I recently sold my old Canon 5D, with which I travel around the World, and 7D cameras. I loved 5D, but it became very dated and approached the expected life of its shutter, and 7D, a cropper, produced noise in shadows. I got 5D Mark 4 and quite happy with my decision.

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.

I enjoyed using original 5D that was able to produce superb images and now 5D Mark 4 is, in my opinion, the best camera in its class (expensive of course). I am not saying that Nikon 810 is not good, but using Canon for about a decade - 5D Mark 4 is "my" camera. Anyway the quality of the images mostly depends on the skills of the user not on a camera. A good photographer can get a good image with even a smart phone.

EF 24-105 F4 USM L IS - I used it since 2008 and it was very sharp working with original 5D, however not so good for some reason with my new 5D Mark 4. 70-200 F4 USM L was not my favorite with old 5D, but I found it to be superior in sharpness with 5D Mark 4. I also like 17-40 F4 USM L.

On article Dpreview Users' Poll: Best Camera of 2012? (1507 comments in total)

Must be a Nikon D800/E; and I am a Canon user. Ability to use both FX and Dx lenses on the same camera is hard to beat. I wish Canon would consider this small convenience in the next model of 5D. Currently I cling to original 5D for landscapes and 7D for birding. One body that can introduce a crop when needed is a dream. Probably is going to stay a dream in Canon world.

What about D800, is there internal dust accumulation as well or not?

Canon should have "slightly" revised 7D with full frame sensor and GPS. One convenient feature that, in my humbly opinion is missing, on all full frame Canons and available on Nikon is ability to switch on crop factor. One camera can be used for landscaping and birding by a switch. I have 5D original, 7D, and a few L lenses otherwise I would consider Nikon 800 serious. Actually I am staying for now with what I have. Anyway, it is a person behind the camera that produces a picture and camera is merely a tool.

I am yet to see a Pro who is using NEX system. I am not sure if it is possible to produce a high quality work without good optical viewfinder. NEX in my humble opinion is a good pocket camera to carry around, but Iphone, if is not a match yet, but will be pretty soon. It is very difficult to compare a DSLR with multitude of lenses and a handy pocket camera. They are intended for different markets I guess.
