My 5D3 went back due to what I think is a short related to the electronic viewfinder. That being said, I am on the fence and strongly considering getting the 1D X instead. I'm next in the queue at my local dealer, and if I decide to pull the trigger, I will have one by the end of this week.
For those of you who have purchased a 1D X, I'm curious as to why? What makes it worth it to you? Specifically, why would you buy one over the 5D3? Of course, specifications-wise it's better in almost every way, but it's nearly double the price. I'm sure many of you guys are pros, who have previously owned a 1D series. I don't have any experience with the 1D, so is the build quality really that much better than the 5D series?
I would appreciate any input that would help me decide... I'm either getting another 5D3, or upgrading to the 1D X. I'm sure I'll keep either body for a long time to come (my last camera was a 20D that I've kept for nearly 7 years).
Thanks for your help!
