First outing, so it seems to work. Still working on the settings which are many. Also looks like my Sunway L bracket from the mark III will work so that's good news.

Right on. One of my several favourite test birds. You should be able to nail that with factory settings and one arm tied behind your back. That is a breeze for the 7D2.

Just wondering if you might reduce the 'Clarity' slider setting there - it looks like it is giving a bit of a dark halo?

These are small, but the ones out there are far away.

Having this much data to work with is giving me a little bit of struggle. Also full frame is new to me. I think its coming along ok.

You are having to deal with the same sort of issues that I am facing ... shooting a fast moving subject who doesn't give you the luxury of time to select a convenient shooting angle or find a nice unobtrusive background.

The camera is definitely up to it ... very fast and sophisticated auto-focusing, capable of delivering a good image in all kinds of lighting conditions, pretty fast continuous shooting and a great control system. It's a good camera.

What I find the real challenge is using a very capable camera in a way that delivers a good image for pictures of the youngest members of my family ... and, especially, a way that isolates the main subject ... or at least separates it more from distractions ... unless your aim is photo-journalism, that is. Where I have limited control over composition, I am working on better choice of lens and aperture, and better lighting ... plus doing everything I can do to get a better camera angle ... to help with improving separation of the main subject.


David.

Thanks, although I used very little.

First time stopping in to shoot pics of a friends Jiu-Jitsu class with the 5D4 and 24-70/2.8. Last time I was in I had the 7D2 with a 17-50/2.8 so this was just a tad bit wider. I have to remember to shoot wide to straighten as I end up in odd angles shooting and the horizon is always wonky. But as far as noise at the higher ISO I had no problems. I am loving this body more and more. Tomorrow night I will team it up with the 7D2 for ice hockey.

Honest question... I have heard this statement about full frame many times. What's so different about FF vs. crop, other than adjusting for the field of view? I know about the quality with the larger pixels, etc. but I often hear people suggesting like they have relearn something about shooting photos when they switch over to FF.

Again, not attacking your statement. Just wondering and trying to learn.

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.

In camera is field of view and a more accurate DOf with the lenses I know. On the computer it's more about the clarity and more data to work with. It's not a huge difference but it's noticeable to me in camera at times so I just have to adjust my brain a small bit.

How much better is it in low light vs 7dii. I use the 7dii for indoor sports with either a 70-200 2.8 or a 85 1.8 at f2.0. I'm usually at ISO 3200-6400 and it can get a bit grainy esp at 6400. How much better would a 5div be with 135 2.0? 1 stop? 1.5 stops?

I'll be able to tell tonight. Usually at 3200 at the ice rink with the 7D2 and that's about as high as I would really want to go.

After looking almost through the entire thread, I ask myself:

Are these shots so good because the majority of owners of 5D Mark IV's are good, or is this camera so much better than the 5D III?

It's page after page of great shots. You guys are making me want this one really bad...

I went to a dinner party last weekend. I told the chef the meal was delicious, you must have a really good stove.
