I tried it at the store...fell in love.
5D2 and 5D3 already listed for sale. There should be a warning on this site about that camera.
I thought I was the only one
Just like others said "you going to love it". I thought my 5D III is good, well, it's good, but 1dx is better. Even 12000ISO
I would go so far as to say the 1DX is a stop better at high ISO than the 5D3. Just wish it wasn't so expensive and that I hadn't missed that deal for $5000
I saw the $4999 deals last week or so, but couldn't pull trigger due to unauthorized dealer, plus those units are not US model. I decided to spend $1000 more and bought one through authorized dealer. Anyways, $5000 or $6000 is a lot of money and I want to make sure my X is real X
I bought my 5D3 grey market and never had a problem! Is there a difference between US and non-US 1DX models?
My 5D3 had a different charger than the US model...but no biggie. Unfortunately I can just squeeze $5000-5500, so hopefully there's more deals out there.
I do not know the dif between the two. I often heard people buying BRAND NEW cameras through unauthorized seller came with missing pieces. However, the savings are HUGE.
On the postitive side, there are happy buyers too. I'm sure $4999 will come again. Just get ready
I ended up buying one today from The Camera Store. They have huge rebates going on, and to be honest, with the US dollar stronger than ours again the savings wouldn't have been too great buying from the grey market.
Man, what a camera! It's like doing weights at the gym holding it for any length of time! But it's so awesome nonethess! Only had chance to fire off a few shots tonight since I'm packing for a trip, but so far the AF is definitely noticeably faster than my 5D3.
