Re: 1d mark iv instead of a 5d mark iii

I don't have the 5DIII, but I have been using the Mark IV for some time now for indoor and outdoor sports, and find it to be great. The 1.3X factor helps with sports to a degree, compared to full frame. If you do not plan on enlarging more than 16x20, I think you will like the Mark IV. I don't always use the fast drive, trying to rely on my own timing for tripping the shutter, but it is nice to have if you need it. The build may be a bit more solid than the 5DIII's. Also, the focus points in the viewfinder light up in a bright red, unlike the black points in the 1DX and 5DIII. You can read a lot more about that with some searching!

Overall, my opinion would be to go with the Mark IV if the condition is that good.
