Daniel, Bristol Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Really great low light ability, no image drop when a field monitor is plugged in to the hdmi slot
Bad points:
full frame should have been involved due to the cost and maybe an extra frame rate higher then 50fps like 120fps for slow mo and a raw codec

roger, colchester Professional photographer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Build quality ( like a tank) Image quality. Features in general. Autofocus speed. Comprehensive menus. Not forgetting the general feel of the camera
Bad points:
The price - but if you want REAL quality you must pay for it. Comprehensive set up menu is not for the inexperienced - but then it is designed for professionals.

Terry, Spokane, WA Professional photographer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I previously a pair of 1D Mark II's for 7 years. I loved those cameras and got some great images from them over the years. But, the Mark IV is a huge improvement to the II's. The ISO range is wonderful, the battery life is absolutely incredible, and the extra resolution gives me a lot of options when needing to crop a little.
Bad points:
After having owned the Mark II's so long, I got real familiar with the controls. I'm still trying figure out a few of the equivalent controls on the Mark IV.

Graham, Boreham, Chelmsford Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I have ben using the !D Mark III for wildlife photography and have been pleased with the resulting images. The results from friends who have bought the 1D Mark IV were even better, especially where image cropping was required. It is very fast with massive flexibility on focusing points. It is superbly robust and water resistant. It also provides incredibly fast focusing with my range of AF/IS lenses. I also find the ISO range is much better than the MkIII. I get very little noise even at 800 ASA.
Bad points:
The main one is that against a dull background focusing of moving objects becomes difficult but still better than the MkIII. Also the point focus is not as good as the 7D which I also have. However, the 7D has for me some noise above 400ASA.

Moira, Fife Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This camera allows you to keep autofocus when using a 1.4 or 2 x extender depending on the lens used. Autofocus is still possible at f 8. It has many custom functions, but you only need to use the ones, which are helpful and suit your type of photography. It is rather intimidating at first, but the internet has lots of advice and then put everything into practice. It is a solid made camera with a good feel to it. The weight is reasonable and with a long lens is still not uncomfortable. HD video is easy to use and superb.
Bad points:
None that I have found.
