honestly I didn't find that the 1dIV's image quality was significantly better than the 7D's.

Not sure I can agree with that part. Owning both of them, I can tell the 1DIV files are much less noisy and much easier to handle in post processing. As much as I like my 7D, I find its noise performance is rather disappointing.

I was in the same boat. I had CPS send me a 1DIV for a couple of weeks to try out, then the 5DM3 for two weeks. By the 2nd day with the 5DMark III I'd made my choice after shooting in a poorly lit arena for some barrel racing shots. The shots I got at ISO12800 blew the 1dIV completely out of the running for me. I can deal with a few FPS less and just time my shots better. When I need a couple more fps or a bit longer reach, my 7D works great and honestly I didn't find that the 1dIV's image quality was significantly better than the 7D's.

And this is where the differences B/T the two bodies are. 5D3 is noticeably better in low light than the MKIV especially if you need servo...Then its not a contest. 5D3 spanks the MKIV in low light with servo use.. just no contest really. I never had problems with the MKIV in One shot in low light, but, many other reported issues. If your gonna be in low light a lot, i would lean 5D3,, if not, advantages to the MKIV over the 5D3 in good light.

I own a 1D4 and 5D3 and find the images to be indistinguishable at ISO 6400 and 12800, so that's strange.

I also find both to be a huge step better than the 7D.

1D3 high iso is a bit limited. Good enough, but not on par with 5d3. Also the AF in servo is not very reliable. It's a great camera but I'd skip it unless you get a screaming deal.

Well, my point was that you could get a great sports camera and a great full frame camera for less money than a 5D3 or 1D4. Pretty standard deal on a 1D3 is $1100 these days. The autofocus on my 1D3 is extremely reliable, and most on POTN that have used the 1D3 and 7D say that the 1D3 focuses more reliably. 1D3 AF really kicks butt in low light -- sounds like it's about the same there as the 5D3.

No argument on the ISO though, but the noise is more pleasant than the 1.6x noise I've seen.

+1 very true statement , i sold my 1D4 and kept the 5D3, lighter and i never used 10FPS, i learned to time my shots better, i find the tracking on the 5D3 to be just as good as the 1D4

I do also agree that the 1D3 is still really good even at high ISO for indoor sports. This was JPEG (not a RAW to JPEG conversion) at I think ISO-3200 and f/2.8 with the 1D3 and 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II
