Canon 1D Mark IV vs Canon 5D Mark II

From what I’ve read, the 1D Mark IV has a better auto focus system, faster continuous shooting capability (10 fps), and a more rugged body than the 5D Mark II.  So, I’m guessing that this would be the ideal camera for professional sports photographers or photojournalists in a war zone.

Here’s the most helpful article I found online (the ISO comparisons are especially useful):

In low light situations where you need high ISO settings, the full frame sensor on the 5D kicks the 1D’s rear.  Oh, and if you’re not doing high speed continuous frame shooting in a war zone, the 5D pretty much mops the floor with the 1D.
