Before I ask question, here is my work and what kind of photography I do.

Question: Should I really buy Mark IV or III is good enough and with the difference of the amount spend on lenses and lights? There is about $1400 difference in the price between the two and I am debating whether to buy 3 or 4. Need some help from your experience. I understand 4 is more latest but again the kind of work that I do, does that really justify to buy 4 and spend $1400

AND I do not do videography so video is out of discussion and consideration!

I have gone from the 6D to the 5D Mark IV and have noticed a very significant difference in the quality and control of my images. There is probably not as big a difference between the Mark III and IV. It is a personal decision whether you feel the difference is worth the cost. It may be a few years before the next upgrade. Is it worth the wait for a more significant improvement?

There was not much IQ difference between 6D and MIII, with the 6D being slightly better in low light (some say...)
There was a big difference in speed, handling, double memory card, focus points etc.

If you have the cash and the itch for it just buy it. It will make you happy and willing to do more. If you just need a second camera as I said before either 6D or MIII will do just fine.

I also jumped from 6D to 5D Mk IV. I did not consider the Mk III. The IV is in so many ways a superior machine. Even though I rarely shoot sports, I've not regretted dropping the cash for the Mk IV. The image quality has been a very significant step up from the 6D, and the AF performance is incredible. Don't underestimate the value of the DPAF live view AF, it can really make a difference when you simply cannot have your eye to the viewfinder.

Thank you guys!

This is what I was looking for to see what a person who was on 6D moved to Mark IV sees the difference. It was for $1400 so was thinking before just pour the money and then think on why did I do.
