Perusing the Canon threads, I'm far from home with not a Canon with me, but looking at all the images posted here in the 1Div thread I have a thought. The 1Div is the most capable/most affordable EOS body one can get now. I was just reading Glenn Bartley's opinion on the new 1DXii. In the review he mentions that he'd like a blend of the 7Dii and the 1DXii (I'm paraphrasing a bit)....doesn't it already exist in the 1Div ??
A 1DXii arrived a week before we flew out. There is no doubt it is a great machine but it will undoubtedly leave some/many wanting for reach. The 7Dii has the reach but will never have the ISO prowess of the flagship; so again I'd tell anyone wanting a 'sleeper' to look at the iv :) Mine had 43K clicks when I got it so I know low mileage units are out there, the prices resonate with 7Dii prices but with the remarkable sensor that proudly sits in the middle of the crop/FF world. I'll never understand why Canon didn't progress with it being the wonderful blend it is. OK enough pontificating, got a boat to catch to Pyrimiden.

Yes it can be. Interestingly enough DPReview never picked up on this in their original test in the specifications list they give on the second and third page of their tests in 2010.

I've had two bodies now bought brand new one year apart from when they first were released and they're the ones I use the most. They have been used for weddings, religious festivals, sport, holidays and they're a great all-rounder.

Having still kept my MK2's I did find the focussing points had a smaller footprint than the MK2's. When I first had them I kept missing focus until I upped my game regarding accuracy or maybe the MK4's were quicker to move focus than the MK2's I don't really know. Original batteries still going strong after 5/6yrs of use.

I met a Canon rep (for Michigan/Ohio/Indiana I think) in the last year, who called the 1D4 "a Beast" when I mentioned I was lucky enough to have one.

I think it is one of the three most cost-effective bodies available right now, along with the 5D classic, and the 1D3. Although they both have their shortcomings, the 5D classic gives you a great, large pixel size full frame and the 1D3 a great huge pixel pro sports and nature shooter.

Meanwhile the "Beast" is the most cost effective "all-arounder" you can get, with almost no faults. It can't match a 1D X or 1D X2, but what a price difference!

Shop careful and you can have all three for $2200 I bet ... (I updated this price from $3000 after reading some replies)

I just picked up a 5Dc here for a very affordable net $300.

I did have to get a used battery grip and an L bracket for another $110 combined.

Still..... I'm looking forward to the results. I know I'll have to shoot at lower ISOs... but for what I'll be doing with it, that won't be a problem.

I have one original battery and 2 new Canon's LP-E4n's and the original keeps up with the newer batteries just fine. One of the "beast" positives. The batteries do last a long time, in the amount of shots you can take and the age of the battery.
