Re: Upgrade from 5D Mk II to 1D Mk IV ?

You should be able to look at the specs for the two cameras and see the principal purposes for which each camera was designed and the advantages and disadvantages of each. I wouldn't think someone who uses a 5D Mark II for its principal intended purposes would be happy replacing it with a Mark IV or vice versa because a 5D II isn't designed to do the same things the Mark IV is designed to do and vice versa and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Not that either can't do what the other can, they just don't do it as well. Of course if you're unhappy with your 5D II because, for example, you photograph birds and the FPS aren't fast enough or your longest lens isn't long enough, that's a different matter because then you aren't using the 5D II for the purpose for which it was designed.
