Well, thought I would close out this thread with the following. Since I'll be shooting only one wedding in November and nothing but Ashland U sports all year, and now I got into some HS sports in Mansfield, I'll be doing some 30 games/events per fall, winter, spring. That's going to be a lot of sports. So I made the decision to sell my 1D Mark IV, 1Ds Mark III, and a 5D Mark III. I picked up another 1DX and so have two of those and will have also a 5D Mark III. This way I can shoot at events with two 1-D bodies. My lesson is that the bodies you have now lose very little value. To sell those 3 cameras was roughly $9k. So if you purchase an expensive camera and feel apprehensive, don't worry at all. You can get it back. My past purchases actually were investments that you could argue ended up being a free 1DX plus change. That change will go towards a lens perhaps. I'm not saying to go spend a ton of money without care, but if you get worried don't because I sold the stuff no problem at all.
