I have, could not find any good examples

Sonyshine: Am I missing something?
With that massive 4K crop isn't this just a big, heavy, over priced MFT video camera? Just sayin'......

Hi Yudi,
Sonyshine was talking about crop factor so I commented on that only.
You can still use Sigma 8-16mm, Samyang 10mm, Tokina 11-16mm if you need very very wide angle but I agree with the lack of options for that. But that's only that! Super wide angle may be an issue, that's all.
Agree with the codec, I'd prefer to have both MJPEG and another more efficient codec. MJPEG is not a bad codec in terms of quality, and you can extract 8MP frames from it, the issue is the card space and speed. I wish Canon came with C-Fast card slot instead of CF.
A7RII looks better on paper, but it has other drawbacks that keep me away from that monster. Operation speed is one of them, for example, or bad AF in low light.
Canon 1DC is still the king of "affordable" 4K cameras, in my opinion, by the way.

Jonathan Brady: I hope people who refer to it as "5DC" or "5D Classic" get out of bed in the morning, walk toward the bathroom, and stub their toes on the door frame as they're going to pee. Every morning. Forever.

Then 1DC is 1D Classic.. But oh wait...
:)
I have an EOS-M camera lying somewhere, I should start calling it EOS-C then :)

SushiEater: This is it boys and girls. Fromm now on 138 seconds review is all we are going to get. :)

ET2: The "videographers" aren't that impressed with video capabilities

Thematic, how do you know that it performs worse than those?

How many decent FF cameras are there that cost under 4000 USD and with a decent no-crop 4K mode? A7RII sucks in FF 4K mode but shines in APS-C 4K mode.

RedFox88: Thought it came out at $3300 not $3500. Then the 5D2 was $2700, then 5D3 $3500.

Press release says 3300 USD

When you call it "classic", you can sell it with a higher price tag in Ebay, that's why...

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.

Gosh...

In reply to:

Photato: The sensor might be showing its age but the larger full frame still shows its superiority in terms of contrast due to less diffraction when compared to smaller sensors.

Can you give a link to a comparison that shows this difference?

Can you show this difference or "rendering" style? I cannot see that.

PanchoVilla: The Nikon D3/D700 buried the 5D into the ground and ignited the high ISO wars making megapixels irrelevant! Nikon for life!

Only in high ISO though. At low ISO (say up to ISO400), 5D has much better acuity.

Battle of 2 ideas:
It's a bad camera because it's Canon
It's a perfect camera because it's Canon

Suntan, snob? Amateur users will buy a telephoto lens only because it's not very expensive, and will take blurry photos. It's that simple.

Those that you link are niche product, we are talking about a product that amateurs will buy and "try" to take nice pictures, and what they'll find at the end is useless junky blurs due to shake.

Otherwise you cannot understand? I'm not that smart and creative but let me try again:

A 300mm lens without VR is like a 4-leg chair with 1 leg broken.
A 300mm lens without VR is like a computer with 56K dial-up connection.
A 300mm lens without VR is like a lasagna without sauce.
A 300mm lens without VR is like a plane without empennage.

I mean, crippled.

This is not D3400, this is D3300s.
