Hell no... just get the Amazon store card. 5% back on all purchases. Then, just set the card to autopay from your bank account. That way, you get 5% back on all Amazon purchases. I buy a s%*tload of things from Amazon every month and getting 5% back on everything is sweet.

Edit: The 5% is for Prime members.

About two years ago I would have agreed with you. But Amazon is forced to collect state taxes where I live (7%). So that changed things for me.
Now all camera related gear is bought at B&H (no tax & free shipping) and using a Citi Double Cash Card (2% back on ALL purchases with no limits).

You're right. Living in Oregon, I sometimes forget about the fact that Amazon collects sales tax.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

The D500 is not a good comparison IMO. It's targetted at a different market than the 5DIV. It's supposed to be the best crop body for the sort of things the D5 is good at - sports, journalism and other fast paced uses where frame rate and super AF is king. Its natural competitor is the 7D2, not the 5D3 or 5D4.

3 seconds worth of buffer isn't all that bad for a jack of all trades camera like the 5D4 and I suspect only those who try to make it do the job of a 1DX2 or 7D2 are going to fill the buffer.

No question though that it'd be nice if Canon had spent a couple of extra Yen on buffer memory and card slots (why not use the same slots as the 1DX2? previously the 5D2 and 5D3 had the same slots as the 1D of the time) to push the camera a little beyond what is currently on the market rather than just about matching current competitors

That's true, but I was using it as an example of an extreme amount of buffer (challenging the D5 and 1Dx2) but priced way under the 5D4. I.e. it's not a case that it needs D5 or 1Dx2 money to get you that sort of internal RAM for a deep buffer - 50 shots on the D500 would have looked good; 200 is incredible. Plus, the 7D2 (intended for similar things as the D500/D5/1Dx2) only has room for 31 shots.

I guess it may be a Canon philosophy to go for a ~3 second buffer unless it's a 1D model (if you look across Canon's range, almost all the bodies have a RAW buffer depth something close to 3 seconds at the camera's maximum fps).

I'd be moderately surprised if the 5D4 didn't have enough internal RAM to allow for a bigger buffer depth (so it'll be an arbitrary firmware restriction); and if it doesn't, they certainly won't have saved much from the build price by compromising on slightly smaller capacity parts.


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

Yes, that's what I heard, too. After 30 days from purchase you can use the $200 in their photo department.

Neither can I - but there's still plenty of very hopeful Mark III pricing on there! Maybe the news of the Mark IV hasn't filtered through yet...

I've often wondered what happens to the previous gen new cameras. Is it up to the store who has inventory to eat those losses or do they get to send them back?

Maybe...and yes, the Mark III has dropped to below £2k...I'm tempted to go for that but as I'm a rare upgrader I think the Mk IV should be the one to get.

Talking to a buddy with a photography shop today. Uses a 6D mainly for most things.

He was excited the 5d4 was out because he can get a 5DIII cheap.

Does Adorama charge sales tax for online orders (out of state)?

Adorama only collects State taxes on behalf of NJ and NY (where we have a physical presence). So if shipping to another State, we would not have that obligation.
