Shortly after the 7D2 release the used 1D4 prices dropped a bit, then they started rising again. Floating around the £1300-£2000 mark. Still pretty high for it. The 7D2 is about £1599 new but I still can't decide.

My 1DIV comes today. Hopefully it'll be worth all the hunting around for one.

So if you had no choice but to sell the 1DIV or the 7D2 which one would you not be without?

Still not sure which camera I would keep. Here's why.
I had a lot of out of focus shots with the 7Dmk2. That may have happened because I didn't have the best settings dialed in. ( got the camera and half time and returned it at games end )
The other possible reason for the missed focus is that I was using Version 1 of the Canon 400 f2.8. I saw a chart which I haven't been able to find again that said the all of the camera's latest
and greatest auto focus don't work with the lens. ( which is almost 20 years old ).

If the camera auto focused better, I might be inclined to go with the 7Dmk2. Something else I have noticed, is that at least my copy of the 1Dmk4 seems to have lower ISO values when
compared to the 5Dmk3 and 7dmk2.

I am planning on upgrading to the Version 1 of the IS 400 f2.8. It will be interesting to see if that lens works better with the new 7D.

Having shot with both 1DkIV and 7D2 I would also say better auto focus in 7D2.

Owned a 7D2 for 10 days before returning it for a full refund, and then bought a used 1DIV for the same price, with 17k on the shutter. The AF was superior, and it went well with my 5D3 - but apart from that, it didn't cut the mustard for me.

Have shot heaps of times with my IV (paid sports, one wedding & business portraits) and have not even given my decision a 2nd thought. Just wanted to chime in on my experience.
