What is a far price for a 1D IV with under a 100k clicks?

I've been watching e-bay. A number of 1d4's are listed. Prices range from $1500 to $3200 for body. The higher cost ones appear to have the lower shutter counts. Do you have one for sale?

I have seen a number of nice 1d4's posted on FM for about the same price as a new 7DII. $1800-1900.

Sucks that I paid more than that for my 1d4's awhile ago. But progress marches on.

I just picked up an excellent 1d3 with everything as new for $490 cdn shipped to my door. How can you not like what the 7DII has done to 1D prices? Of course, I am a bit of a 1D snob. :)

I have the 7D and been considering a similar switch and I think it depends on your subjects: if most of your work is portrait or sports then I would tend towards the 1DIV.
If your main subject had been birds or wildlife that often needs cropping then the balance swings more to the 7D2 IMO because of the pixel density but it would still be a much closer decision. Some sites I have seen with comparisons of 7D/1DIV for bird photography suggest a marginal preference to the 7D.

My 1DIV came this morning and it dawned on me when I sat it next to my 5D3 how I feel about the two worlds.

7D2 being very similarly built to the 5D3 I think I summed it up in my head, and it's been annoying me for a while.

Imagine the 5D3 and 7D2 are like the Hot hatch cars. The ones you buy out the shop stock ready made and look good with all the extras. I think of the 1D series as the cars that are poweful but stripped down a bit, no radio, no fancy seats, just bare shell but would knock your socks off in a drag race.

That's how I felt when I opened the box and pulled out the 1DIV and felt them both in my hands. It also feels like I could smash the 5D3 easy with the 1D4 in a Hulk slam.

Maybe I have been used to the toys of the 5D3 too much, fancy menu system, case selection AF and all that, but it felt like I went back in time using the 1DIV. Doesn't feel one bit different to the 1D3 I had but the files are nice to work with.

After using this 1DIV for only a couple of hours now, I really don't think I'll ever regret my decision.

Good way to sum it up. To be honest, I havn't been able to convince myself to even try leaving my 1div at home to use my 7d on a shoot. The IV is just so much better. I did notice however, that the AF didn't seem to be 'ready' so to speak out of the box. It took me quite a bit of adjusting settings to my liking to get what I liked. Also had to Microadjust (which I've never had to do before with any other body) but once I did, I started getting the clearest-sharpest shots I've ever taken.

No regrets.

If it were up to you guys, which path would you walk down?

Canon 7d mark ii without any doubt.

Certainly, if one would be cropping down the 1D4 to APS-c sensor size. The 1D4 can only be expected to do better, noise-wise, if you use the whole frame or most of it at the same ISO, and it can't do the same, pixel-resolution-wise in any situation.

Canon 1d Mark IV Vs Canon 7d Mark II
Sensor: older vs new
Crop factor: 1.3 Vs 1.6 (quite small difference)
AF working range (EV): -1.0 to 18 Vs -3 to 18
and so on.

I considered the 1DIV over the 7DII as I love my 1DIII but the price seemed way too high for used so I went with the 7DII, no regrets really, after processing the files the image quality is so similar to my 5DIII shots that I now think the 7DII will get more use for every day things over the 5DIII. I love the 5DIII especially for portraits and want to try and keep the shutter count down. That said there really is something about the 1D series camera I love. The colours out of my 1DIII are different to the other two. I will keep the 1dIII and drag it out every now and again, its really not worth selling it at the prices they go for these days. The 7DII once you get a handle on the settings is a great camera

I find processing the files from my 1DIV are even more pleasant than working on my 5D3 files. You actually feel like the sliders in LR are doing something. It was the same on the 1D3 too. Don't know what it is to be honest, but I'm now thinking of selling my 5D3 for another 1DIV it's that good.

The 1D files have, in my opinion, always been more workable than the rest of the Canon range.

There are now more reviews about canon 7d ll vs 1D lv.

Allmost everyone says in their conclusions.

When it comes to image quality : Choose the 1D iv.

would a 1D IV with 105k clicks be considered too much usage for a starting price of $1500 CAD?

Found one on Ebay and am also in the boat for a new camera, was considering the 7Dm2 / 70D.

I think that will be a normal price for a second hand copy , with that amount of clicks.
The 1d iv is rated for 300000 clicks and the new 7d ll for 200000.
And another advantage of the 1D iv is the superb build quality. (Feels like a solid brick bw!)
