I assume you are including me in the "FF snobs" comment? If so why, what do you know about my needs, current gear and the 7D MkII that I don't?
Oh I own a 1D too.
No, but you did. But you made me read your post. You say you have no interest in a "performance" crop body but you still own a 1D? Incidentally, the 7D and the 1Ds Mk III were aimed at different segments. While the 7D is better for some, the 1Ds III is better for others. I've seen 7Ds on the sports sidelines and no 1Ds IIIs. It's the reverse in the studio. I have FF, APS-H, and APS-C bodies that I use in different situations. The 1Dx would replace all 3 but at twice the cost. I don't know your needs but you don't know everyone else's either.
