Upgrade 2nd body to combine 1dx. (5d mark III / 1D mark iv)

->> Hi all,

Recently i've upgraded from my 2x 1d mark III + 1x 1d mark Iv to a 1D-X + 1D III.
Of course stupid to sell the IV, but really wanted the 1dx.

Anyhow. now i notice i dont ever use the 1dIII anymore and loose key moments that way. so in order to solve this i want to buy a xtra body either a 5d III or a 1DIV again.

How does the 5D hold for you sport shooters.
I hardly shoot portraits and such and will use the 1dx for that i guess.
doing a lot of fieldhockey, soccer, and indoor sports, but will used for 99% of the times as second body during football/fieldhockey during both day and night games.

I tried the 5D mark III but hate the change of inteface when using 1D bodies for 4 years. but im sure if i shoot a few weeks with it it will get used to it. but how does the AF compare to the IV. anybody got ideas?

->> What problem are you trying to solve? If you don't use the 1DIII why would buying yet another body help your situation?

It would help to know why you aren't using the second body you already have.

->> The problem i have now is, i dont use the 1DIII in night games since its just a huge step from 1Dx to 1DIII.. i mean iso 2000 and up there is just no detail compared to the 1dIV and 1dX.

so what i would like to do is buy a new 2nd body either a 5d III or a 1D Mark IV. and keep my 1DIII for occasional remote.

->> My personal experience is that the 5D III has better AF than the 1D IV and the FF viewfinder is sweet. I also think the ISO is about 1/2-2/3 stop better on the 5D III but other than that,the 1D IV is a better camera.
FWIW when shooting the sports you mention in daytime I have my ID IV with a 300 2.8 and 1.4x and the 5D III with a 200 F2.0 The combo of full frame and crop is nice.
I really don't like having the two interfaces. The grip on hte 5D III helps but If I only shot sports, I would have a second 1D IV (and dump the 5D III) but I do enough other work that I like the full frame and bigger files.
Seems to me with the 1Dx, a 1D IV would be a great complement.
I don't know what a 5D III would add.
Good luck

->> Awesome Peter,

Great comment, i think so as well. thing is, i was afraid having a 70-200 on a crop and 400 on FF they come to close to each other. but thanks for your comment!

->> 5DmarkIII's silent mode is way quieter than the 1Dx, and the half-body brings in the advantage of size. other than that... not much really

->> I don't have 1DX and 1DIV, but i am planning to get 1DX to replace my 1D2n and then i will have 1D3 and 1DX, so i am worry to face same your problem and want to replace 1D3 too, but i will try to get used to it as i don't have strong budget to replace many bodies.
