5D III with "free" 70-200 F2.8L II ISYes, this corresponds with what I've been told by Canon CZ a week ago - 1D X will be available by the end of June. Finally.I have a big doubts about what to buy... 5D Mark III Vs 1DX....
The question is: to buy or not to buy?
I know... some of you will say: "If you don't know the differences, you must to buy the 5D Mark III for sure"
I don't care the FPS, but the rest of features of the 1DX are great... But with my budget, I can buy a nice lens if finally decided to buy the 5D Mark III...
I know that is annoying thing but... what is your opinion?
what lenses do you currently have?
The 5D III is an amazing camera. It might not have all the custom functions of the 1D X but you can't go wrong with the price... I was shooting Architectural photos with it today from my boat, using a Canon 70-200 F2.8L II IS and the photos I got were amazing!
All shots were 1/500 F8.0 ISO 100... Camera has the BG-E11 which is not the best but usable... Actually after 2 hours trying to stand on a moving boat, the grip was the only complain I have...
The focusing was lightning fast, the viewfinder is huge and 100% and the LCD, even on bright sun light was great to look at...
The 5D III is for sure the best Canon camera ever, until the 1D X, of course, but still a great camera.
If your budget allows, get the 5D with the grip and you still have money left to buy 2 nice "L" lenses... I would get a 70-200 F2.8L II IS and a 24-70 F2.8L
Check out this sample of what I did today...
Wooow! Amazing picture!
The detail is incredible.
I have now only the EF 24-105mmL f/4, EF 50mm f/1.4 and the EF 85mm f/1.8 all with the 5D Mark II. My only complain to go crazy to buy the 1DX is to think that with the difference and a little bit more I can get a 70-200 F2.8L II IS and a 24-70 F2.8L
My pictures are basically Studio Shooting, wedding, Boudoir and travel landscapes/architecture.
What do you think?
