The only time I find IS useful on a tripod is with 400-700mm lenses once the light is dying and shutter speeds come down to 1/50 or so. For wide angle IS is always off, forgetting to turn it off has cost me a fair few blurred shots. If I am shooting wide angle on a tripod then I am mostly shooting 1 - 30 secs.

Has anyone purchased an LCD screen protector for their 5D4? I am wondering how the touch sensitivity is with one...

I never had an issue with the LCD before for my use... however with the new touchscreen features the screen will get a lot of rubbing now. Overtime regardless what anyone says you will put small swirls in the glass. Frankly this won't matter to most but to some it does.

I'm still on the fence over upgrading from my 5d mark III and have a question. I got my hands on a mark IV with a 50mm 1.4 in Adorama's store yesterday. It felt much 'snappier' to focus than my mark III - like it just 'went' to the focus point rather than any hesitation and this was in a pretty dimly lit store. The mark III is no slouch but this seemed much faster.

Now, I didn't have my mark III with me nor do I own the lens in question so... those who have upgraded, is my observation correct or was I just too excited? Is it really that much more deliberate?

The general consensus is that the AF is more positive to lock on to a subject and faster overall .

+1 on that.

It is more of an improvement in AF than I would have expected, or frankly, even thought possible :)

Also, never seems to miss focus. Never is a big word, but I am not seeing many oof shots that are not my fault.

I honestly think they didn't change anything on the AF module. The wider range is due to the mirror redesign allowing the points to be spread vertically and I think the biggest gains we are seeing is just the AF module having a faster processor behind pushing the poop out of it.

I am pretty sure cross points and EV-3 is all different than the 5D3.... so there were indeed AF changes in the hardware.

Snippet taken from web...

It is built around a new 30.4MP CMOS sensor and uses the Digic 6+ processor. The AF system is from the flagship 1D X Mark II and contains 61 AF points (41 of which are cross-type) with up to 24% expanded vertical coverage compared with the system in the Mark III. The center point is sensitive to -3EV in One Shot (AF-S) mode (in Live View the sensor is sensitive to -4EV with a fast lens).

This seems a very strange statement coming from someone who themselves has posted about the improvements in AF tech with the 5D4?

There is a lot of technical data, and our own experimenting on this forum, including yours, (number of AF points we can use @ f/8, speed of AF with T-Cons, dual pixel AF, etc.) that would rule out the only difference being a mirror change and processor speed. Much more fine tuning appears to have gone into the entire system. This is the 1Dx2 AF system, which really is a different animal form the one in the 1Dx and 5D3.
