Well, interesting conversations. My whole point to this when I asked "is it worth the money", not meaning should I go spend 7 grand on a camera, but meaning are the features the 1dx offers worth the $7,000 price tag. And from what people have posted, it seems like if your using a professional level camera, it's amazing. For my needs of what I'm wanting a camera to do, the 1dx might be a tad over kill when a mark4 would work just fine, but I use the 5d3 for landscape nature portraits, anything that the more pixels the better. And I use the 60D for mainly just macro and or will attach a 70-200 or the 500 being its not full frame. But shooting wildlife and sports, the 5d3 just isn't as fast as I wish it could be fps wise. The auto focus is snappy and will lock on, and 6fps isn't to shabby, but just isn't fast enough to capture small birds in flight or more of a moment happening in some sport. I do make a little money selling wildlife prints and things to do with sporting stuff, but I figured id be getting a used mark4 unless there's some place that has it new, but new is $5,000, and used range from 3-4,500. So I figure I'd be using the camera a lot I'd want something it be worth the price and last. Which the 1dx will do. Lol but this thread turned into something different so I guess I should've phrased my question better instead of being so vague.
Yeah, things went off course a tad
I think a used 1d4 will be a great value for money. I loved that camera, the only problem with it as far as I'm concerned, was the lower light tracking abillities. And that was because I had high expectations coming from a huge let down with an early 1d3 and the 1d4, new, was very expensive too.
But it had everything you expect from a 1d and is a real joy to use! And a better placement and feel of the ISO button than the 1d X
Think I shall wait on the greatest canon camera atm haha and stick with an older 1dmark3/4 or 7d
