  1. Wow some serious glass there, enjoy!
  2. Just tried to PM you and it says "Lefty cannot receive messages" I'll PM you via Flickr.
  3. I never found the DR a problem, getting detail into highlights and shadows from raw files, under normal circumstances, wasn't difficult. Obviously, harsh lit landscapes and Church interiors were a bit more problematic. Being 'old school', ISO800 is high for me, but for school use I often used it at 1600 and then made A0 prints. You always need to try a new camera before making any decisions. After everyone on here going on about Fuji, they seemed the right camera for me to use for travel, so I borrowed one from a camera club member and couldn't get on with it at all and I wasn't impressed with its output - so saved me a costly mistake. If you were local enough, you could borrow the 5D2 and a lens and try it to see if one would suit your needs.

  5. I've only had it a couple of days and taken about 20 photos with it, six of them being of my 5D2 as it's going up for sale. The 5D4 file size is enormous, so processing is a bit slower. It's supposed to have superior focussing to the 5D2, but I never found that aspect of the camera wanting. Image quality looks great, but it is probably limited by my 24-105L lens. Low light image quality is better, but yet to be verified by me. As I use it more and more I'm sure to find more differences to the 5D2.
  6. Never even considered it as the 1D4 is my goto wildlife/sports camera due to its 1.3x sensor factor. I suppose the 30mp of the 5D4 vs 16mp of the 1D4 would have made up for that. The 10 fps of the 1D4 exceeds that of the 5D4 so may have come in handy. Next time out I'll use 5D4 and see how it compares.
  7. Managed to get a lot closer today, hence a better quality image. Poor lighting so still a low shutter speed and high ISO. Kingfisher and fish by Tillman Kleinhans ARPS EFIAP/b DPAGB BPE2*, on Flickr Canon 1D4 + 400L f5.6 + 1.4TC, 1/100s @ f8, ISO1250 raw.
  8. Trying out my new camera. Red, green and black by Tillman Kleinhans ARPS EFIAP/b DPAGB BPE2*, on Flickr Canon 5D4 + 70-200L f2.8 IS, 1/60s @ f5, ISO800 raw.
  9. Treated myself as it's my birthday next week! 5D4 by Tillman Kleinhans ARPS EFIAP/b DPAGB BPE2*, on Flickr So the 5D2 will be going in a week or so.
  10. Disc 2, mainly to listen to Positively 4th Street.
  11. That's all that counts.
