i've been really unlucky with my 5D4, first copy (very first shipment) had issues where all my canon lenses (ironically the sigma somehow fared better) would front focus using outer AF points, once that was fixed i noticed when in live view there would be a blue strip on top and bottom of lcd...and later on started seeing "bands" across the screen with what looks like interference and it would actually show up in the videos...got that body replaced after going back and forth to canon for months

second body i had the occasional body won't turn on after going to sleep situation and also occasionally lenses won't auto focus...like it won't drive the lens, turning it on/off won't work (with the failure to wake up after going to sleep) i had to physically remove then reinsert battery for it to start again, it was fixed when the PCB was replaced

but now i've noticed and confirmed (i noticed it this even before the PCB was replaced) with my second body is that when i do long exposure (and not even that long, like 2 mins) the images would be glittered with what looks like dark current noise...before it would only show up in the shadow areas and if i pushed the files a little (not much, even just 1-2 stops) but few nights ago when i went out to shoot sunset i can just start to make out the specks even just opening up the raw file in lightroom having done no processing...a 1-2 stop push would make it to glaringly obvious even in some midtone areas

i've sent raw files to Canon for them to have a look hopefully hear back from them soon, it's so frustrating because when it works it's a brilliant camera

first time being early adopter as well...my 5D3 i picked up after a year and half after release whereas my 5D4 i picked up on release day paying full price :cry:

well I spoke too soon. Used my camera today as a walk around camera and so it was able to go to sleep mode several times, it took from 3 to as much as 12 seconds to wake from sleep .......

The metering is linked to AF point in LV. 5div has excellent DPAF sytem, I don’t use VF as much anymore.

I had both and I made my choice, to me the 5D4 was a lot more bang for the buck, the only extras I could use from the 1DX2 was the spot metering linked to focusing point, the high ISO performance was not that noticeable if at all in my case, and the 14fps while it's cool I don't see myself using it much lol. But it all comes down to what you primarily shoot. I shot with the 5D3 and 1DX before, the 5D4 replaced both for me

I had several issues with my 1st 5D4 body. All the PCBs were replaced twice due to wakeup latency issues and then there was oil or some other kind of fluid on the sensor that was a complete nightmare to deal with. Over half a dozen trips to Canon and yet another wakeup issue later my body was replaced. No issues since.

On the subject of 5D4 or 1DX2 my 5D4 gets a lot more use. Then again, my 7D2 gets more use than the both of them combined. One isn't less or more desirable to use than the other depending on the task.

Glad I brought this subject up and that I'm not alone. Sorry you all are having issues though and I will now definitely contact Canon.

From what I've seen the 5D4 is probably closer to the 1Dx2 in terms of high iso quality than the 5D3 was to the 1Dx. Reports on AF performance vary, but I'm told the 5D4 is pretty competitive with the 1Dx. In any event; it's certainly a great camera (well all four are tbh).


Camera, some lenses, too little time, too little talent

I was pretty lucky to have this Northern Harrier in focus flying low behind these alders. Taken in Nova Scotia, Nov 5th, 2017.

What a superb environmental shot! Never seen anything that shows the Harrier doing it's thing better.

Expecting mine today..

Wow.. you guys are making me nervous -? With all these issues..;-)a

Ive been lucky so far with cameras of all brands That ive owned (canon ,sony,fuji ,panasonic).. haven't had any issues at all.
Hopefully my experience with 5d4 is as good as it has been with all other cameras (in the sense of never needing to use the warranty)

I agree. I'm curious as to why the photo hasn't been given one of those little gold cups?


Image editing ok; C&C always welcome.

Wanted to post as I'm the one who mention the wake up issue. Mine is not doing it anymore. In fact when I went to the PhotoPlus Expo in NYC, I spoke with a Canon rep and he said that sometimes happens to him then it goes away. Guess he fixed it LOL!

I had a problem recently. iT was weird images would not preview on the screen.

I put it down to changing too many things. What I mean is, I was shooting a wedding. I was changing Lenses, turned the flash on and off and flipped between manual and AV mode a lot. Are you meant to turn off the camera when swapping lenses???

I restarted the camera and it was all good.

Apart from that it's been pretty much flawless. 10/10 from me

I would consider that just normal use and should not cause a properly-functioning camera to misbehave.

I don't turn my camera off to change lenses, batteries, or memory cards. Just be sure the IS has stopped "spinning" before detaching the lens and that your memory card is not being written to before opening the memory card or battery door.
