I agree with you. The only reason the reach and pixel density of the 80D doesn't help me much is that I am not cropping. If you need to crop, the 80D will be a big improvement over the 1DIV.

Low-light shooting involves two factors: high-ISO noise, and autofocus.

With respect to AF, the 80D is a clear winner. The 1DIV only focuses down to 0EV, which I used to (until 6D) find acceptable. The 80D can focus down to -3EV, which it does uncannily well. FYI: when I am shooting in low-light, I am using fast primes. That makes a difference. All Canon cameras focus better at f/2.8 and faster.

I don't think the high-ISO noise differences between the 80D and 1DIV are worth mentioning. I will readily use either at ISO 6400. I find the 80D usable at 12,800, but it requires spot-on WB and ETTR (and raw shooting) for best results. As mentioned above, that is a compliment to both cameras. An aps-c sensor equaling an aps-h sensor is good news. A 7 year old camera rivaling a new camera is equally good news.

All in all, for the way I use my AI-Servo camera, the 80D is as good as the 1DIV. Or the 1DIV is as good as the 80D. For One-Shot, I am using my 6D.

And last but not least, I am healing well. Thank you. My last follow-up with the surgeon was Wednesday. He cleared me to go back to work. I have accepted a new job in PACU [recovery room] that starts 2/6/17. I started resistance/strength training yesterday. I can now handle a 6D/24-105, as long as I am careful. I assume I'll be able to shoot my 1DIV/100-400 again by late Spring. Thanks, again.

Well that's good news (about the 80D and you).

Yes. I am happy with my 80D, and my recovery. I thought this (surgery, not camera) was going to be a lot worse.

Quite impressive! Noticed you had to go to f/14 to get shutter speed for propeller blur. Have you ever used ISO 50 on the 1DIV?

Out of curiosity, does the 80D AF customization allow you to handle situations like this reliably? I've found that the 1D4 is better at this than the 1D3, by quite a bit. The AR in the green jersey flows through my field of view, and focus stays locked on the subject without missing a beat -- this was 6/10 of a second of play:

Yes. I haven't had a chance to compare actual performance, but the 80D does have the C. Fn.'s to allow for ignoring obstacles, and/or quickly switching to them. The 80D has all the customization feature (wrt AF) that the 7D2 has.

Thanks Jake.
I wish it were a wee bit sharper. But I was hand holding an 8 lb lens. A man has his limits. ;-)a

I have not used ISO 50 extensively, just a few test photos. It seemed to have a tendency to blow highlights. Not real bad, but enough for me to go back
to ISO 100. When shooting at slow shutter speeds (to capture prop blur) I usually use a .6 ND drop in filter with the lens. But at this air show I forgot to
bring the filter with me.

Do any of the experts here know if I can assign the AE-lock (*) button to switching between Single Shot and AI Servo? I would like it as a toggle rather than needing to hold the button. I've done it on my 5D4 and it's very handy!

I'm pretty sure the only way to toggle Single-shot/AI-servo on the 1DIV is with one of the buttons on Canon's super-teles. I'll check.
