The reason I ask is I am anticipating winning a small lottery and am considering getting either a good used 1Dmkiv or a new 7Dmkii. I DO NOT do vids so that is not a factor. More concerned about low light, focusing, and above all QUALITY of the picture OOC. Thanks for input. PLEASE do not give your opinion if you have NOT tried both of these cameras....I can guess just as well as you can!
