Figures. I just ordered one.

Okay, I know one is discontinued and the other is non-existent, but this is mostly for fun and a bit of learning.
Do the experts here think that the overall image quality of the 7DII will match or at least come close to the APS-H 1D IV? Why or why not?
I really like to know what your favourite of the two is.
Thank you for your comments.
It´s time for you to come and enlighten us!!!
My wife has now ruled me out as a complete nut case, running around shooting out of focus images and posting them on the internet ...
Now I have changed lens. These two are of the same light sources, shot with the Sigma 35 f1.4 Art. As you can see, exactly the same happens. At one stage I thought it had to do with AC and net frequency, alternatively some switch mode power supply noise, but I have used all kinds of shutter speeds and it does not affect the result.
Someone should know/understand how this happens.
Price is price and I agree that you should really want it to buy it. I also agree on the bokeh issue. But there is something I don´t really understand about boked. Because it varies, depending on light source.
I have attached two examples. The first is of five candle lights and the second is a chandelier with electric light. The bokeh from the electric light has a clear onion bokeh, whereas the candle lights are clean. If someone could explain why this happens, it would be most appreciated.
Shooting conditions were same same, f-stop, shutter speed and ISO.+
The only thing I can thing is that there is motion blur with the candle shot.
I'm happy to inform you all that the "soap" ended very well.
The photographer told me that I did the right thing calling him to talk about the bride approached me asking for my images and he's still calling me for other jobs.
Lesson learnt, I feel happy and relieved.
Gentlemen who do you think you are to say something like that? God?
Seriously you should know someone before you throw out you sentences.
I find it very amusing that somebody who obviously knows the right thing to do, but isn't inclined to do it because he also wants some money, has His Holiness the Dalai Lama as his avatar.
My wedding photographer is 8 hours, 800 edited pictures that I have full rights to have printed as I choose, 2 shooters and a printed book (about 50 photos) for $2000. He has done two different weddings I/my fiancé have been in and he does excellent work. One of them was even cheaper because he was a preferred vendor for the location.
I'm in New England so not exactly a cheap area of the US.
About a month ago I contacted a photographer because I wanted to get into the wedding business.
He accepted my request and he took me with him to a wedding, now:
The Bride called my up a week ago telling me that she didn't like the photographer images and she asked to have a look at my photographs instead.
I set up a gallery for her and she contacted my back very excited and happy about my work, making me so happy as well.
Photographers say that you have to know your client to work out a price, well I don't know how much their budget was but they hired a Limousine and a Cadillac for their wedding, this is what I've seen.
How much do you think should I charge them for about 30-40 photos, retouching and the time spend at the wedding?
I was thinking between $500 - $600 (Australia)
(By the way I didn't get paid by the photographer and he didn't tell me the client tried to get in contact with me)
Sure they would…assuming they have an MDR26 cable to connect it to their computer, a CameraLink-compatible framegrabber board in the computer to plug that cable into, control software, etc. I'd be surprised if more than a few people posting in this forum (there's at least one - me), much less half of them, have access to the necessary hardware to use a machine vison camera.
Well that didn't last long. Hope some folks got in on the deal.
Another reason to use Canon Price Watch's e-notification system.
