@EYEONE - The ironic thing is that part of this whole "upgrade" is that it was also a Christmas gift to me last year
So yes it is feeling like Christmas never came LOL.
@YoukY63 - A D3x?? You must be kidding, it will be unfair to look at anything but a D4
I want to see what the whole Nikon launch on the 24th is about. Joe Mcnally was involved with the D3 launch and maybe he is again on the 24th...
I think my overall confidence in Canon has just taken a knock... I am in South Africa and the Canon support here is terrible... well... actually more like "Doesn't exist". I usually take my gear to the US to have it serviced etc and therethe support is FANTASTIC. In South Africa Canon is just a name on a building - inside the building it is a lot of 3rd party companies operating under that name. But my blood is still red and I just cannot go away from Canon.
@UncleFester - I have several bodies and depends on what I am shooting. Golf is 50% of my income and Studio work the other 50%. I want to go 1Ds for studio work. I don't have a 1Ds at the moment and use a 1D mkIII or 5D mkI for golf. Lenses depends on what I shoot, it can range from 18mm to 400mm or even sometimes longer with a 1.4x converter.
I suppose I just wanted to know that I wasn't the only one who can't wait for Christmas!
