I pulled my 5D3 out of the bag last night and shot a few frames. I do love it ... and it's not very old, maybe 5 months max with 20k on it as I was late to the 5-series party but, I'll be looking at a 5D4 this weekend and we'll see ;-)a

My 5DIII still gets plenty of use. The last festival I photographed it produced 1597 images, the 5D4 2500. It ain't going anywhere ;)

Picked up my 5D4 today. Coming from a 7D and my first full frame DSLR, I'm excited to see what this thing can do.

Made the same move and I've taken a total of 5 shots that used proper settings. All other pics have been using high ISO indoors of random things I couldn't ever dream of my 7D even seeing.

ISO6400 shots in a crappy hotel room that when pixel peeping are something I can feel good about! I don't often run prints but I'm gonna have to take some more crap pics just to see how far I can take the camera and still produce good results. Not sure why I waited so long but the wait was worth it given the joy I have now.

Are you sure you should admit this in public? ;-)a Too many ways to take that! Title Fairy fodder served up!

They look good but slowly my standards are consistently improving and still much prefer under 1600 now. I have zero issues shooting all the way to 32,000 though and will whenever I need to. I put shutter speed as a priority over ISO.

But I still prefer very clean ISO 100.... that which the 5D4 produces wonderful images at.

That's why I'm taking the bad pics first, once I become accustom to what ISO 100 on this thing can do I'll not wanna go back. Low light was the main reason for the upgrade so I gotta work that and see what can be done.

If anyone is looking for an L-plate for the 5D4 i just picked up a Leofoto L-plate that is supposed to be for the 5d3 but it works perfect with access to all side ports and battery

Can you take a side photo showing the curve makeup of the L plate to the back/bottom corner of the camera. Does it truly fit snug or is it fit with gaps?

For $30 I already ordered one just to try out but if you respond quick enough and I can see good on the photo I may cancel. I want a flush fit.

Dumb question..... What is to be gained using a L Plate?
