That's it! I'm done waiting on Canon to come out with a Mirrorless FF replacement for my 1DXII so I'm making to move to SONY.

I'm tired of traveling with all the weight of the 1DXII and the idea of buying a 2 year old 5DIV, that is not really much smaller, just doesn't sit well with me.

I'm going to try the Metabones adapter with my Canon Lenses and see how that works out. Maybe in a few years Canon will catch up to Sony, but I just can't wait any longer. : (

Congrats... I guess? I suppose I should be happy for you, especially coming into the Canon forum to rant about Canon and how Canon's tech doesn't sit with you well, with the assumption that Sony will somehow make your photography so much better. I would almost call this a troll post, but perhaps I am being too hasty in that thought.

Personally for me, the 5D Mark IV really checks off most of the things needed for a mirrored DSLR. Even its DR is really quite good (especially when you use the Dual Pixel Raw mode image extractor, which basically adds another stop of DR, which effectively matches anything the Sony can do at base ISO). The AF is more than good enough (for me), I really don't shoot video (but the 5D IV has more than good enough in that department), and utilizing high-end Canon glass, the 5D IV is more than capable of remarkable photography. I would beg to see a positive difference when using the Sony over the Canon (and that is after you have to get the colors right on the Sony).

To each their own. Enjoy your new Sony.
