Don't forget Nikon!

B&H just....well, they just ROCK. They also have a very knowledgeable staff for their various departments.

Regarding the Canon 5DIV: While I haven't shot with one, I've had a chance to edit and play with some 5DIV files from the Bay Area professional real-estate photographer who has very kindly been allowing me to shadow him, Peter Lyons. Needless to say, I was very, very impressed with the image quality and color of the 5DIV's files. Having shot with Canon for a very long time, I know that system well, and the Canon 5DIV is...impressive. Canon's legendary "color science" is all there, too, and the 5DIV also has remarkably accurate auto-white balance.

Those that have thinking of upgrading their Canon DSLRs to the 5DIV, at these prices, I would go for it. You will not be disappointed.

And remember to use Mike's B&H affiliate links! ;-)

I would second Geoff's comment about Canon's 16-35 f/2.8 III.
I bought it and the new 24-70 -they are about as good as lenses get.
Not only are they dead sharp, they both focus nearly instantly. But more than that, they create images that have a 'rightness' and depth. about them . They are both better than most primes.
I also own the 17mm T/S which I thought was in a league of it's own,--it now has company.

I paid nearly a grand more for my Sony A7RII when I bought it, tells a lot about the camera market today. I still use it as my main camera, several times a week and it was the mirrorless that made me completely give up on DSLRs. Yes, it has some quirks, but so do all cameras and I get results consistently, so I'm not looking for a new camera right now (although the raw speed of the A9 is tempting...) And 42 megapixels might be too much, but it still looks stunning even if I need to crop.

"Cameras for nothin' and grips for free!"

Roger Cicala: "But is it a practical lens for you? Well, if you’re a working pro or a very serious (and well-healed) amateur ..."
Loved that typo; only a well-healed photographer would invite such punishment to his already battered wallet!
