Call your insurance company.
My comprehensive homeowner policy covers personal possessions including all the camera gear. Even if you rent, you should still protect yourself with home insurance.
I see very little whining on the forums against the 5d3;
Yes, and I was asking him seeking more information as I was trying to determine if he wanted the lens again, even with the other two. It appears from your comment that he does not want to purchase. If this is the case then thank you for the clarification. I mean no disrespect I was only trying to learn more. I understand this lens is good, but not so much better than the other two.
So some questions:
- What would you recommend in general in above situation?
- Will the 6D represent a large upgrade from 450D regarding focusing? How large?
- Could a new sensor (long awaited) in a new crop (e.g. 70D) be the 'for me perfect compromise'?
- Wait for announcements - or move now?
I was thinking as you but OP had said:family / children: better with prime lenses
landscapes: better with a 24-70
Interesting. I have the opposite viewpoint, mostly. My kids move fast - a zoom offers the flexibility I need to capture them from arm's length to across the yard. For landscapes, I have the camera on a tripod and time at my disposal. TS-E 24mm and mucking about with gran ND filters? No problem.
"images are usually taken after I'm back from work so its mostly in low light situations"
so how long would you shoot in the rain with your 1dx neuro lets say heavy rain i have used my 1dx in heavy rain with no problems yet though but only for say 10-15 minutes.
Okay, so is it safe to assume that since your still wanting to get the EF 400mm f/5.6L USM Super Telephoto lens that it has some advantages to the other two lenses correct? Not trying to be funny in asking this question. Just trying to learn more.

But my question is does fresh water cause corrosion that quickly it was under water for at least 10 seconds
Nikon is approaching the problem of maximising profit by providing products that give maximum benefit to the photographer that cares about the quality of their photograph in the belief that this is the #1 priority for camera purchases.
A 2% difference.
You're assuming that all Canon turn-a-rounds were speedy...
Or in other words, Canon seems to be ignoring the photographer and going for the consumer (which kind of agrees with your statement above.)
It's not that it is poor but rather that there has been no improvement and it isn't as if there are no problems that need fixing.
but I think you can skimp on the tripod.
No, not grasping at straws, just simply considering all of the lenses that are available for a camera. If you want to limit yourself to only those lenses that the camera vendor makes, fine, but don't impose those restrictions on others.
There are many fine lenses that are made for use on Canon/Nikon that are not made by Canon/Nikon.
If I was going to have a grudge, it would be because of something it them taking 4 tries to Canon's lens repair service to fix the IS in a 70-300 IS USM (non-L).
"Yeah we fixed it", "No you haven't, try again." "Fixed it this time.", "Put on a camera and it didn't work, try again." la la la
No, the point of me saying this is because lots of people are arguing that "Canon cameras sell well, so obviously 18MP is enough" or "... so obviously the DR isn't important." In a sense they're right, but it appears that it isn't the IQ that is selling the camera - it is the bells and whistles.
