The announcement of the latest generation of the EOS 5D family is big news to all fans of Canon full-frame DSLRs. In what has been a busy year for Canon, the EOS 5D Mark IV strengthens an already impressive product line- up with the latest arrival boasting a 30.4-megapixel resolution, native ISO up to 32,000, 4K video and an advanced, high performing AF system featuring 61 points.

The EOS 5D Mark IV is also Canon’s first camera to feature Dual Pixel Raw technology. Each of the camera’s pixels comprises two photo diodes that can be used individually or together. Used individually resulting Raws are twice as large, but you get more focusing flexibility when files are processed in Canon’s DPP software. Body price is £3599 and sales will start from September.

The EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM is priced at £1129, while the EF 16-35mm f/4L IS III USM at £2349. The 16-35mm will be available in October and the 24- 105mm later this autumn.
