    I'm no expert, but I really like this camera. I've got to use it a couple times. Once shooting pictures down on the field at a football game, while the other was while out hiking for about 5 miles. In both situations, I found this camera to take fantastic pictures. The only drawback comes from the guy holding the camera. We all know it's expensive, but this one should last me for a long time.

    If you are an advance amateur and ready to take your skills to another level, this is the camera that will deliver for you. However, even though this camera is evolutionary technology it is not without it's complexities. Be prepared to commit to knowing the camera, it will definitely be worth the time.

    I've always been a Canon shooter and used to have a Canon Rebel which I loved. After saving up to make the jump to a pro full frame DSLR I finally got this camera and absolutely love it! It performs great for night shots too. Attached a couple of my favorite pix I've taken with it so far.

    This is not a technical review, because I am just peeling back the layers of what this camera can do. I love the crispness of my images & the versatility of my new lens (f4 24-105mm). There are so many great features on this camera. The only two things that bug me are the LCD screen doesn't flip out. I loved that & used it so much on my Rebel. And the other thing, the weight of this monster with my zoom lens. I can live with both, though. Truthfully, I find the 5DMIV to be a dreamy machine. I haven't yet plunged into the video capabilities, but I can't wait! Great product so far!

    The best camera I could find! Every photo I have ever seen taken with the Canon Eos 5D is amazingly beautiful. After wanting it for a long time, I finally decided to buy it and I'm glad that I did! I am also happy that it came with an instruction book.

    I had planned on buying a full-frame digital SLR one day. That day came sooner than I expected, but I couldn't be happier. This camera has everything I want: large, sharp images, touch-screen LCD back, wifi to transfer my images to my iPad or PC, or even control the camera from my iPad, and so much more. I have since read that this is the camera of choice for many professionals, which is the best recommendation. Yes, the 5D Mark IV is pricey, but if you can swing it, it gives you a lot for the money!

    This is the best purchase I have made!!! I love love my new Canon 5D Mark IV. I have no regrets whatsoever. After using my first Canon T3i for many years, this 5D Mark IV was my dream camera. It has great features. AF is good and provides great deal of flexibility in adjusting sensitivity and focus mode to scenario you are in. Designed to be a good all around camera. I would definitely recommend this for anyone who wants to move from a crop sensor to a full frame.

    Just (finally) got this one to replace the Mark III stolen off an airplane last year (sob). Setup and operations have minimal changes (except for surprise of touch screen function), so not much learning curve... Huge improvements in image quality, onscreen with Photoshop, over Mark III. I almost always use natural light in Manual mode, but don't recall this ease of use with ISO set at Auto - is hard to mess up, even with fast moving children...

    This camera works very well with excellent capabilities and is adaptable to be used with older lenses as well as new. Great camera! Only drawback I notice is it doesn't have the flipable LCD viewer as my older Canon 70D has however all other aspects work much the same but with better quality.

    This camera was a major upgrade from the 7D crop sensor I had shot with for years. The only con I can think of is the battery life, especially when tethered via built in wifi to the phone app to shoot remotely.

    Very high end camera and performs so. Similar to other Canon cameras, it is very user friendly and intuitive. Manual modes offer extensive range on ISO and shutter speed. Lens performs beautifully but is heavy. I would recommend to user upgrading for high quality professional photos.
