The current 7D is still usable at 3200 ISO, if you use raw and some NR in f.i. LR afterwards imho...So it would have a higher res than the 1Dx and just 2fps less? That is the part I don't get. I think the 7D is due for replacement, and these maybe the specs, but if they are, I don't see it getting here till mid next year. 1DX supply is tight still, eh?We're talking entirely different sensors though. For outdoor sports shooters who get bright sunlight, sure, there might not be a big difference. But then again, the current 7D would probably be fine for them (though the AF upgrade would be nice)
But for anyone working inside or in lower light, the 1DX sensor can shoot comfortably at ISO 12,800 and even 25,600, and the current 7D struggles at ISO 1600. Even assuming they get an extra stop out of the 7D sensor, its still well behind.
I wouldn't rush to buy this camera. Mine showed up with manufacturing problems. I should have bought a D4.please give us more info. What problems did you encounter?
No offense, but I know how sales management works I'm an account manager myself at a multinational during my day job I was just expressing my frustration because Canon practically never does such rebate actions over here in BelgiumWhy not over here?I can't tell you why there are no rebates "Over Here", wherever that it, but it is dependent on the way Canon is organized.
Canon sales are broken into different regions with each region being a separate profit center. This means that each region has separate management and policies as well as prices. Each region tries to meet their quota for sales, cash flow, and profit. Sometimes, sales slow down, so a rebate might increase sales and cash flow. Profit may or may not be increased. Selling 3 lenses at a $100 profit makes more money than selling one for $200 profit, so the trick is to have a small price cut and triple the sales.
There is a danger, buyers come to hold off on purchases waiting for a rebate. This can play havoc with sales and inventory levels, and can result in shortages as production slows down and then a buying spurt uses up the inventory.
Different regions have their own managemt who manage the business in their own way. As long as they meet their goals, Canon is happy.
However, you can bet that no one is meeting their goals. Global sales are slow, and sales in the US and Canada seem to respond well to the rebates.
