As a working pro that makes a living off my tools (currently 1DX's), there are a couple of features that I'd spend a lot of money for. ..
#2: Digital crop that would allow cropping into the sensor on the fly, similar or better than the Nikon D3/D4 can do.
Interesting. May I ask why? It's a nice to have, maybe, but if that (software) functionality adds "a lot of money" to the cost of a body, I'd prefer to put that money into memory and crop in post.
For most of my work there is no time for post processing. My images go straight from the camera to viewing stations where my customers can view and purchase the images. Selected images also go straight to slideshows running on multiple 50" screens. If a parent sees a good shot on the 50" screens, chances are they are going to head to the viewing stations to look and hopefully make a purchase. A my larger venues my selected shots are projected on 20'x30' screens. Again no time for post processing.
The crop on the fly ability allows me to put a more tightly cropped image in front of the customer, whether it be on my viewing stations, 50" monitors or 20'x30' screen. For me this increases sales.
Fair 'nuff. Thanks John!
