Please tell me that "Pro" doesn't mean a built-in non-removable grip. That would be a deal-killer for sure.Maybe for you. It's the complete opposite for me. I'll take the built in, fully integrated grip.
Part of the reason the ergonomics of 1-Series bodies is so brilliantly refined is that it's a totally integrated package.
Part of the reason for my post is that I find the ergonomics of the 1-Series worse than any Canon body aside from perhaps the M. They're too large and they're unnecessarily heavy. They're simply unusable for me. I'll take my 5D over a 1-series every day. In fact, if you give me a 1Dx for free, I'll put it in the basement along with my VCR.
That would not be a very nice thing to do. Just inbox me and I come to collect it. Will give you a non grip camera in exchange.
Btw the 1dx is simply usable to me.
