As a wedding photographer there is nothing more important to me then having a camera that can Lock on an image in Crap No Light conditions and deliver a file that I can use. 1st shot is 3200 ISO. Zero Noise

2nd shot was 12800 ISO and Minimal noise. Horrible light here but the camera got it done

Both of these are straight off camera captures. Nothing done except a base import in LR with a base preset

Both cameras are equally as good. Image quality is almost impossible to tell apart.

I am a Sports photographer and at times I shoot "Friday Night Lights" High School games. The ability of the 1DXII to lock auto focus in low light is the biggest reason I have been shooting with it for the last couple of years.

No, they are not equal. There's more to a camera than image quality.

Amazing shots. Did you use any type of flash with either shot, or are they both ambient light only?

I agree with you. I skipped the 1DX and my two cameras are 1D4 AND 1DXii because not having the red squares in the viewfinder really did not work well for me in a lot of lighting situations. I like my active point to show red as it is easy to see in any situation.

I agree. But that for sure doesn't make them equally good (to use), which was the reason for my post.

I was able to test this 5D4 a bit more at last weekends wedding. Its first real wedding outing.

Put the camera in AV mode and let it do its thing end of night just to see what it would do.

Here are some 16000 ISO shots straight off the camera. They are very clean. I was impressed. 1Dx2 is a little cleaner but not much. However the 1Dx2 AF is much better especially in the dark with AF and especially servo use. 5D4 and 1Dx2 I dont need focus assist with speed light use. They both hit easily. 5D3 I do need focus assist

I have zero reservations setting ISO parameters to 25000 on either camera. Both are killer clean

these are 5D4 files at 16000- straight off camera captures

I became a new owner of this amazing kit yesterday, can't wait to try it out at my sons' rugby matches today. Have a feeling I'm gonna have a lot more files to go through than usual.
