Two more things, Canon…
Although I may consider myself primarily a Nikon shooter, I have a good Canon setup, and I use it for both professional and leisure work. I'm not going to describe here which features of which system I like most, nor this is a Nikon vs. Canon article. Also, in the past 3-4 years, I have been in search of a good travel system – smaller, but without losing the image quality and flexibility of the DSLR. I started with Sony, then sold all my Sony gear and moved to Fujifilm.
The problem is that once we start to add professional zooms to these “small” cameras, the system becomes no longer small. So I just abandoned the idea (for now) to have a third system for travel. In that regards, the new Fujifilm X100F (and I had the X100S) is quite good by itself to be a good travel camera – with enough MPx, fast auto focus and excellent image quality. But let’s go back to Canon...
I had a good price offer for my 5D Mark III, and I sold it just before the Mark IV announcement. I wasn’t afraid to stay without the camera for a while, because I had my Nikon gear to cover for my work. With big excitement I was waiting for the upcoming Mark IV. And it came but the big excitement disappeared, and I felt a bit disappointed from Canon's decisions for this camera.
I’ll share with you my thoughts from 3 different perspectives – as a wedding photographer, as a landscape photographer, and as a videographer – what are my main reasons to not be excited about 5D Mark IV. And I said MY REASONS. So, please, DON'T JUDGE ME too much. You can share your thoughts and your experience with 5D Mark IV in the comments section below.
