I am looking between 1DX and 5D mark III.
So looking to see what are the differences between the two. The ones i can see are
10. ISO difference - If the native is 1 stop lower on 5D Mark III, that means most probably the usable ISO is ISO 1600 and can go to ISO 3200/6400 in tough situations. For me coming from 5D, this is atleast 2 stop increase already for Mark III. And for the dance concerts i do take it is sufficient. There is enough lighting on the stage for me to be happy with a 2 stop increase. So professionally i am good. Personally higher ISO will allow me to take photos of parties etc without the flash and capture more of the ambience. So 1DX has an advantage - tiny bit only.
Anything else that is different. Anything else i need to consider?
The 5D3 will not be 2 stops better than 5D in high ISO performance.
Perhaps 1 stop. Perhaps even 1.5 stop as would be extremely good and better than D3s. Certainly not 2 stop.
I can't promise a level of excitement like the C300 announcement, but at least there WILL be a 5D Mark III, so it will be better than Geraldo and the vault.
Official announcement here a bit later today.
Announcements will be on March 2, due to the Academy Awards taking all the news.
based on the OP's info: yepp. spot on. so, I will purchase the cam sometime next year then, hoping for a decent price drop. I am not an early adopter anyway. Hope the new 5D will get 1024k ISO at H2. Meanwhile my 30D will gently click.So this would pretty much confirm the 3k+ price to me...That's what I was going to say... No way $3500 is the price of a kit of new 5D3 plus new lens, as some people speculate/dream...
