The camera is so good. DPP is so bad.
Really impressed so far. AI Servo tracked my kid on a Merry-go-round at f1.4 - never would have happened with my mkIII.
I'm a Canon guy. Always have been, so I don't care to compare with other brands. But, for me and the way I use my camera, the upgrades over the mkIII are amazing.
The AF was great on the mkIII, but the mkIV just seems to have evolved and matured to be an AF Boss. I don't have unrealistic expectations, but in 24 hours of ownership the AF system has blown me away a handful of times. It is sure footed and faster (for what I do and the way I do it).
The ability to customize the menu is so freeing and I actually love the touchscreen (which I was sure I would hate).
I am more impressed than I expected.
I have no idea how to compare my mkIII files with my mkIV, without the luxury of Lightroom/Camera Raw (I did not realize how dependant I'd become...) but in DPP, I have not been able to create banding. For me that is huge. I took a very dark shadowed area (that still had detail) and pushed shadows up by "5" and then adjusted "Brightness adjustment" up three and still saw no banding. So that makes me very excited to see these files in a RAW conversion program I am comfortable with.
But DPP. Come on... Everything is so different. Color rendering, sharpening, the files seem so different from what I'm used to, it's crazy. I've been able to claw back a bit of comfort on import, but this is beyond frustrating. I want to use this camera for work, but I don't think I will. I don't feel like I'm going to be able to really get a feel for the files until Adobe, or Capture One release their support. Too bad.
Does anyone know how long it normally takes for Adobe to support new cameras?
