You would have known about these deficiencies before buying the 5D4, so I am confused why these shortcomings are so important now?
If you were directing that at me, I can answer. I bought the camera as a stills camera. But I also have a family and a toddler, so I want to do videos. The 4K codec and ridiculous crop factor suck. So I had to find something else. I'm with Fuji for videos. Might be going to Sony next after a mishap with Fuji left a bad taste in my mouth. In any case, the hoax rumoured specs would have made the 5DIV the one camera that could do it all. And it's all software that Canon CAN put in the camera. They're just choosing not to. So that's why it's disappointing.
Had I gone with Sony's A7RII, or Fuji's X-T2, or any of the other competitors, I would have significantly superior video features in what are still primarily stills cameras. Canon chooses to screw over their consumer in that regard, simply because they can. As a result, some of us who have been Canon diehard fans have to experiment with other systems. Experimentation breeds doubt and sometimes, they lose customers as a result.
