DPReview published their full in-depth review for Canon EOS 5D Mark IV full frame DSLR camera. And the new Canon EOS 5D Mark IV (Amazon, B&H, Adorama) DSLR camera achieves an impressive 87% overall score and Gold Award from the experts at DPReview.

From DPReview Conclusion:

With the EOS 5D Mark IV, Canon has further refined its semi-professional full frame all-rounder. With a solid build and improved weather sealing, faster burst speed, increased resolution, increased dynamic range, updated autofocus system and Dual Pixel live view functionality, the Mark IV will be as much camera as many people need, even if it doesn’t revolutionize the 5D-line the way its predecessors have.

Pros:

  • 30.4MP CMOS full-frame sensor with Dual Pixel autofocus
  • Improved base ISO dynamic range compared to previous Canon DSLRs
  • Excellent high ISO quality
  • 7 fps continuous shooting (up to 4.3 fps in Live View with continuous AF)
  • 61-point AF system with wider coverage than previous model
  • All AF points work down to F8 with proper lens/teleconverter combos
  • Center five AF points offer high precision with F2.8 and faster lenses
  • Highly customizable AF use cases
  • 150,000-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor
  • Responsive touchscreen with excellent interface and usability
  • Configurable Q menu
  • Dual Pixel Raw allows for some image micro-adjustment in post
  • 4K/30p video + HDR 1080p
  • Outstanding AF performance in video
  • Flicker detection
  • USB 3.0

Cons:

  • iTR subject tracking lacks precision and reliability compared to some peers
  • Optimization of AF settings takes practice and experience
  • iTR optimized for erratic subjects can lead to intermittent mis-focus
  • Continued use of CF and SD cards could limit action shooters
  • 4K video limited to Motion JPEG
  • 4K/30p video requires CF card
  • No Log gamma, focus peaking, or zebras for video
  • Fixed screen limits usefulness when working at odd angles (particularly since Dual Pixel AF is so effective)
  • HDMI-out limited to 1080 video
  • Custom Controls would benefit from more consistent options across the available buttons
