For me it would be yes providing I can live with the EVF. So I will have to rent one to try it out. I think the higher resolution (for cropping), better AF and higher FPS are the winners for me.

I’m holding out to see real world tests and reviews from independent sources before I even consider it. One thing I’m not to keen on is it’s price. It’s a little steep just to get that extra 15 mega pickles coming from a 5DIV, sure the AF is better but it’s not like what I’m using now is holding me back. I get the debate, for having a hybrid stills/video camera, but it seems silly to include features that will overheat and be unusable. My stance on the matter is, if you need that type of video specs, you need a video dedicated camera!

Thats why I’m also hoping for a 5DV that’s a dedicated stills shooter, won’t overheat, won’t die after a couple hours of use and have to replace batteries. I’ll take a 5DV over Canons new mirrorless toys any day.
