Seeing as we're talking about the 1D mk4.
The black AF point "issue", afaik, is how the 7D has been operating since day 1 (I've never found it a problem, and obviously noone else who bought a 7D found it a problem either).
It was only when the 5D3 and 1DX operated the exact same way that people started complaining. Does the 1D mk4 work that way as well?
Like every Canon DSLR except the 7D, 5D3 & 1DX the 1D Mk4 offers constantly illuminated red AF points.
The 7D does have the black AF points, though the points are much larger than in the 5D3 & 1DX viewfinders, and perhaps more visible. It's great that the black AF points are a non-issue for you, but can you find an acceptance somewhere in your consciousness that it is a very real issue for a lot of shooters who work in different environments to you.
