Quick update: went to local camera shop today(by myself this time) looking for a backpack to fit 24-70 II and 70-200 combo. Some how, my American Express got charged @ $6,000ish :o

Local camera shop has one left - display unit. My freshly brand new 1DX should arrive next tues or wed - with 3yrs Canon US warranty for less than $6200

Hope the wife is not reading this thread... ;D
Uh oh, you made three big mistakes: (1) you left the house with your AMEX (2) you went alone (3) you held the camera in your hands!

The good news is that you get a 1D X for your troubles!  Congrats!  I'm sure you're going to love it and I look forward to seeing your 1D X photos on this thread.

Thanks mackguyver. I took your words and went for it  ;)

My 3yrs(preschooler) will have end of the year celebration this coming Friday 13th. Will pair it up with my 5D III. I'll post some pics.

What got me really interested are HIGH-ISO, metering, and AF. Although 5D III is ok at 6400. If 1DX can give me decent 12000, then I'm ALL IN. mackguyver claimed his cut off point is 25000 - I do trust his words.

Everything else just bonus ;)

The 1Dx is an excellent all round piece of gear, it's ability to pull good images at quite high ISO is also excellent, but be careful of believing all you read, the Camera is good, it's not Magic, noise in the dark areas will always be an issue as you raise the ISO, getting good Images isn't going to be an issue, getting good Images with controllable noise no matter the sensor, will be until that problem is engineered out, could be a long wait.

I can't see anyway you will not be Happy with the 1Dx, but it's transient, lasts until Canon bring out that next newer, shinier whatever.

Perfect opportunity here for our resident evil trolls to pop in with some DR dribble.

Your feedbacks are greatly appreciated eml58.

If thing works out, this will be my 2nd big purchase($11K on 400mm f2.8 IS II) this year and I need to put an end to it ::)

Really wish you all the very best with that Dylan, may be a little self delusional ??  :D

The size & weight of the 1Dx will give you a moments pause, then you'll turn it on, all downhill from that point, but you can always look at the current purchase price over what most of us originally paid, and quietly chuckle to yourself.

Thanks guys for the head up.

Big kitty
400mm, f2.8,  ISO 200,  1/1000

Wow...now that how you photograph the cat. Awesome Menace

I'm going through my gear and doing little house cleaning right now, might be able to join 1DX soon here.

Thanks Dylan777.  Look forward to you joining the rest of us here soon. Tc.

Rental 1DX will arrive next week. Will get to play with it through the weekend. Final decision will be made. If thing works out, this will be my 2nd big purchase($11K on 400mm f2.8 IS II) this year and I need to put an end to it ::)

1. Indoor or low light shooting, keep an eye on high ISO. My cut off point is 6400
There's your excuse to get a 1D X.  My personal 5DIII ISO threshold is also 6400, but my 1D X threshold is 25600 :).

Are you joking :o?  My itchyy for 1DX has not yet ended.

at 24mm, i would like it to stay at or above 1/50.  at 200mm, 1/200 would generally be fine for me.

i wish you could set it for a few different focal lengths instead of a single deault.  16, 24, 50, 85, 100, 150 & 200mm would be cool    8)

It calls "M" mode in 5D III. You control aperture and shutter speed, camera selects best ISO.

When shooting in "M" mode:
1. Indoor or low light shooting, keep an eye on high ISO. My cut off point is 6400
2. Outdoor/day light, keep an eye on exp comp

EOS Bodies / Re: 50d just died, trip in a week, what should I do?
« on: June 06, 2014, 10:50:17 AM »
Huh 70d over 7d..?On the specs the 7d seems to be on par or above the 70d. May I ask why you would choose the 70d over the 7d? Is it the newer tech of the 70d?

Sounds like your question has been answered.

Try to get 6D if you can. Keeper rate might be low when shooting sport, but still, you CAN use it to shoot sport. The key to FF is you get MUCH-MUCH better IQ.

Likely many already said, 6D + 24-105 deal is a good start. I would add 50mm f1.4 if budget allows.

Lenses / Re: New 70-200mm MKII DUST!

Updated the original post.

Here are some much better images now I have had time to evaluate the problem and to help my send back procedure.

As you can see I don't think I'm being over the top, there is a rather big, strange shaped object in-between the 1st and second element of the lens, its not a second hand lens it is brand new straight from the factory!

You paid for brand new lens, you should get nice clean brand new lens.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: EDC gear
« on: June 06, 2014, 10:20:31 AM »
what I meant with my original question was to get to know what you use and carry each and every day

so feel free to share  ;)

I apologize for being off topic.

I'm using this to hold all my gear, except 400mm f2.8 IS II: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/611107-REG/Lowepro_LP36033_PWW_Pro_Roller_x200_Case.html  I always have 24-70 II + 70-200 f2.8 IS II attached to x2 5D III at all time. The primes are in the bag when needed.

Since I like to have all the gear with me including 400mm, I'm thinking this: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/967310-REG/think_tank_photo_576_30_high_volume_rolling.html

Add 40mm pancake to your kit = DONE

Your current body and lenses are solid, unless you need more speed.

yes I was thinking about this option, but if I'll byu some lens now, it'll be some faaast prime  ;)

PS: or Sony RX1 - it's really tempting

My wife uses RX1, she likes it a lot.
