Jsut got hold of a 1dx for 8999 brand new, so I put up my 5d3 and TS 17 for sale, I have until wednesday to make it happen, fingers crossed!
8999 In which currency ?
Don't you feel sorry to part with TS 17 ?
I bought it 2 months ago and I wouldn't sell it. I believe good lenses are forever (well almost but you get my point)
I am in the land of Expensive, Norway:
Yeah, it sucks, but we have free healthcare, lol.
Yeah, I feel sad parting with the 17, but the truth is, I hardly ever use it, and that has nothing at all to do with the lens, it has everything to do with the fact that I don't use that wide angles. I get easily bored with UWA, because I don't have any surroundings here to make use of it either for architecthure or landscape.
A fantastic lens, but it was the same with my 300 f2,8 L IS, sickest lens ever, just a totally wrong focal for me. I also almost never use the 135 and 85.
Almost 9300 dollars. How about ordering from abroad? Or traveling ?
Also is the 1DX really necessary?
You seem to prefer to use: 24L II, 35L, 50L
So I exclude sports. It's landscapes, people, street photography maybe.
It is the best for low light photography of course if that is what you want.
I personally would keep the 5DMkIII which must be an excellent all round camera (and second best for low light photography) and the TS 17. Of course you know best.
P.S Anyway 24L II and Aurora Borealis in Norway must be a killer combination (either with a 5DMkIII or a 1Dx)
