    I dont think so, the pricing is high on release but it always is. It will drop down towards XMAS and be a bit more reasonable.

    Canon still have a stranglehold over market share, and they count on people being invested in their glass.

    The tides are turning but there is room for everyone.

    Will wait for the proper reviews before working out if I want to grab two bodies or switch over to Nikon.

    It also has the 6D MKII which I think we will see in the next 12 months.

    Also, since you made the thread I hope you are willing to update the OP with specs/photos and reviews :thumbup:

    I recall when the 5D3 was released, the initial response was "Ho hum, incremental advance", based on the announced specs.

    Then, when people started getting their hands on the actual cameras, most were impressed by how much it actually improved on the 5D2.

    Hopefully, this one will be similar.

    https://www.teds.com.au/canon-eos-5d-mark-iv $5,199.95 :eek:

    Kind of underwhelming (expected from canon these days). 30mp is a decent bump and the new AF system is a welcome upgrade. Disappointing they still haven't caught up to Nikon/Sony in terms of dynamic range. Looks like they've concentrated more on video improvements.

    Being someone who doesn't care about video/wifi/gps/fps the 5DS looks a little more enticing. Interesting to see what they'll do about the 6D successor, if they make one.

    Its $3500USD on B&H though, so I think you will see prices be revised once more information, roll out dates and pricing comes to light.

    I dont get why people still look at the 5DS/r, it was such a poor release? It had great MP.. that is about it (and the price is bananas). Surely an A7r2 would be a better investment?

    There are some good things in the 5D4 package that will keep people on board, I am waiting to see the AF improvements most of all. Things like wifi + GPS are great, but actually two fast slots is such an improvement for my line of work. And GPS time sync is awesome so I dont have to worry about second shooters messing that bit up.

    I think later in the year, with some good sales (like the Teds 20% EBAY) we could hopefully see it around the $4k mark, or just under. that would be nice.

    I do think a 6D MKII is on the way, to fit in that gap between 7D and 5D4, to perhaps rival the D750(and next iteration of that) and then the D810 replacement will be matched with the 5D4. Tho based on how long it took to see a 5d4, who knows anymore!

    I'll kick the tyres once prices come down to reasonable levels. Because I do miss the 5D design and ergonomics.

    Will be interesting to compare this to the A7III down the track. Not that they're direct competitors. More in terms of value proposition.

    Highly unlikely, with the way the AUD is at the moment (and predicted to head even further south of the USD in the next 12 months)

    Canon $AUD RRP is supposedly $5699 (taken from another forum, so dont quote me on it lol) http://store.canon.com.au/eos-5d-mark-iv.html

    $3500USD + GST comes to ~$5,045.65 AUD anyway :(

    If the sensor is anything like the new 1D it will have great DR. That's what I've been waiting for. If the price is crazy ill probably upgrade my mk2 to mk3 and just use magic lantern. and buy a drone :D

    Its already dropped $300+ on some local websites and under $5k, which just shows a lot of it was just release hype and pricing being unsure. So once we see a couple of months, the market settle, some of the bigger sales later this year or a cash back promotion, it will settle into a better price point IMO.

    Not to mention if you are registered for GST, you get that back so it sits at more than 5D3 on release, but not heaps more.

    Haha perhaps, if anything the 5D4 price holds up the 5d3 one, you want your one back? Just put a few more frames on it since I bought it off you :lol:

    I'm more excited by the 5DIV release than the 5DIII. For me (generally landscape shooter) there wasn't much in the 5DIII to entice an upgrade from the Mark II.

    I think with the 5DIV the larger megapixel, larger ISO range, enhanced focus and I assume better dynamic range / less noise it is attractive. However, at the current price point I won't be upgrading any time soon. I think the price will settle likely around the $4200 mark - but we'll see.
