The circuitry was redesigned for the 80d giving a much needed improvement to the noise for their crop sensor.I'll bet Canon has not improved their sensor technology. While I understand they have just patented something in that direction, unless I'm mistaken it is unlikely to be in the 5D4 but despite having the biggest worldwide sales, they seem to be so needy of more income
The USA price is excluding sales tax isn't it? Granted, still the usual rip-off UK difference, but the collapsing exchange rate isn't helping...The introductory price is good news for existing 5D3 users, we can hold the used camera price for longer than anticipated. However I will not buy this camera in the UK sadly, same numbers as per USA but different monetary tags on it, seriously UK...
You are right it's more expensive than that in pounds.Its $3500 dollars not pounds
Converting that price to pounds and applying VAT, means that UK prices should be more like £3.2k. Kinda explains why they're 'generously' offering the increased trade in rate for pre-orders...You are right it's more expensive than that in pounds.
glad i'm not the only one who laughed. I'm not exactly poor but £2350 for a 16-35 f2.8 - b'waahahahahahahalol, just saw that on Wex. Have Canon employed Sony's pricing manager
Yes exactly.. why this commission? They are invaluable, and they're on the 80D and further down the pecking order, I don't get the logic, unless its something to with the, not having developed a floppy out screen with the rugged build commanded by the 5D series?So it now focuses better in liveview mode, but they didn't put in a flippy/tilty screen..
Agreed, but if you have built up a comprehensive Canon lens system then being able to get all that for the price of the 5D4 is meaningless.The pricing is absurd. It'll no doubt be a superb camera, and (on paper, at least) I love some of the innovations, but two bodies would set you back over £7k. You could get one hell of a system for that price with Nikon, Fuji or Sony.
A quick look on Panamoz shows I can get 2xD750 bodies, a Sigma 35mmART, and a Nikon 85mm 1.8G and it comes to £100 less than the MkIV. Less still if you buy the excellent Nikon 35mm 1.8G instead of an ART.
I totally get that. But the 5D is also the bread and butter camera - the body for wedding photographers etc. Many of them shoot with sigma lenses, or have a limited range of lenses. I know loads of Canon shooting wedding photographers that jumped ship to the D750 with no regrets. Many of them managed to actually make a profit from shifting their second-hand gear and buying new (albeit grey market) nikon gear.Agreed, but if you have built up a comprehensive Canon lens system then beignable to get all that for the price of the 5D4 is meaningless.
I know several people who have expressed a serious interest in this camera and they all have in excess of £15000 worth of lenses. It's very unlikely they will change over.
