I am not excited about the fact that they increased the resolution so much.
I can understand why some would feel that way. But, I really wanted the increased pixels provided there was no serious reduction in ISO or fps performance. I saw how much the 50D improved over the 40D (I have both) in image detail and post crop-ability (and no loss in ISO performance). I knew that the 1D Mark III had the same number of pixels as the 40D, but spread out over a larger sensor. So, I knew there was potential for the next 1D to excel as much. But, it appears the 1D Mark IV has exceeded my expectations. Instead of increasing rez 50%, they increased it 60%, and at the same time (apparently) improved ISO performance a couple of stops, and maintained 10 fps with (apparently) considerable improvements to AF and tracking. So, I'm elated that the increased pixels happened with no compromise in other areas. I would like to see, however, a comparison of the IQ between the 1D3 and 1D4 when both shots fill the frame (no cropping).
