A few months ago, you almost sell your your 5D III + lenses to settle for 6D + 24-70 f4 IS. ADN NOW..........you want 1D X? ??? ::) :-\ :) :D ;D

No i was in a light gear phase. I cured that with a sony nex 6. Then I was in a 1d x phase but thanks to the advice of you fellow canon rumor chaps i will go for a new lens. I am thinking the sigma 35mm.

For light gear phase, I went with Sony RX1 - small enough to carry around and takes amazing photos.

If Sony or Fuji come out FF build in P&S body like RX1 with exchangable lenses ...I'll sell all my Canon gear ;)

Here are some photos from RX1:

I agree that is a nice camera. I just have a hard time investing in such an expensive single fl camera. Nice pics:)

Spec out an i7 pc that you can custom build. ($700-1000)
I like the hp zr24 series ips display $360 ish
Get a 15" macbook pro retina 256gb i7 2.3ghz at microcenter.com or bestbuy for $1900 and most have great condition open box ones for $1700.

Get a 1tb usb3 external for the storage the mac lacks. And it runs windows well in bootcamp. I am running it now with no issues.

You can acheive that with $3500. Also if your monitor dies replace it. If you need a bigger hd or video card get it. You will be stuck with an imac.

weren't you going to sell all your gear to downgrade to get a SMALLER camera a few weeks ago? :o

Ohh and I got a sony nex 6 for that lightweight it. Still nothing beats a true dslr. Its got ok quality but not a 5d thats for sure.

Yeah but i have been getting back into takingbpictures and so my itch went up to the 1dx as i said going to keep what i have and try the 16-35 or 35mm prime just not sure which one.

201
I'd definitely consider it. I personally think the Retina mac laptops pure helium. Can't upgrade the hard drive, can't upgrade the RAM, cost $3500 for what I'd consider a minimum computer. I have one of the first MBP Unibodies and I just upgraded the RAM and drive to a SSD.

My next body is going to be a 1D (notice I didn't say X), hopefully with a lot of pixels.

what hard drive did you use? I have a late 2010 15"unibody MBP, been thinking of upgrading the whole machine or just upgrading RAM and HD to SSD I think mine has 8GB ram already can you upgrade them to 16GB?

I have the newest 2013 refresh
2.7 ghz processor i7
16gb ram
512gb ram
15"
I am running it in boot camp windows 8
Calibrated the screen has 99% rgb
Best display ever.
This model costs $2599 if you know someone in school then you get the education discount
Hardly $3500.

I have always wanted the 1d x but am unsure the extra $3k is worth it for me. The pro's for me are better iso in low light and af point metering. Cons size and could that money get me a nice 35 mm prime and maybe a 1.4iii teleconverter and keep my macbook. Just stuck on the decision. Any suggestions?

I was glad you kept your gear - http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=12123.msg215823#msg215823 - but if you were thinking your current gear was tough to lug around, the 1dx will make it even tougher.

Don't you like the 5d3? If not, by all means get the 1DX, OTW it may be better to get a couple of super-fast primes.

IMHO based on what you say you shoot, it is likely that spending an additional $3,000 will lead to more remorse than satisfaction. Don't do it!

I do but just wanted the better low light performance of the 1d x but it sounds smarter to keep it and add somemore lenses. I also think ill explore my wireless flah capabilities.

203
Aside from the pleasure of a 1D series body, why the 1Dx?  Do you need 12 FPS or the difference in high ISO between the 5DM3 (which is a  great camera - I prefer it over my 1DM4)?

Unless there is a compelling reason, or the expected pleasure from owning 1Dx is very high, I would stick with the 5DM3 and macbook pro retina.
Yeah those were my thoughts about better iso performance in the 400-12800 range and better metering finally it sounds like there is more to work with in editing raws. Ie shadows. The cost and added weight are the major cons.

204
Yeah i was going thru some recent photo's and the 5d is great. I think i will take that advice and get a prime just not sure of the sigma 35mm or canon 50mm1.2l seems like 35mm could prove useful also wondering if I should get the 16-35. Would that serve a purpose up close of family portraits?

Nice shots. If you can swing it I would find a good used 70-200 f4is. Great lens. The 2.8 is better but of course then theres the cost.

206
If it were me, I'd stick with 5D3.  1DX and 5D3 got the same AF (almost).  As for low light performance, 1DX is just a little bit better.  I suggest getting 1DX only if more than 6fps performance is crucial to you.  Your macbook is also important since it is so good to edit raw files using mac.  If I were you, I'd like a good TS-E lens instead of the 35 though.  :)

Sorry if this sounds stupid but what would be the application for a ts-e?

Also this is for july so do you think I should see what else Canon drops by then? Maybe a 70d with revamped 18-300 would be nice for the trip. Just wishful thinking.

Take your 70-200, and get either a 16-35 or a 17-40. Cover the 40 to 70 with a few steps either way.

If I were there taking pictures of you and family, I'd have the 17-40 on most of the time. Up close and personal with the people, and the backgrounds are all there and in decent focus. Five years from now you'll look back at the pictures, see yourselves AND get a good look at where you were.

If you want a fast prime, stay home and do the blurred-out portraits there!

Enjoy the time with the family!

Ok so never had a uwa before. So if I get close it will be easier to grab more of the character shots up close?

Your question is sort of vague.  Are you taking the two zooms you mentioned?  Or do you want to leave those two and bring one of the ones you mentioned as options?  Or are you bringing both zooms and want one more lens?

I would say, just bring a 24-105.  It's good enough in the quality department and gives you both decent wide angle and a little telephoto.  My second choice would be the 24-70 f4 IS and my third the 30mm 1.4. (This is assuming you are leaving the two zooms you own at home, which is what I think you are saying.)

I would bring the zooms leaving the 70-200 in the room for a few days. Just looking for a few lighter gear days so was thinking 24-70 f4 is, 35mm prime like the f2 is or other suggestions. I am all about getting mickey and my twins in focus so wide apertures are not going to help me with that i usually sit 5.6-10 when shooting outdoors to get them in focus.
