Lowlight aside, if I didn't do paid work, I wouldn't own a 5DIV. It's only a good camera depending on what you want out of it. What I like is it's reliable, I can use it in the rain, it has 2 card slots, a great lowlight AF system, I can assign separate buttons for back-button One-Shot and AI-Servo on the fly, it does an amazing job at AWB-W indoors (I no longer use WB presets or Custom with grey cards), an extra toggle on the back I assign ISO (camera doesn't leave my face to change it) and it has excellent Ev recovery surpassing the 6D and 5DIII, maybe not as good as a D810 or A7RII but it's the whole package I bought, not just DR. There are situations where I have to use flash, such as shooting interiors, I have 1-3 off camera and I followup with masking and fixing verticals in Photoshop. The other day I did a headshot for a banker and I used monolights and reflectors, followed again in Ps with skin retouching, dodging/burning etc. When I do weddings, flashes+Magmods are a staple, the 30MP and Ev latitude are welcome whether correcting, cropping, or creativity.scotsum wrote: ↑Mar 12th, 2017 4:26 pmabit OT here, but having no experience with the big Canon dslr's but I'm guessing its a level up in IQ due to the full frame sensor. however I'm getting awesome low light performance mating my Oly EM5ii with a pana summilux 15mm f1.7 or even a cheap pana 25mm lumix G (B&H sale @usd99 coupla years back). I've yet to find a situation where I NEED a flash.
how much better low light performance is the Canon 5D4 over my combo?
Between even the A7RII and the 5DIV, the jist of it starts at 13:00:
But honestly, for personal stuff, I could easily get by with an APSC or MFT ILMC and no or very little editing. Btw, the 5DIV is not a good 4K video camera, it is 1.7 crop which affects lens choice and uses huge MJPEG files, the reason being reliability again, that codec and cropping does not require active cooling in a weather sealed body. Also there are no Zebras or C-log. That's why I'm looking at Panasonic options.
