We never see Western Scrub-Jay's at our house. Then when I was practicing with a rental 100-400mm, this one dropped onto my fence to smile for a photo. 1/400 5.6 ISO 100

The question is hypothetical and presumes
1) a 5DIV would improve generically on the 5DIII but with a significant MP boost (at least 32MP compared to the existing 22MP for the 5DIII)
2) the price range of such a camera would follow the pattern of the 5D-family (around 3.500$ at launch)
I'd suggest wide open (maybe down a stop if you have direct sunlight) and trade off ISO for shutter speed. 1/800 will get you a little prop blur and a decent chance of a sharp airframe. For jets wind the shutter up as far as you can go. A gimbal will keep the horizon level even if it isn't in frame. Spot metering and AF worked for me, lots of jazz going on around your subject. Bring lots of water, snacks, sunscreen, hat, ear plugs, seat etc.
I went for the GPS. Having the photo come up on the map view in Lightroom is nice. Wi-fi would also be nice but i really don't use it that often. I prefer to tether the camera.
The selected point appears when I activate AF (I use rear-button AF). However, I cannot move it until I first hit the AF mode selection button...then that frees the AF point to be moved somewhere else with the joystick. In other modes, I just have to activate AF, then I can move the selected point with the joystick without the intermediate requirement of pressing AF mode first.
I use back-button AF, I just tap the AF-ON button then I can move the joystick to move the AF point (even after I've released the AF-ON button, although as I stated above, moving the AF point 'times out' just like the metering). That's in all modes, including AI Servo + 61-pt auto.
I dunno what's up. I'm kind of ticked, as since I reset, I now have to press that AF mode button to get the AF point movable in every AF mode. I can no longer simply tap the joystick (after initially activating AF, however that's done) to get it moving. I think something is up with my 5D III.
Thanks for your help, I'll probably get by with the Medium Slope!
A competition for all of our US members, two photos from my hotel window:

Canada might be different, but in the USA for the gold level you get:
