Canon EOS 1D Mark IV

Review Date: Aug 20, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $4,800.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Beautiful image quality; fast, accurate focus, lots of customization, good ergonomics, low noise way up to high ISO
None, really

I'm impressed with this camera, and that includes build quality, and image quality. Decent mass and low mirror shake has allowed me to get better hand-held shots at lower shutter speeds. This is the camera I take with me now; all the others are left to back-ups and loaners.

Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS USM

Review Date: Feb 18, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $6,200.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Sharp, excellent IQ, fast and accurate focusing (with 5D)

One of the best photo investments I have made. Only "nit" is the weak 52mm Canon polarizing filter. With a Wimberly head, it's a joy to use; with a Bushhawk, it is very manageable and I got my first decent BIF and wildlife shots (with a 5D no less).
Very sturdy construction and quality build - I feel I got my money's worth.
