Indeed. The V is your best bet for low light given the much faster lens (ability to capture more light at lower shutter speed).

If you want to save some $$ and are okay with a slower camera (more wait time between taking photos and slower high speed shooting), go with the IV. The IV can capture just as good low light photos as the V.

The IV is cheaper, but the autofocus in the V is far more advanced.

This is a good point. If you're taking photos of action or moving targets, the V can pay off as it can lock focus much faster.

I missed this one earlier because I don't use autofocus.
