Interestingness: It just keeps getting better and better with this new Canon 5D IV - holy smokes! Very solid performance with this 30MP sensor.

- the 85 1.8 is really holding up well
- all 4 of the cameras are crazy good at low ISO. If you get nose prints on your monitor trying pick out any difference, THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE!
- turning up the ISO up though & things change (i only check RAW) - the D810 really starts to get really noisy (relative to the others) at 3200 and its much more noticeable at 6400 rubbing away detail
- the A7R II is totally outgunned by the Canon! At ISO 6400 there is still plenty of detail in the Sony (its 42MP remember) but its shifting colour - the grey-black background is going green (at least on my monitor) and there is more noise. Above that when you go to crazy ISOs like 25,600 the Sony, Nikon and less so the 5D 3 are all noticably noisier and the Sony is doing wierd things like the whites are starting to glow, yet are still razor sharp on the Canon.

Impressive!

5D4 being a stop cleaner than the sony sensor in the d810 and a7r2 at iso extremes.

Zoron: Please make a comparison with Nikon D900.....ooo wait it's not even announced yet

d900 is decades away by their naming convention.

rjaywallace: Video would not play on my Apple iPad Retina screen. Disappointing.

Your screen's marketing name isn't the issue.

Mariano Pacifico: I used to have Canon ESOS 5d Mark II with 24-105mm. I take good pictures and video as I can see as friends droll over it. Friends and a son of a friend who is teenage vlogger asked me "what point-and-shoot do you have?"

From then on, I realized people cannot know the difference between full dslr and point-and-shoot quality. I dumped my back-breaking full dslr over Olympus Pen-F. Now, I can proudly say, I got teeny-tiny point-and-shoot camera without batting an eyelash at more than less half the price.

Epy: that is very telling of you.

Noogy: My 6D is retiring. Will wait a bit though for reviews to kick in, but I'm just about ready to grab this.

Except 6D has better sensor than the 5D3 and is better at very high iso.

pixtorial: Unfathomably expensive considering the breadth of highly capable cameras on the market today, regardless of the heritage of the 5D series.

...so says the m43 troll!

Funkyd3121: So, the Canon G7XII gets a Digic 7 processor & the New 5DIV gets Digic 6+ - Huh??

Digic is just the name of their cpu. P&s cams can need more in camera processing applied than dslrs need, e.g. distortion correction and crop, noise reduction, etc since much bigger dslr sensor use better lenses, better focal lengths, and natively have less noise!

WillWeaverRVA: The old 5D is still a great camera for portraits. If I had any Canon glass (or even just a fast 50), I'd probably get one. Its color rendition is amazing thanks to that CCD.

5D sensor was CMOS not CCD.

Thought it came out at $3300 not $3500. Then the 5D2 was $2700, then 5D3 $3500.

itsmeavi: The only good thing about this camera is that it will make 5d mark iii affordable :) Where's my third kidney...

5D3 sensor is old. This new one will be well worth the price over the 5D3 for more DR, dual pixel autofocus, more expansive af layout.

Nindy: Where is Canons full frame for the enthusiast? The mk4 is priced for business's along with the x mk2.
The 6d is not an acceptable answer for 2016.

1D X2 is pro, 5D4 semi-pro/lightweight pro, 6D enthusiast. 6D2 next year.

QuarterToDoom: Not commenting on this camera per say but Canon is out in full force paying for ads for this camera. They even have it as a story on Slashdot lol

You exactly are commenting on this camera ! Whenever someone says: "not to be...." they are about to do exactly what they said they weren't doing ! Foolish misdirection!

No, smaller and might not have been able to get it out!

DA photo: I am a former military and Airline Transport Pilot with 8000 hours flight time. Had I never done anything stupid in an airplane I would be self-righteous. BTW I am not a great fan of side stick controllers.

Did you read the photo caption? Clearly you didn't. It's a recreation photo not the real situation.

m3: There is still hope:
At least a hundred and eighty some of the passengers told the lawyers to bugger off and weasel money from other 'causes' other than a mistake gone wrong.
The world is full of these blood-sucking parasites and one of the severe causes for its demise, together with bankers and speculators, all blessed by greedy politicians.

They still have banking in their name , dude!

Nikita66: ugh, f6.3 wide open at the long end, snail slow

come on, come on, DX uwa prime pleeeeeaaase !
personally want: 10mm 2.8, AF, removable hood, filter thread and AF. small as possible. thank you very much

No matter what aperture you use for the photo, autofocus is at f/6.3 at the long end meaning slower and less accurate focusing !
