Good to know .. mine still going strong works very well next to the 1Dx MKII.. my only gripe with the 1D MKIV is slow off the blocks as it take a split second longer to lock the af . Overall a great camera!

My complaint is that the 1D Mark IV AF gets confused more easily so you have to pay more attention and keep your focus point away from things that will confuse it. It seems like Canon just made some tweaks to the problematic 1D Mark III AF system to make it more reliable. The 1DX AF system was clearly a redesign and it takes less effort to keep something in focus.
