Canon 1D Mark IV image quality

I’m behind on my review of the Canon 1D Mark IV, mainly because of torrential rains the past week. The creek below was above the boulders in the foreground earlier this week. I measured nearly 11" of rain over the course of 4 days at my home.

Today I shot a confirmation batch of photos to check my image quality findings from earlier this week. I’m now certain that not only does the Canon 1D Mark IV offer the highest image quality of any Canon DSLR yet made, but that sharpness is excellent with top grade optics: it sure looks as if a weak anti-aliasing filter is in use, which is very good news.

I’ll go so far to say that even if I were shooting landscape, I’d want this camera over the 5D Mark II. The image quality improvements more than make up for the 5MP difference. If Canon can scale this sensor to a 27MP full-frame camera with the same quality, Canon landscape shooters will be very happy indeed.

That is not to say that everything is to my satisfaction with the 1D Mark IV, but that will have to wait for my review in DAP. But this is Canon’s best camera yet.

The Zeiss 21/2.8 Distagon performs admirably on the 1D Mark IV, providing a field of view equivalent to a 27mm lens, because of the 1.3X crop sensor (27.9 X 18.6mm). I daresay that Canon 16-35mm users are going to want the ZE 21/2.8 Distagon, because the sensor needs rigorous optical performance, with its 5.7 micron pixels. And focus and depth of field must be nailed.

The Canon 1D Mark IV is on loan courtesy of B&H Photo— get it for about $4999 .
