I have talked myself into and out of this camera so many times my head hurts. The focus system seem amazing. Then you read of outer focal point issues. You see great examples of straight out of the camera then see random shots where white balance problems pop up ect. ect ect....Was just about to pull the trigger on the mrk 4 when I find out the pocket wizards do not work and a time line for a fix may not come anytime soon. I have about half a dozen senior shoots to do in the next few weeks and that really becomes a problem...ahhhh so frustrating ...Did the mark 3 have these types of issues when it first came out? Did firmware upgrades fix any initial issues with the mrk3 ?
Agree it's always best to wait about six months, but you know how the "must have it now" bug bites. You make excellent points and immediate needs are relative. However, after all of the reading I have done, I think the only undesirable issue that will never be changed or fixed is the 4K video limitations. Personally, I couldn't give two hoots about 4K. 1080P is good enough for me since I do not intend to use a DSLR as a cinema camera. I would need to see more examples of the random white balance problems you are referring to. I haven't seen this stick out as a significant issue in all the stuff I've been reading.
