Confused. Like everyone else I want to love the R5 but....I don't know.

I mean once you get to a certain threshold of image quality does it even matter? I would think 5DIV is already there.

I think I would prefer a 5D4 for:

  • Lower cost
  • Don't care about 4K video and the giant  crop factor.

Otherwise, the newer camera has serval incremental enhancements, and, combined, they make the new camera "worth" my money IMO.  The 5D4 will continue to be a great camera, and you will not suddenly take sh!tty pictures just because you didn't upgrade.
