I suppose I need to answer the question about trading my 6d away for the 7d2 or keep it for back up.
But if the 5d4 really is as good or as fast focusing like the 7d2 I suppose there is no need for it next to the 5d4.
Even with the improved pixel count, I could crop 1.6x to make up for the wildlife advantage.

Try the 5D4 in situations where you would use a 7D2. In my own experience, the 5D4 was more than capable. I did have a 7D2 for several years before upgrading to the 5D4 and 1DX2 last year. I sold the 7D2 to help fund the others, and I haven't wanted it back. That isn't true for everyone; it's just my opinion.

I was, too. However, I've found that the IQ from the 5D4 is very close to that of my 1DX2. I never had a 6D, but I think the 1DX2 and 5D4 have improved image quality over the 6D. With both the 5D4 and 1DX2, I will shoot at ISO 25600. There is noise, but nothing that Lightroom can't clean up. Here's one example from the 5D4:

QUOTED IMAGE


I used to shoot bands in clubs at 25600 on the 6D and while the noise wasn't great, it wasn't unusable. Losing the ability to do that worries me so that is good to hear. Bigger venues and 6400 was absolutely beautiful.

I guess it's time to fill out a CPW form...

Gorgeous John.

Thanks David. In some ways I'm still figuring this body out.. in particular how much headroom I have in the highlights. It's definitely different than the 5DII but I haven't gotten a really good feel for it yet. I REALLY wish they would come up with a RAW histogram.

Hey everyone! I just ordered a refurbished 5d4 from Canon. I couldn't pass up $2800!
Upgrading from the 6d, which I am about to trade for a 7d2.
I'd love to know if anyone is shooting sports or wildlife such as birds in flight and how has the 5d4 handled the fast movement?
I imagine since the sensor is similar to the 1dx2, quick moving subjects wouldn't be a challenge for the 5d4..

Thanks in advance!

I shoot football with it and it handles it just fine. Just make sure your AF case mode is right, usually on 2 or 4 and it shouldnt be a problem.

Anyone know if the 5D4 can keep the back screen lit to show settings, but turn off when you put it up to your face? One of my cameras did this but I forget which one (I think the 50D).

Very nice feature. Right now I'm stuck constantly cycling thru with the Info button so I don't blind myself at night.

I don't want to turn it off with the Info button because then when I want to select an AF point, I can't see it on the screen or use the touch screen to select which I do sometimes. (among many other things as well.) And even a half-press of the shutter turned it off on my older camera. It really was a nice setup.

I would love this! but I dont think this camera has it. Id also love for it to detect your face when close so thr touch screen would disable. My nose changes settings quite often.
