The Goldilocks of Wedding Cameras
1

We've shot well over 100 weddings with our three 5DmarkIV's and still love them. Does everything and nothing wrong. However ... two gripes

1. I much prefer Canon's AF zone mode selector on the 7DmkII — the 'collar' around the AF joystick. Why didn't they carry it over to the 5D4? Instead we get this odd magic button that's not intuitive and has poor feedback.

2. AutoISO defaults to 400 when you turn on a speedlight. Cue trombone sound effect, "whomp, whaaaaaaa"

Those are two minor sins in the big scheme of things. We'll always cherish our time with these cameras. They've been classics.
