Make sure you factor in the 1.74x crop the 4K video gives you. I hired the 5DIV for a couple weddings to see if I could use it as a hybrid stills/video camera. The stills were great but the video was infuriating. I like to use primes and as soon as I switched to video mode I’d have to change lens because of the heavy crop.

The other frustration was the codec. The files sizes are ridiculous and I don’t think the video quality is benefitted by it.

If I were only shooting stills and could get the 5DIV for a reasonable price I’d be happy. I don’t think it works as a hybrid stills/video camera though.

Just my opinion after a couple weeks use.
