/ 5D Mk IV?
They are already up to MkIII on the 5D. Is it worth getting one, or should I wait half a year to see what/if a new model they bring out?
The 5d3 although without doubt a superb bit of kit was IMHO incorrectly priced, it's primary improvement over the 5d2 was the autofocus points and when all the singing and dancing was done nothing significantly more than that...and for what nearly £3000...not for me I got the d2 fully aware the d3 was on the way
For the price you can pick one up for now the 5d2 takes some beating. I think there is a growing number of toggers refusing to get caught up in the marketing hype from the major manufacturers, the trick is to spot the " significant advances" these come along a lot less frequently the the magazine adverts/ marketing men would have us believe.
As the grand master once said...the most important part of any camera is the 12 inches behind it.
Wait until next year, the 6D is being released, it is aimed halfway between the 7d and 5d. Their cheapest full frame camera so far
I may bite eh bullet and take a punt.
Having gone from a 7D and, when needed, hired 1Ds, the 5D3 is a superb camera. The first climbing shots with it are pending in my gallery but after several weddings and some studio work, it's not going to be the camera which holds me back now.
