thanks Jake (& to other posters who have discussed the 1D4 vs 7D2). living on a bank of a tidal river, I hope to start shooting birds/wildlife this year from a boat - for the first time - mostly w/the 100-400II w/sidekick rigidly mounted to a sirui cf monopod.
I'm considering the 1D4 vs 7D2 as alternatives to my current 1D3 & 70D bodies.
I'm sensing the 7D2 provides today's best AF (this side of a 1Dx/1Dx2) & no real downgrade from a 1D4 in other respects - thinking, primarily, for BIF, wildlife, landscapes & river scenes. seems, if I'm understanding, that the AF concerns have faded. but perhaps new, US stock/authorized dealer - full warranty - would be prudent...
Looks like my 1D3 gets a reprieve, for now. Not so much for the 70D - although I really like the articulating touch screen. Seriously, if Canon can put that technology on the 70D, 80D & even the lowly SL1, why not on the 7D2? baffling...
That is an easy one. Weather sealing.
