I'm interested to know what you like better about processing the 5DIV Mark ??
Comparing my 80D and 5D4 in post, the two main benefits I see w/ the 5D4 are:
1) more latitude when dealing with high ISO noise; the 5D4 just has a smoother noise profile that's easier to smooth out while maintaining detail; aka, the 80D turns to mush faster if you aren't careful
2) a few more megapixels with which to crop
The 5D4 files are a joy to work with.
Thanks Jake. I was thinking that for my Yellowstone trip I would use the 100-400mm lens on the 7D2 & use my 24-70mm lens of the 5D4. So far I have been really happy with those combinations but I haven’t thrown on the 1.4 converter yet & was wondering if that affected the performance of the lens. I also haven’t put the 100-400 lens on my 5D4 body yet.
So many decisions......
Maureen, this would be a fantastic travel setup for wild life. So much versatility! The 1.4x III definitely slows things down a bit AF speed-wise, and the AF loses some "grip", meaning that it'll hunt a little more because it isn't grabbing onto target as well. I usually stick to my center point on my 80D when using the TC in order to use the camera's most accurate AF point. In situations with good target contrast, you'll be fine.
IQ-wise, the combo will deliver excellent photos. Tiny, tiny bit of contrast and detail loss from the TC, but really, in the grand scheme it's inconsequential.
