I’m impressed with the Canon 1D Mark IV. Though targeted at sports and action shooters, I see it as applicable to a wide range of other purposes, due to its high image quality, the best yet to come from Canon. I could easily see a landscape or wedding shooter using the 1D Mark IV simply because its image quality is first rate, and the 1.3X crop has advantages in depth of field and the “sweet spot” of popular Canon zooms, like the 24-105 and 16-35.
The Canon 1D Mark IV is available for about $4999 . Thanks to B&H Photo for making this timely review possible by providing the 1D Mark IV for evaluation.
