From everything I have read online and talked to people it really has come down to how much you shoot, if your upcoming pro the 7D2 but at this point if you really want to do this and make some cash there is no reason to not put out a bit more cash and grab a 1D Mark IV even if it is 5 years old.

To be honest I'd have that the other way about. I don't know any pro's that will be picking up a 7D2 for their work. Most of not all that I encounter are using 1D bodies. People even sniff at me for having a 5D3. My agency wondered when I'll be getting a 1DX, and I told them when they start selling my pics.

Thats what I mean, I didnt say it right. I mean like if your shooting high school or local paper then I see the 7D Mark II doing great but if you want to really shoot and get out there no reason not to upgrade to 1D. And after seeing a ton of stuff these last few days I have to say the 1D Mark IV for being 5 years old is still a hell of a camera for pros to being using. I think it will be a good body for a few more years for most people. Cant wait to get my hands on one.

When I had my 1D3 I was told by TeamSpeed that before long I'd be longing for a 1DIV. I could effectively swap my 5D3 for one now, but haven't. No idea why.

Plus theres the files and how they can be pushed and pulled in processing. Workability of the files is important too, and the 1D series files are terrific. Never used a 5D series at all, so I'm not sure, but I would imagine those files are very god for workability as well.

I still want to add the 1D4 back to the stables... The prices have started to drop finally!

Yea I saw that one too, looks to be a bargain, compared to a lot of others, not only that, but its not beat either.

That's the lowest price for a 9 1DIV I've ever seen. The only one I can get access to here for that, has issues with the sensor.

I can almost feel your excitement through the screen lol

I predicted that the 1d4 would drop to that level by January when the 7d2 was announced, but some didn't see it happening. It will happen, there will be more. :)

I have the older non IS 70-200, but by speed I mean FPS 6 is good but 10 is going places. All I want is a an AF that is as good as the 5D3, which I know the 7D2 is really good but no clue on the 1D Mark IV

I now rate the 5D3 and 1D4 AF as about equal. Sometimes the 5D3 is better (certainly on paper it is) abut sometimes side by side the 1D4 seems to win out. I've flip flopped on which is overall better a few times now and finally threw in the towel and call it a tie, even though they are different.

It is possible, in fact reasonable to believe that the 7D2 beats them both

I felt like the 5D3 was a better AF and would hold focus better than the 1D4 (both jumped around in and out, but the 5D3 held it better), but you give up the FPS and the better body build. My Canon rep confirmed that the 5D3 had a better AF than the 1D4.
