So, I throw this question out there.  Does Canon make a body that is just flat out great? 
Errrm...the 1DX. Have you used one?

Seconded. That body is flat out impressive.

I think the huge majority, at least the frequent posters, have a bad case of Canonitis requiring a 12 step program... I am looking at us neuroanatomist, bdunbar and me actually...

The TS-E 24 mm version II. I caress that lens on every landscape and architecture shoot. Love it to bits.

The 24 mm TS-E II is noted to be sharper than the 17 mm and can accommodate filters, something which is still possible with the 17 mm albeit with special adapters rather than standard Lee/Cokin/Hitech setups (Lucroit anyone?).

Worth it? OOOOOOH Yes would be the answer. All my B&W is via Silver Efex Pro 2.

I own both, and love both, depends what you want, a landscape/architecture lens or a sharp prime useful for portraits?

And the 135mm f/2L is still going strong at 17 years.

That beautiful thing is 17 years old?  :o

Honestly... 17??

EOS Bodies / Re: 1DX Replacement
« on: March 23, 2013, 01:05:33 PM »
No way the 1DX will be replaced that soon. Canon have to admit it is not a replacement for studio and landscape photographers, but really aimed at high speed action. Next high end body would probably be a high resolution sensor, although it does not make sense either, since the near medium format Nikon D800E is priced way less than what Canon would charge for a 1D body on release....

Nice lens, but no match for the TS-E II when in need of that focal length (landscapes and architecture)

It was not my intention of selling directly through CR and my OP is proof of that, just asking what other options I have. Sorry for the trouble.

A 1DX when I need the burst rate and the low light capabilities, a D800E for landscape and architecture.

You know you will do it anyway if the thought has been going round your head...  :P
