You know that you were waiting for this. After trashing the Canon 5Dmk4 no clean HDMI output for 4K, Rolling shutter issues and lack of many video features, finally there is something nice to say about the camera.
The final score is 91, which is better than any camera in the Canon line up. But, according to DxO, it is not just an overall score thing, the 5dmk4 beats the Canon gang on every single aspect (aside sports on the 1Dx mkII).
Here is the breakdown from DxO on the top Canon bodies:
Told you that this is good new for the 5Dmk4 lovers. Want some more good news? The Canon 5dmk4 also boasts killer dynamic range and low light performance. According to DxOMark:
… For print results, the dynamic range holds up pretty well, offering similar levels at ISO 1600 compared to the 5D Mark III at ISO 100 – 11.46 Ev vs 11.7 Ev.
In fact, Dynamic Range doesn’t drop below a good score of 10 EV until ISO 6400, and although at the expanded 51,200 and 102,400 ISO sensitivities it drops down relatively low, at the highest native ISO of 25,600, it’s still a respectable 7.83 EV…
… Color depth remains above an excellent 20 bits up to ISO 1600, with good color over 17 bits at ISO 6400
But, there is a grain of salt there. The 5Dmk4’s score is 91, that’s a 10-points jump from the 5Dmk3’s 81. But comparing to Nikon’s D810 and Sony’s Ar7II (97 and 98 respectively) Canon still has some envy issues.
The only advantage seems to be Low light over the Nikon.
So, now that you have some good news, are you getting one?
