Re: 1D Mark IV and 1D Mark III Users; Buying Help Please

I went from a mark III to a Mark IV about a year ago. In virtually every respect, the IV is a better camera.
The only disadvantages are:

1. Less battery life (not really an issue. It is just that the III lasted for days)
2. Bigger files to store

3. I do think that the III was a bit faster for initial AF acquisition and a bit better focusing in very low light.

I loved the files from the III but the IV adds 50% more MP with about a 2/3 increase in high ISO performance (in my opinion). At low iso the files are great. The IV is my do it all camera.
