I typically leave under continuous high vs low. In low, it is slow enough to single tap.

I'm not sure if canon offers this, but one cool feature I like is self timer continuous 5 shot. Self timer for group shots can be annoying if you need up or need multiple. Self timer +5 somewhat solved the problem. Would like even more if possible, but 5 is real nice.

wireless trigger?

You don't work much with strobes, do you.

Strobes no, speedlites yes

Don't like the bulk and the setup involved.

I do have multiple sets of triggers, use the IR on occasion when, almost never use radio triggers. Radio would work best for what I described, but setup/takedown is too much of a hassle.

Edit: I'll use radios when I do strobes, so I don't have to be at the camera.

I had the same issue - I was using BBF and had turned off the AF on half press of the shutter. This also turns off tap and focus in Live View

With the arrival of the Mark IV, does it make the allure of the A7sII disappear? The A7sII plus metabones adapter weighs 26oz. The 5D4 weighs 28oz . That's a candy bar's worth of weight difference. Seems negligible. And if the IQ gap is largely closed, I would imagine the motivation to consider the Sony is not going to be there. Not trying to start a brand war, as the Sony is a fine camera, just curious.

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.

I dont know anyone who would realistically compare the A7sii to the 5Div.....

A7rii is more comparable since it has phase detect AF, and many similar features. And the metabones factor.... uh you can shoot native to avoid, sony's selection is pretty decent currently. You may think the size savings is negligible, then try to shoot the EOS-M series, the size is closer to that than a dslr. Weight wise, the cameras are very dense so they weigh quite a bit, still noticeably less than any 5/6D.

Agreed with the native lens selection - I was just talking about Canon shooters who would want to use their existing lenses with the Sony body. It does seem like the weight factor at least in that scenario isn't much of a decider. It's got to be based more on the features, etc.

Anyone have any low light high ISO pics they could display say 6400 ISO area. 90% of what I shoot is dance comps. Conditions are moving dancers in very poor and changing light conditions. Looking to see what improvement in high ISO is between the 5d3 and 5d4.

With 3 of 4 kids in dance... It's a very good improvement even at 6400. I like those parts when the lights are off and you have color lights on the stage and the ISO is up around 25600... unfortunately they were never really usable. I want them to be though the look is cool.

I know what you are talking about. I use spot metering to get around that. With the 5d3 I can get some really nice usable files around 6400 and still shoot at 1/600th to freeze the action. From everything I read the low light focusing is amazing and much improved and any improvement in high ISO noise will be a huge positive for what I shoot.

I shot little league at 6400 iso, parents loved it. It's very usable
