1d4: Will I be content?
May 4, 2010

I'm seriously contempating the purchase of a 1D4. I've shot the 10D, 1D2, 5D, 1D3, and now a 5D2. I love the form factor of the 1D series and I love the pic quality of the 5D series. I'm not a sports shooter, so AI servo is not that important to me, however, I like to shoot with fast wide to normal lenses (24L, 35L, 50 1.4). One area in which I was dissapointed with the 1D3 was shooting static subjucts wide open. Often times the focus was no better than my 5D. And there would be no consistency to it (sometimes backfocus, frontfocus, sometimes perfect) Is the OneShot mode of the 1D4 more accurate than the 1D3? I tried the D700 for a couple of weeks and it had amazingingly accurate focus, but I did not like the colors or harshness of the files. Anyone have experience with both Nikon and Canon that would care to elucidate, or even just your experience with the 1D4 and fast glass.

Thanks
Evan
