that´s interesting... i always wonder how people manage such a switch?
given that we speak about more then two bodys and two lenses... how comes that people seem to think about switching brands so easily?
The bodies are pretty much worn and have been deprecated almost entirely. Lenses are different, but they also show wear and tear, so it would not be too hard to write them off and sell them. When I said we were at the tipping point, I meant that our equipment needed to be replaced soon... so far Canon has been good, but now Nikon (D4) seems to be the strongest contender.
i made a short calculation and when i sell all my canon stuff on ebay and had to buy it new from nikon i had to invest an additional 15000 euros (ok then i had everything brand new but that doesn´t cut the cake).
Exactly, we get new equipment that is going to last another 4-5 years easily!
that would make me think if minor video features are worth it.
i could buy a dedicated video cam for that money.
Good luck finding cinematic/footage with under $10k non-DSLR equipment.
beside.... what awesome features you speak about that a 1D X does not offer??
Clean HDMI output for one. Audio monitoring for another.
