The 1DIV has better AF and better sensor and faster fps. It worked 40% better keeper ratio than 7D and cleaner at 1600 ISO, for BIF. Its AF is not as good as 5DIII and its sensor crop ratio is only 1.3 instead of 1.6 however the slightly cleaner noise may compensate

Got the 7D and need a backup. I am having trouble with AF on the 7D and sending it in.
I have a chance to pick up a new mark lV for 3900 bucks here.

Which one would you birders pick. 7D or lV... I have never shot with anything but the 7D.
