Canon 5dsr or 5d Mark IV?? Assist requested, tin can’t decide

How-do-you-do all,

I’1000 currently owning an 1dx (not marking ii) which I however enjoy very much. I likewise had a Sony A7R and bought a metabones adapter recently simply in the end establish information technology’s non for me. I rather stay with an all Canon system. Traded in my A7R and used the money to purchase the  Canon 11-24 f4 lens.

I’thou enjoying landscape shooting and want to buy a camera for that. The 1DX I will use for well-nigh of the other shots.

As probably more people, I’chiliad debating betwixt the 5ds r or 5d marker 4.

Of grade the 5ds r has more megapixels which will be useful for my landscape shots (and portraits).

For pretty much the rest the 5d mark four will be the better camera and newer camera I suppose. I’d like to impress out some large prints from my shots.

I however believe the dynamic range is better for the 5d marking four and also wonder if the affect screen would be useful as well?

Are there people that accept used both cameras side past side particularly for landscapes and portraits? I’grand very curious to know which of the 2 cameras they cull and why?

Many thanks

I have both the 5D4 and 5DSR.  I beloved them both in different ways.  You lot are right that the 5D4 impact screen, dual pixel Liveview AF, and DR are fantastic features (along with 4K video).

For portraits DR usually isn’t as critical but if yous are doing mostly outdoor shots of people and don’t have much control over the lighting, DR can actually make a pretty huge difference.  It’s not like you lot can take bracketed exposures of people.  Information technology’s nonetheless like shooting fish in a barrel to exceed the DR of even the highest DR cameras (similar the 5D4 or the Nikon D750) and so it can exist even worse with a camera that is 2 stops lower in DR.  If the calorie-free is somewhat controllable (shades, reflectors, flash guns, indoor) I will e’er choose the 5DSR for people.

For landscapes I unremarkably choose the 5DSR only I bracket for high DR shots because at that place is not enough DR in any camera to comprehend many existent-world outdoor situations. In these cases I observe the 50MP very valuable and I have a few metal prints that are up to 6 feet wide. If y’all don’t want to bracket, the 5D4 DR is much more valuable than the extra resolution of the 5DSR.

By the way, I honey the 11-24 and find that resolution tin can make a huge deviation when yous shoot extreme broad angle shots. Most of that type of shot are more interesting printed very large and resolution helps a lot.  The lens is fabulous as are nigh of the later generation Canon UWA lenses.

When I got the 5DSR about 1.five years ago I concluded up stepping up the glass to match the resolution and detect the Sigma 50/1.4 Fine art, 35/one.4LII, 16-35/ii.8LIII, 135/2L, Zeiss 135/2 Apo, etc. to be first-class complements to the 50MP body.

I considered the 5DSR as an upgrade from 6D1 and decided instead on 5D4.Go on in mind that I’m an apprentice.

Reasons:

1. I seldom utilise a tripod and most said with so many MP’s some of the images can exist somewhat blurry.

2. I mostly shoot landscapes and was pleased with the results of the 6D1.

three. 5D4 has later technology and more features.

I use my 5DIV more than my 5DsR because I think information technology is a amend all around camera.

What yous shoot (mostly) should exist the determining gene. For landscape the 5DsR may amend compliment your 1DX than the 5DIV.

I shoot mostly wild fauna and so AF that responds to action ways more to me.

The ability to ingather is awesome on the 5DsR.
