Nice flower shot WG.
Curious, did you have the 5DIII before the 5DIV?
If so, is there noticeable improvement and worth the upgrade?

Yes, I did have a 5DIII before, in fact, I still have one that I have had converted to shoot Infrared imagery. I sold my old one to a friend of mine who wanted it for a backup camera and he is quite happy with it, at least he hasn't complained to me about it .

As far as a noticeable improvement - this is a bit difficult to answer - I think it depends on what you are going to shoot. The 5DIII has a 22.3 MP sensor and the 5DIV has a 30.4 MP sensor. Do 8.1 MP make a significant difference - maybe, maybe not. I haven't really set out to compare the two cameras and the "quality" of the images they produce, but I have noticed the Mark IV gives me better quality images if I have to seriously crop one, or I am taking macro shots of flowers, etc.

The technology - processors, sensors, etc., are quite different and newer of course, with the MK IV having a new dual-pixel feature that I haven't really figured out yet as you need to use Canon's own processing software to take advantage of it. As well, the Mk IV has a touch screen panel which I use, or not, depending on whether I remember to use it.

I suspect that if you are making very large prints, say 16x20 or larger you will notice a difference, particularly if the subject contains a lot of fine detail. On the other hand, if you are only going to make 4x6 prints for family and friends, or posting on the web, then you probably won't notice a difference unless there is a lot of really fine detail, or the prints are from very heavily cropped images.

The real major difference, from what I have read, is in the video capabilities of the two cameras. This is not important for me as I do not take videos, a couple of time-lapse maybe, but no real videos.

Here are some relevant websites that might help:

5DIII - Canon EOS 5D Mark III | Professional DSLR Camera

5DIV - Canon EOS 5D Mark IV | Professional DSLR Camera

and a comparison - https://www.the-digital-picture.com/...spx?News=18839

Why did I make the upgrade - simply, it was time for a change and I wanted the technology and the 7 fps. and unless the next round - the Mark V - has any super deluxe features for me to use, I probably won't be going there - I didn't upgrade from my original 5D to the Mark II for that reason and with all the "problems" that it has had, I am glad I didn't.

One thing I have noticed is that Canon is bringing out new lenses as it brings out cameras with more megapixels. e.g., the 24-105II replaces the original version of the lens. Whether that (Mark II lenses) is because of the "increased MP cameras" or not, one can only speculate.

Mike, I hope this helps a bit, although I realize that this is a personal thing and folks go with what they feel is good for them at the time. Let me know what you decide.

Mike, one thing I forgot to mention is that the Mark IV has a built in intervalometer, I believe it is Canon's first camera with one. This is useful if you are going to shoot time lapse imagery.
