Primes are what I used in the 70's because the zoom lenses sucked.

Sounds like an $8,500 camera to me
I was looking at the specs for a 5Dc and it's really perfect for what I do. I'm not a sports photographer whatsoever. I prefer to do landscapes and portraits. I love the photos that come from a FF body. I like that the usable ISO for the 5Dc is WAY higher than my T1i. I'm not into DSLR filming anymore so I don't need a video mode in my camera. A used 5D is about the same as a T3i. An On-Camera flash isn't needed because I have a Canon 430ex II. I feel more safer having a better build quality.
Do you think my want for a 5Dc is complete sane? or is the 5Dc not a viable option anymore.
I know the product isn't out there yet but, it's a shame how Canon holds back on what their loyal buyers want when they (Canon) knows what is wanted.
They claim one body is a flagship (1DX), holding out on what another body has (5DMK3) only to give their fan base what they originally asked for (more megapixels) shortly afterwards. You cant tell me they didn't plan on a higher MP body announcement after 1DX & MK3 sales peak.
I also know that Canon didn't force anyone to buy either one of those bodies ... but lets face it ... Canon plays games with those who keep them competitive in a world of serious competition.
If I were to stop at a Kool-aid stand & buy a hot, watered down glass of Kool-aid from a little kid, only to have them pull out a fresh/cold picture from under the stand afterwards .... that would piss me off!
What Kool-aid are you drinking? The fan base, for years now has been asking for what they got in the mk3 - better AF, better performance at high ISO, and better ISO range - its pretty much exactly what the mk3 is. The whining about only started when people heard about the d800. And now there is this vocal segment who twist history to be what it isn't. Nikon rolled the dice and put their big MP camera out before canon did.
I also vote for the 135L F2.0.On APS-C that's 216mm... way to long imo. Even on FF the 85mm f/1.8 is mostly sufficient for portrait shots. On APS-C, 50mm is the maximum, especially in small music clubs with poor lightning.
I'd rather have & wait on one of these:
