      Answer

      I upgraded from a 5D Mark II and absolutely love the 5D Mark IV. A couple of weeks after my purchase there were some promotions on free items like a camera bag, extra battery, memory card, cleaning kit, went back to best buy and asked them for the free items and they gave me all these items free no questions asked. A week after this, the price of the camera went down by $200 and again went back to Best Buy asking them for a price match. They gave me the $200 and price matched it. Love Best Buy! As regarding the camera, the autofocus is pretty fast and when compared to my previous 5D mark II it is way better. The camera can focus on lenses stopped down to f/8. I use it with my 100-400L II combined with a 1.4X TC III and no problems at all in autofocus and pretty fast. Love it for my bird photography. I love the 2 slots for the memory card, one SD and the other CF. One can can be set to capture JPEG while the other set for RAW capture. Also the 7FPS is pretty fast for action. I use it for capturing birds and wildlife and love it. If you have not invested a whole lot on Nikon lenses and just have a 300S with a basic lens, I think it should be worth the upgrade.

      You can mount any lens that is an EF mount. Lens with an EF-S or EF-M mount will not work with the full frame DSLR's.

        Answer

        Depends on what lens you current have, also your style of photography. I was a Sony person but switched to canon and never looked back but I have never used a mirror less camera so I could not tell you which is better. Best to do more research and look at the pros & Cons for both cameras

      Right now I own a rebel t2i. I'm trying to decide on the 7d or the 5d. How does the 5d hold up to movement like running children? the 7d shows it was made for sports, not the 5d. But i like the 5d better bc i do more lifestyle photography. Thanks.   (3 Answers)

        Answer

        Coming from a T2i, either camera will be an amazing difference for you. The 5DIV shoots at 7fps while the 7DII shoots at 10fps, so on raw frames per second the 7DII wins.The AF system on the 5DIV is much newer and sophisticated, so on that point the 5DIV is the winner. 5DIV can also autofocus at f/8 with most focus points active, whereas I believe the 7DII can only focus using center focusing point - this might be a factor if you're shooting long distance sports with a teleconverter. The 5DIV has much better image quality, better sensor, much better video capabilities, and is obviously a newer camera, so for a good balance this is the best camera of those two you're looking at. However, if you are more interested in sports than anything else, you should look at buying a used Canon 1DX (Mark I) body. They are selling for around $3,000 and even less, so a little cheaper than buying the 5DIV and you get 12fps, pro rugged body, and stellar AF. So while you're not asking for it, here's my recommendation: Mostly sports - 1Dx Balance of sports/portraits/landscape - 5DIV Mostly portraits/landscape - 5DsR Budget mostly sports - 7DII Budget mostly portraits/landscapes - 6D Good luck!

          Yes. All new Canon dSLRs come with wall charger, one battery, camera strap, computer cables, manuals, and software CD. I've owned multiple Canon dSLRs and that's been the case for all of them. I own this model now, the 5D Mark IV also purchased from Best Buy and it came with all that I listed.
