I do like the images from the 5D4 better, no question. I just spent 2.5 weeks in Botswana and was shooting these two bodies side by side.

Without question the 7D2 is a workhorse, and it's AF was always as good as I have used.
It was essentially welded to the 100-400mm VII, with a occasional use of the 18-135mm STM as well.

For most wildlife applications, the advantages of the 5D4 DR, IQ noise are not going to be required. Also to get similar field of view to the 400mm on a 1.6 crop I needed over 500mm on the 5D4, so I was using the 1.4x TC for 700mm on FF.

Shooting early AM and into the evening, the 5D4 certainly begins to come into it's own.

What other advantages does the 5D4 have? Add in the fact that if you ARE using a big prime with T-Cons like I was, the 5D4's AF handles the T-cons better than the 7D2. On a naked lens like the SIGMA, that advantage is moot IMHO as it's not really worth messing about with t-cons at all.

Lastly AF during live view is better on the 5D4.

Thanks for sharing your comparison. I have been doing a lot of reading on the net about these two bodies. I decided to keep using my 7D2 and buy some glass instead. I couldn't make up my mind on the 5D4 and I have always told myself if I only upgrade a body or glass and not both I should get the glass. I really like the crop factor of the 7D2 for wildlife. I will just deal with the noise in low light. I still get a lot of nice wildlife shots in low light. On the bright side, I ordered a 100-400 ll for hiking, but I bet this lens will get a lot more use than just hiking.
