    With Nikon just announcing their new Z series mirrorless system, and Canon rumoured to be very soon following suit with their own full-frame mirrorless system, it's a risky time to be dropping serious cash on a 2 y.o. DSLR.

    •  

      Agreed. I'm in the market for a new camera and was moving preference from Canon DSLR to Sony mirrorless FF then all of a sudden Nikon dropped the Z series and Canon is rumoured to be launching a mirrorless on the 5th of September.

        Nikon has kept prices in line with similar sony mirrorless cameras while being years behind for native lenses roadmap. Canon will be interesting to see.

        •  

          Yes but with Nikon's huge range of existing high performance glass that can be adapted cheaply, they're not under quite the same pressure as Sony was with regards to fleshing out a lens lineup.

          Canon will be interesting…I shoot Canon and have a large collection of glass so am hoping their new system still has an EF mount.

          This has to be the big seller of the nikon system over sony. Nikon have a huge range of lenses which you can buy on the used market for reasonable prices (second only to canon). You can adapt your Nikon or Canon lenses to Sony with a metabones or similar, but functionality can be hit and miss.

        •  

          @dm01:
          …. a few months back canon registered a patent for a new lens mount

        •  

          @BiotBargin: Yes but Canon register new patents all the time, many of which never seem to show up in new products, so it's not a definitive indicator.

        •  

          @BiotBargin: Looks like you're right - new mount and EF via an adaptor. I'm actually quite impressed with what's leaked today - some nice looking RF lenses too.

      If you want to go mirrorless. But if you're heavily invested in Canon EF lenses like most people looking to buy a 5D mkiv there will be tradeoffs due to need for lens adaptors.

      Canon Rumors and other sites have covered the rumours a lot and it seems unlikely Canon will launch a FF pro camera first time around. They will dip their toe in the water with a quality camera as to not canabalise their DSLR market share, and then in a few years add a better one. Next 5D upgrade isn't due until 2020 and personally I'm happier with the DSLR form factor and the features pro SLRs provide. There's no advantage for shooting video (besides maybe IBIS) if the below rumours are true….

      Rumored specifications

      28MP full frame sensor
      Dual Pixel Auto Focus
      IBIS (In Body Image Stabilisation)
      10fps shooting
      4k@30fps
      1080p@60fps
      Priced $1,900

      If this specification list is to be believed, we’re not looking at a “high end” mirrorless camera and it’s definitely not targeted at professionals.

        I'm hoping that it is a full frame to challenge the Sony A7III. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

        as to not canabalise their DSLR market share

        As a long time Canon users, this is what frustrates me the most about Canon as a Brand/Company. They roll out new technology very slowly as to not upset sales of their higher models, but guess what? Canon is getting left behind as other companies are charging a head as they embrace new technology.

        With all that being said though, I'm still on this slow moving bandwagon :)

          Canon's market share would beg to differ. While not an insignificant proportion, those who actually need/care about cutting edge features aren't as many as the vocal minority on the internet tend to make out.

          With all that being said though, I'm still on this slow moving bandwagon :)

          Likewise.

      •  

        I really don't see much point in trying to go mirrorless. Unless there is a fundamental leap in image quality, the laws of physics dictate that you need the certain glass to achieve certain levels of quality. I don't think there's any shortcuts in that regard, and so when you're already carrying quality but heavy L lens glass, the body's form factor should compliment the lens. Mirrorless bodies I just find cumbersome.

        •  

          Yes I agree. Mirrorless should result in a reduction in body size (no mirror/prism/autofocus subassembly), an increase in durability for the same reasons, and should eventually push manufacturing costs down since there are less moving parts so assembly is simpler, quicker, and needing less calibration. Autofocus should become more precise and accurate, too, and having a shallower lens mount provides a little more flexibility for lens design.

          But yes, when using larger/heavier lenses, a camera needs to be a certain size and design to make operation comfortable - I wouldn't want anything much smaller than my 6D in that regard.

          Mirrorless is still in it's early years though…give it some time.

      Depends on your usage I think. Mirrorless are great, but far from perfect and I wouldn't rely on them for professional work yet, the Z series doesn't even have dual card slots. Like the transition from film to digital, DSLR will still have their place for quite a few more years.

      This is a great price for the 5D IV, although it was always overpriced to start with…

      •  

        Thom Hogan published a great little piece on the dual-card slot thing, and why it's not the big deal people make it out to be.

        • +1 vote

          No, you're right, it's not a huge issue, my primary camera for many years was a 6D which only had one slot. However, even with backup bodies and glass, it is nice to have an extra layer of redundancy :)

        • +1 vote

          @unknown: I still run a 6D as backup to my 5Dsr - it's a great little body. Thom's point was that the XQD card is much more rugged than both SD (thin/flimsy) and CF cards (can cause bent pins in body) and that he's yet to hear of one failing. But I agree - redundancy is good.

        •  

          @dm01: I'm yet to have an SD card fail in my camera. Unless you're capturing one off moments professionally, I don't see the need for a second slot.

        •  

          @macrocephalic: Many years ago I had a CF card go funny in a Nikon D70s, but only a couple of images were affected, and it was just casual shooting. Years later a Nikon D3 had a write error that corrupted three images, but again casual shooting and of no consequence. Those are the only issues I've ever had, in maybe somewhere approaching a million shots I'd guess.

          I like SD cards in cameras - makes transferring to my MBP easy as it's an older model with a slot.

  •  

    Time will tell. Should be announced some time in September.

    It's a very good price for a 5D4. But with some new bodies on the horizon … tough to know. My interest is in low light performance primarily, and I can't help but think the new mirrorless body may have the edge.

  •  

    I bought the 5d mk iv on release, upgraded from a 450d. If a mirrorless system suits you for less weight then go for it, but my 450d lasted me 10+ years with no issues and i currently believe the 5d mk iv will last me significantly longer, i purely upgraded for full frame and the technology while it improves with time, it generally isnt necessary i never use the 4k video and have no interest in it, if the 450d was full frame id probably be still using it now.

    my point is dont let future tech stop you from buying now as you'll never end up with anything.

    •  

      There's future tech, and then there's major disruptive shifts in technology. The 5DIV is a great body, but in many ways was already trailing other makers' cameras on release, hence why I think it could be a risky move to buy one this week with Canon about to reveal their mirrorless hand next week.

      •  

        mirrorless tech has been out for longer than DSLRs, everyone gave up on them due to their low performance and only recently made a come back with people claiming that the Sony mirrorless options were better, as far as i can tell the hype over sony is already dying off, professionals will generally chose DSLRs as they are designed for professionals, they are the ones upgrading every year creating sales while your standard tourist will be happy with mirrorless option with a stock lightweight lens for 10 years. Any pros out there that switched to mirrorless still have 2kg lens attached to the front of it so saving minimal body weight and losing things such as CF support, dual card support, battery run times, solid manganese bodies, etc isnt worth it.

        technology will always change/improve but tried and true formulas dont disappear easily.

    •  

      For me, it's all about sensor performance. I upgraded from a 550D to a 6D a couple of years ago and am happy that I did. Being able to shoot at an ISO5000 and get decent images is a big deal to me. If you're always shooting in a controlled environment with decent lighting then an older camera is fine.

      •  

        Yeah the 6D is great. I have a 20D I keep around purely for the odd bit of product photography that's gonna end up on the web - it has more than enough resolution and with some lighting the files it generates are superb. It's all about the right tool for the job.

    Love my 5D IV. Bought it about 6 months ago for not much more and would do it again.
