[Amazon.ca] Canon EOS 5D Mark IV with EF 24-105mm F4L is II USM Lens Kit, Black - $3,799

Seems to be a decent deal... ** Only 3 left in stock at Amazon.ca

Same price at the Canon Canada eStore as well (but OOS): https://estore.canon.ca/en-CA/catalog/E ... II-USM-Kit

Biggest flaw of this camera is the screen - it doesn't move or tilt. It's outdated thanks to Sony. Fair deal would be $2000.

The lens alone can go for $1500+. Would be smoking hot if you can find this for $2000

Canon chose to keep that kind of screen on the 5D, cheaper Canons have the screen that you can move around

I assume they kept that style because pros prefer it that way?

Exactly. The new Canon R6 outscales the Canon 5D4 in everyway thanks to new tech. Mirrorless has paved the way for this. And most professionals wouldn't use the included lens thanks to the F4. 5D4 was worth much more ages ago when the industry was stagnant. Even if you're an casual shooter, a mirrorless with eye-AF is more idiot-friendly for anyone shooting just family or even animal/pet pictures.

Wouldn't professionals benefit as well? If the camera can reliably lock on faces/eyes (and track them) faster than you can spot focus or manually focus, isn't that a benefit to you when working?

Of course R6 out scales the 5D MKIV as the latter is 4 years old now. You forgot the most important part going forward and that’s the lens as they are now RF mount. So new glass offerings in EF will be little if any.

Actually Eye-AF existed in 1-series body in film era, but canon didn't continue that in subsequent release. I believe, feedbacks from Pros were not encouraging.

I'm guessing anyone in the market for a 5D IV doesn't really care too much about what's the latest and greatest. They're probably using it as a work tool. When I was having my family portraits done, I asked the photographer what she would get if her Nikon D800 broke. She said something to the effect of "Probably another new or refurbished D800 if I can find one and if not, a D850".

For sure people working in studios do not care at all for the size/weight or tech's

If going for new camera, there is no reason to go EF instead of RF. Just buy an EF adaptor to use with your mirrorless.
Best shopping deals I got from here:
Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom $300, ZTE Blade V8 Pro $175, Fluld 55' 4k TV $360

even i still enjoy using big cameras like the 1 series, i have a 1dx and tried the II. wife got the RP and it is definitely much higher tech. even on this budget model the autofocus is just so much easier to use and works well for most cases. the electronic viewfinder i have some problem at night trying to autofocus on the satellites last time i saw them all lined up, the 1dx focus easily or even manual focus is fine since you can see stuff in the real viewfinder. the electronics one all i see is noise and i can't see the actual things in the sky, also the LCD as well can't see anything. so maybe someone can tell me how to autofocus with these mirrorless. moon is easy but the smaller things is very hard. lens was f2.8. not that bright but should be ok.

This isn’t a great deal as it’s already pretty old tech especially with the latest release of the R5/6. the 24-105 is usually $800 on top of the camera.

$2000 is unrealistic for this combo. The lowest I would predict them going is $3200-$3400 for this combo.

If the 5d4 fits their needs and budget, there's no reason to get an RF. In the future they can get the RF, and an adaptor, just like they can today.

I personally don't want a camera without an optical viewfinder.

Cameras are like art not really old tech and they maintain their value. Even a old basic t3i from a decade ago still goes for over 300 on ebay.

The average person could not tell the difference between a photo taken with a 5D Mark IV and a r6
