Thanks. This Eastern Screech Owl(red morph) was photographed in a Live Oak tree not far from my home. The opening the owl is perched in is where a limb was cut off the tree quite a few years ago after a storm. Late in the day the owl would climb up from its slumber and perch in the sun to warm up before the night's hunt. I used the Canon 500L (f4) with the 1D Mark IV, and added the Canon 1.4 ver. II teleconverter for the first image.

The guys can attack if provoked or mating season he was 6-8 mtrs away and was easily my height so I was very wary as he was!


I am liking this combo and it can only get better, the 400f 5.6 is up on ebay and has had 40 views and 7 watchers, when it goes a 1.4 converter and lens coat is on the cards.:-)

So true ... I know about a half a dozen people with a 1D (one has a 1D X, and the others have 1D4's) and all agree with you now, although none of us believed it before we got them ... and we can't really explain why.

I have had a 1DMkIIN & 1DIV & then this year, bought a 6D for travel. I am getting consistently sharper shots on the 6D compared to the same lenses on the 1DIV.

The 1DIV is not a fan of zooms & doesn't hold focus from minimum to maximum zoom which is pathetic considering the cost & Canon not fixing it when lenses & camera were sent in for calibration.

I haven't shot any action with the 6D so can't comment on focus for fast moving subjects but haven't used the MkIV since I got it.

A good example of how bad the 1DIV is:- when I put the Sigma f/1.4 50mm ART lens on, I have to microadjust +20 on the camera & +6 on the Sigma dock to get reasonable focus. On the 6D it is only +1 on the camera for razor sharp images @ f/1.4

I couldn't disagree more....shooting mine with the Canon 100-400 Mk 1, Canon 70-200 2.8 Mk 2 and now with the Canon 100-400 Mk2 and the camera rarely misses a beat.
There is something weird going on with yours.

The differences in micro adjust values is completely irrelevant and it is absolutely normal to get different values when mounting lens X to different camera bodies.

Cheers.

I too would have to agree to disagree also. The one thing the MkIV was made for is action - fast action - and it does not disappoint. The only time I find mine struggles is acquiring focus on low-contrast moving subjects in low-light, whereas the 6D has the advantage in low-light as I understand it. I have a number of zooms I use on this body, and all produce very sharp results. I in fact was completely blown away with the results from a recently acquired Sigma 150-600 Sport, as I was worried about image quality having been spolied with the 70-200 IS II. Very impressed with the 150-600 results and am actually considering picking up another MkIV as I have a 7D and 5D that don't see much use anymore as my 5D MkII is brought along as back up most often. Wouldn't trade my MkIV for much, other than maybe a 1Dx :)
