Would you buy - A7iv or A7Riv (for the same price)

I currently have this decision, and I have to say it's being a toughie.

A new A7iv, or a lightly used A7Riv, are both available for the same price (actually the A7Riv is a little cheaper).

The main differences I know of:


33mp sensor

Newer AF system (faster with more tracking modes)

Much faster processor

10-bit video


61mp sensor

Older AF and processor (but still probably decent today)

No 10-bit video unfortunately (and worse video in general)

Unsure but I'd heard the A7iv also had new/updated colour science in there, but I don't know how much of a difference it was.

I'm leaning towards the A7iv because of the video features and the newer processing system (plus I think the new menus are meant to be a big improvement), but that 61mp sensor....

Thought I'd ask the people who would know best!
