CopCarSS: So this is how NASA faked the moon landing? They did Lytro 47 years before Lytro? ;^)

Kubrick did a good job @area51! The reward was the NASA f0.7 lens. hehe.

vscd: Seems Canon is up on par again... in high ISO range it's way better than even the D810 or A7R2. Let's wait for the dynamic range test.

It depends on the location on the chart (as some already noted). For example the 5DM4 gives less color artefact than the "mighty" D810, which is quite good.

At least I can't see the big differences from before where Canon always had a lot of banding and color noise where Nikon/Sony/Pentax still remained clear.

LDunn1: no fold out / articulated LCD :-( .....disappointing.

This is now a very hard decision (for me) between upgrading my 5d2 to the 5d4, or to the Sony A7Rii & a metabones adapter.

...take a decent smartphone with WLAN for better articulated screen. Tiltscreen is no buy for me.

TMW: I was wondering something. Maybe I missed it, maybe it is just self-evident.

The Dual Pixel RAW thing only works with Canon DPP, right?

Does it work with Sigma lenses?

Lightroom already confirmed to implement it. Takes no year like XTrans...

Sergey Borachev: Another day, another article on this Canon 5D IV.

Let me guess, tomorrow, we'll get "The difference between 5D III and 5D IV", followed by "Real World Test Shots" the day after. :-)

I think Sergey got offended not to hear the daily Sonynews anymore. I like to hear some more infos on the 5DM4. And the 5D Classic throwback rocked! Nice idea to the right point.

DME: With the price of the camera and 24-105 lens at $4599 and with no 6d no on the horizon, I'm glad I switched to Nikon a year ago. I'm really happy with the 2 d750s I'm shooting with.

You're right... even as Canonuser I have to admit they should change the price to the better. But I hope it's like with new lenses, which went down very soon lately.
A reason to change to Nikon? No. Don't think so...

By the way, a change from Canon to Nikon is worse than one might expect, everytime I use a Nikon I hate it to Zoom the the "wrong" direction, mount everything counterclockwise or have no Custom Functions. ;)

zodiacfml: All the hardware can be used to build a capable mirrorless camera. They just can't do it now as they can't justify creating a new lens system.

You are free to use mirrorless... please tolerate others, too.

Ran Plett: Hope this soothes the collective disappointment in Canon's 4K offering. I would have titled the article: "Desperate Sony A7 user flees to Iceland to keep camera cool."

Haters gonna hate. Even in other topics comments...

No, I think it's a flash from the cam...

In reply to:

AshMills: Still better than many photographers.

Yes... but I think we should compare the same sensorsizes. ;) it's quite cheap to get creative with full format and an old 5D. But you're right... the D7100 is better in most cases and sufficient any time for 99% of the pictures worth taking.

vscd: I don't think the MJPEG was used because they didn't know better... MJPEG is way better to grab frames from the video which, at least for me, is the point why I would ever use 4k on a DSLR. But maybe they could have made a choice available with a switch to H264/H265 ;)

I don't know... maybe. But I think JPEG compresses better and is well know to any programm around. You could ask the same way why Canon uses CR2 or Nikon uses NEF... I guess they don't like Open Fileformats. Think of a world where no RAW Converter is needed anymore ;) I think Leica got the point (DNG)...!?

LDunn1: Can't believe that the 16-35 f2.8 STILL doesn't have IS.....Ggggggrrrreeeeee.

@LDunn1
You think IS is something the marketing can decide on? It's not always the case. If you implement an optical group for IS the Lens is getting longer and to keep the fstop it's also getting a little bit thicker for that reason. It's quite hard, if not impossible, to design a fast f1.4 with IS... but of course you can wish for it.

And if I had the choice between f4 IS and 2.8 I would grab the 2.8 because moving objects don't care about your IS, they're gone anyway. Try to use a tripod if you want long exposure times.

IS is mostly something for long focallenghts where you have to keep the times short due the small viewing angle, fast times and sometimes bad max. apertures.

...if he's willing to pay $3500 to find that out I guess you're right. Do you really think the picture will be better? If you define a good picture on it's bitdepth or resolution it's of course doable. I just think the difference wouldn't be 6 times better as the pricedifference suggests...

@notpc
It simply means that a good photographer can make better photos with an old 5D than a noob could do with a 5D Mark IV.

Pavel Synek: Its little embarrassing but Im still using 'classic' 5D for my work. Its still cheapest way to get 'full-frame' look + it has great colors until today.

Pixelpitch has always it's merrits. I think you refer to reviews of the A7s vs. A7R, but I think these are different sensors... with the same technology larger microlenses are always better, maybe not on ISO but on Colorfidelity. Another interesting topic was: https://www.dxomark.com/Reviews/F-stop-blues

...it's quite interesting and I would like to hear some objective comments from dpreview to it. But it's another topic. The 5D is still at the top, there ;)

Correct. And if someone needs more light for a specific job he can get the f1.4 primes down to 20mm...

Thanks for the great article, it warmed up my hearth. ;) It's still a very capable cam I use very often. The only reason I sometimes choose another one is the single card slot (no backup on jobs... nah). The sensorsize together with the low pixelcount gives still great pictures, especially together with very fast lenses. Changeable focusscreens can even control the 85L in reasonable portaitshootings. Without liveview.

Here is an example, taken with a fitting classic lens (Magic drainpipe), another totally underestimated piece of canon ;)
