Yes, you will notice the difference between 6 & 8 fps, but you aren't going to likely be satisfied with your keeper rate or IQ. I think you'll find the useful ISO range too limiting, especially considering what you're used to with the 5D3. I recently picked up a used 1D4, and it has gained me 2 stops of ISO, plus more fps. AF tracking is much better, too.

I guess I have become pretty accustomed to the nice high ISO images from the 5D3 and would definitely feel limited if the real world working range was limited to 1,000ISO. I currently shoot up to 3,200 without even thinking about it and the images clean up nicely in Lightroom.

Plus of course I never really have to think about issues with focus either.

I guess the biggest thing was looking for a second body with higher FPS without spending too much money, but the 1DIII / 1DIV idea is interesting.
