    Default Very pleased with 5D Mark IV

    At Christmas I was fortunate to be able to buy myself a 5D Mark IV, so far I am very pleased with it.
    To some the changes from the 5D Mark III were only incremental but it has proved a good upgrade in a few areas.
    Key for me was the noise performance, in low light and and at high ISO usable images are easier to achieve and the images look noticeably better.
    The touch screen was something I thought I would not use but it does aid speedier navigation and quicker changes to settings etc.
    I have been very pleased with performance and have found it a worthy upgrade.

    agree Andy, but its the focusing in low light thats also a massive boost - Touch screen if I'm honest I'm still trying to get use too

    Definitely Ian, the focus is more solid and quick with less hunting in low light. I have been amazed at some of the situations its coped with.

    I loved my 5D Mklll, but am loving the 5D MklV even more.

    One hell of a camera, albeit a hefty price hike from the Mklll.

    I tested its low light capabilities with a lee big stopper and during daylight focused locked straight away...not bad :)

    Indeed, that is pretty impressive.

    I use both a 5D III and a 5D IV. The old III is still a great camera but the IV is awesome. As soon as the light level drops the Mk IV comes into its own. Focusing is the first benefit, low noise in dark areas, improved high ISO performance, improved dynamic range, Wi Fi, and I could go on. The more I use it the more I love it. That said I shall continue to use the Mk III as well as when the conditions are less exacting, it still produces the goods.

    I could understand you still wanting to use the MkIII if the conditions don't push the camera which really are few, but surly with the larger image size I don't understand why ?

    When printing at A3 there absolutely no visible difference between the Mk 3 and the Mk 4. I use both for the convenience of not having to change lenses. In the studio I have a prime portrait lens on one and a prime lens for full length shots on the other. When out I have one with a 24mm - 70mm Zoom and the other with a 70mm - 200mm Zoom. Outdoors I hate changing lenses and in the studio it is just a faster way to work. The fixation with pixel count is an amateur thing, after all the professionals with their 1DX Mk11 manage to cope with just 20.2 mp.

    If I could discern a visible difference I would always use the Mk 4 but in good lighting conditions the difference can only be discerned if you Pixel peek or decide to print and incredibly severe crop, and I do neither of these things.

    I very nearly didn't buy the Mk 4 Because I was concerned that the additional pixels might throw up diffraction problems with some of my lenses.

    I kept my 5DIII, but purely as a backup in case anything happened to my Mark IV in the future.
    I'll use my Mark IV as my primary in all cases, I don't see a reason to use my Mark III unless forced to.
