An expensive new Canon 5D MK IV

August 25, 2016

Canon has just launch it's new 5D serie camera, The 5D MK IV.

With 30.4 mpix, 4K video, dual pixels sensor, 4K video, wifi and GPS, this new camera is a slight improvement in terms of technology compared to the previous MK III version.

I am really uncertain about investing in this camera. In fact, the price of the MK IV is at par with the 5DS at 50 mpix. At $4,500 CAD, it is more expensive  than the Sony A7R II with it's super backlit sensor of 42 mpix by about $700.  And more expensive by about $1K compared to the previous version 5D III.

For now, I will keep reading about it and wait until a discounted price comes up.

Too bad...
