    Uwe,

    great photo, although I wonder which camera you finally prefer now, as you also posted similar photos under a D3s thread how great the results form the D3s camera are

    I must say I like the D3s colors more, at least on the posted images .....

    Appreciate your clarification.

    Lets say so much: I like the D3s a lot. We shot with both cameras but of course not always the same.

    I'm really enjoying my 1D Mark IV, although I wish I had more time to get out in the field with it.

    It's nice to finally have a high-speed, pro-build camera with enough pixels to allow for serious cropping. I don't have image hosting to post examples at the moment, so this is a shameless link to my blog site:

    I've been using the 1D series at work since the original 1D. Love the speed and responsiveness, and the 1.3x focal length factor is basically a non-issue. Finally got a couple Mark IV bodies last spring, after five years shooting the Mark II. High ISO image quality is great. Love these cameras. This is from a recent basketball game.

    Re: Canon 1D Mark IV Fun

    ralfsworld, that shot shows how quick and accurate the focus is. I could not decide between this and a 5D II and went for the latter based on cost and size, but will prob get a Mk IV in a few months if certain things come good (I have various needs and having one of each makes a certain amount of sense). While playing with the cameras in B&H, I was stunned by the speed of the focus. It humiliated the 5D II and felt much more responsive than all of the Nikons (yes, D3s included) and this surprised me. I knew it would be good, but this fast ?!?!? Wow...

    Wow Ralfsworld, the colors are like super vibrant, sharp focused image! Kudos to 1D focus engine eh.

    For me it is a bit of hit and miss with my 5D mk i and 100-400L to capture similar images.

    This is what the MKIV is doing attached to a 200L IS.
    Love this camera, a great tool!

    Re: Canon 1D Mark IV Fun

    on sportsshooter.com I read that quite a few users have complained about 1D MKIV giving them problems. Worst still don't seem to be able to fix their cameras as they still get errors after the cameras are returned. Anyone here have bad experiences with this camera? I'm thinking of getting one but am worried.

    Mine has worked flawlessly since the day I got it and it was one of the first ones released. It's a wonderful piece of equipment.

    It's not the camera that makes the picture...



    As cameras go, I like this one (MKIV).

    Re: Canon 1D Mark IV Fun

    Which lenses are you using with the Mk IV ?

    I'm particularly interested in the wide end and the alternatives to the 16-35mm zoom, having recently sold the Version I with the intention of buying a VII, but haven't pulled the trigger yet. Thanks.

    It's a model in a bikini so I'll post a link.
