dpreview drops Canon 1D Mark IV review in the middle of PMA 2010

If you want to find out how the Canon 1D Mark IV did in the dpreview review, put on the kettle, and grab a Costco-size bag of cookies ;-) The 33-page dpreview review is out, written by the lead singer of the Psychedelic Furs!

The pixel-peepiential parts of the review include comparisons to bitter rival Nikon D3s (see dpreview review of that camera), along with predecessor 1D Mark Drama (III), and dual-core 7D. And the always usual spec-comparison refresher.

As usual, we won't spoil the findings here, but I'm sure a number of you (confess it!) like to jump to the conclusions page first :) This is the second dpreview review using the new rating system! Needless to say, the D3s is mentioned prominently in the conclusions!

For more reviews and tests, be sure to check the 1D Mk IV review cluster, which includes Galbraith's AF testing, DXoMark data, and a six-pack of field-tests among others.

In terms of availability, the camera remains at pre-order status, with occasional drips of quickly-scooped-up stock. We have just refreshed the stock status page with that.
