Now I know I’m in the canon forums and I personally own canon gear, but if you had access to the d4s as well as the 1d mark iv(and all lenses), which would you choose?

My school has a better relationship with nikon so we get a lot more equipment from them.

If it were the d4s vs the 1dx, it would be a whole different situation lol but sadly my school doesn’t have any at the moment.

D4s is better

I'd stick with the 1DIV. Nikon cameras are like Nissan cars. Each and every one of them is just ugly. Well, the 240Z was an amazing car, but nothing since.

D4s and it isn't close. I just sold my 1D4, which was an alright camera, but the D4s is on another level.

The D3s and the D4 are also superior to the 1D4.

Apples to oranges. The 1D4 is 5 years old this month. The D4s is only months old. Not really a fair comparison.

This statement is correct. The 1D X is competitive, however. But a camera that was released in 2009 isn't competitive with a camera that was released in 2014.

It's important to remember that your lens investment will be timeless. So while you will always find yourself upgrading camera bodies, you don't need to upgrade lenses for decades.

Many pros still shoot on lenses that they bought back in the 90s. Lenses don't become obsolete with each new version update. Only camera bodies do.

Smh, Nissan GTR is the greatest car they have released since the R34. The Launch control feature is simply amazing.

Its what the OP asked. The D4s is way ahead of the 1D4 that I wouldnt even cross shop between the two

Don't take it so personally guys. No one asked how old each camera was. Looks like op has access to one or the other, so wants to know which one is better. Simple as.

D4s is better if you need cleaner files with more DR, better AF and more FPS. BUT. If you need the extra FL supplied by the 1.3x crop and don't need to shoot at ISO4000 then 1DIV wins.

The proper lenses can always make up for the field of view differences. I would definitely take advantage of the newer tech in the D4s.

1Dmk4 for me personally. I wouldn't be able to shoot with a D4s since none of my lenses would fit it. :)

The Nikon D300s is still competitive with the Canon 70D. :D
