haziz: To DPReview Staff: Will you please drop this aperture equivalence nonsense.

Like I said Tommy....I am an experienced photographer.... I have f/1.2, f/1.4 lenses for my FF (35mm). I KNOW what kind of DOF that I have with those lenses in that FF format. DOF is a range of what is in focus in the images. So if I am told, (even without seeing) "I" KNOW ok...that a given lens on the MediumFormat camera will give me similar DOF to my f/1.2 on my FF. That is useful info to this photographer. I know that what is in focus at a given distance and f/stop will be similar to something that I am famliar with. Maybe not useful information to you...but it is to "me". VERY useful. It's pretty simple. Seems like you and Haziz are trying to control what I find to be useful. I laugh at that. :-)

You are arguing with yourself....not us.

It isn't nonsense. Comparing provides a point of reference so that photographers can get an idea of the actual visual DOF of this MF system, which most do not use on a daily basis. Comparing it to a format that we are familiar with increases our understand of this larger format's capabilities. I am and extremely experienced photographer and I find it to be helpful and I am sure that many others do, as well.

I do LOVE watching this system's news and development from afar. I am an avid prosumer...and have to say I am very, very happy with the quality and variety of images that I can create with my 5D IV and a quiver of "L", ART, and Rokinon SP glass. I just don't see the need to take this step...but it is interesting. I can see where these new aftermarket lenses can make the FujiFilm MF Vortex pull some on the brink a little harder! :-)

I could see if someone got thirsty in the hot sun that they may pop the tab by accident before they shot their image? :-)

If there is no compensation to the photographer. I think that there should be. I know that if it were my photograph I would surely believe that I deserved to be compensated. The whole work of art is based on Goldsmiths image of Prince and Prince.

The cherry blossoms look GREAT...and I love the Seattle area...and the Pacific NW in general..... but with all those people there....I would not go near the place to shoot! LOL! Don't like tourist meccas. :-)
Looks beautiful, though!
I bet that there is a lone cherry blossom tree in a beautiful out-in-the-middle-of-nowhere setting, with a killer background just waiting for me.

Infared: So much cry'in here.... go create some photos....jeeeeezzzzzeeeee

I have a Canon 5D Mark IV. I checked out the discussion to see if anyone had any issues uploading the firmware. So that I could keep my incredible camera up-to-date. I updated mine and it was extremely easy via the memory card method.
I was having the AF issue with my new camera. It's fixed now. YAY!
You just came here to be a cry baby about a camera that you have never used........ WHHAAAAHHHHHHHHH!
LOL!

In reply to:

entoman: As usual, a couple of very minor fixes for bugs that very few people ever encounter, but nothing of any real value.

How about increased functionality?

How about 4K crop?

How about increasing the number of functions that can be assigned to buttons/dials via the custom settings?

How about assigning the ability to toggle between bracketing and single shot to the AF lock or AEL buttons?

How about following Nikon by having the ability to tweak metering to personal taste, instead of us all having to set our exposure compensation dials to minus half a stop all the time?

And, it would be rather nice if Canon service centres were able to provide a service to convert the cameras to twin SD cards instead of the silly CF/SD combo we currently have???

How about it Canon?

Joed...I only paid $2749 for mine. :-)

In reply to:

Superka: Canon 5D M4 is the most unamazing camera, Canon ever produced! It is not bad, but it is disappointing. The most disappointing video ever. 1.74x crop in 4K! ridiculous! Why adding video feature, just to laugh?
Why the price is so high?
Dynamic Range in the only one feature which is good addition, still far from Sony sensors.
Nikon 810 is so much better photocamera and costs much less.

...so..go buy a Nikon D810. We will all be happy.

In reply to:

Thematic: Since I am new to photography can anyone help me answer this question? I rented the Olympus mk2 and it has the world's worst picture quality - (is there anything worse?) but liked the speed and lenses - are there new cameras coming from olympus with better sensors?

Thank you.

Thematic....you may want to pick up one of these....

MikeF4Black: We chose to be bold with a rather large camera with a minuscule sensor.

Ok...

Barney....I have a FF system...(adding a 5D IV DHL from Hong Kong...any second now! exciting day...LOL!)....but I just LOVE my MFT cameras.
I have an EM1 II and grip along with the 300mm PRO and 1.4X. I can walk about down at the shore here and get such GREAT images with an 840mm equiv. set up...HAND HELD. It is just pure FUN!!!!! No tripod, no humongous equipment...but the glass is GREAT.
The longest I go on my FF is 70-200mm and 1.4x. Yes...I get better capture with the FF and lower DOF "if needed".... ...but so often...MFT is more than good enough! Lot of photo joy there....with live-able trade-offs.

In reply to:

Infared: I do not understand all of the negativity here and the bashing. I have a very complete FF system and an extensive MFT system. I grab my MFT cameras when ever I can as I get "very good" results and they are soooo much more fun to shoot with than my FF...
Love it! Not the right tool for every situation...but why do so many trash something that I bet many have never even used. Olympus cameras are fantastic...so glad that the company is staying vital! Their equipment really enhances my personal photographic experience. :-)

String Ding...your loss!!! :-)

Great article...will read more later....
Hoping that there will be a firmware update for the E-M1 II that will further fine-tune its already great AF. I think that it could be tweaked a little to make it better.

Cameracist: No, Canon and Nikon, you can't play with us. This is a game for big boys only. Here, have some SD cards and go play with cats.

yes....I wavered on the 5DS R....but decided that the Mark IV would be the best of all worlds for the shooting experience that I need. MP is not everything. A balance of qualities makes more sense to me.

In reply to:

lesnapanda: The fact alone that the Pentax 645Z which was launched so long ago is still on par with the newly lauched contenders from Fujifilm and Hasselblad shows what a great piece of equipment it is. The one thing that the Pentax is not is portable. You won't be shooting that on a sunday walk in the park with your dog or at a lunch with friends. Or shoot a MF selfie without a tripod ;)

Well...if you have a "manly" selfie stick...nothing can hold you back!!!!

LOL! I have a large Canon Lens quiver...so I just bought a 5D IV (on its way via DHL from Hong Kong as I type). I know...I debated purchasing one to compliment a 5DIII AND even compared to the less-expensive Nikon & Sony it has lower IQ. ...but it does a lot of things well that these 3 MF beauties cannot....And I am "stuck" with all that expensive fast glass that I own... :-)
I get a little giggle out of thinking the "C" in Canon stands for catfood. There is some truth in that. Why else would it take a CF card. LOL!
My new kit will more than serve "my" needs, though...so I will be a happy little cat...if not a fat cat with a big, beautiful MF beast.
It was a fun read, though. ...and I love all the options that today's photographers can choose from in what is a "dwindling" market.
