in low light than my $5k 1D4. It's not just this body either, I've had two 1D4's and both of them are miserable with low light AF performance.

It's annoying. And with wedding season coming up, and with one guy I know already switched to Nikon for this issue alone... I'm left wondering if a firmware update can fix this night blind AF system.

My 1D3 focused better in low light, I thought the 1D4 was supposed to be an improvement... well, it is in a couple of areas, but at the expense of low light AF performance?

C'mon Canon... what gives?
