I've mulled over buying the 1dx... so cost isn't that much of an issue... but I'm really happy with my 5D mkiii... really happy with it. Sure there could be better... but I'm a happy camper.

Looks like he learned his group posing setup at the police lineup school of photography.
I have used two useful techniques for groups. First is the simple close your eyes and countdown to zero. More complicated involves a balloon. The balloon trick I developed for public ("street") photography, but it works with a posed group.
I was using my 70-200mm today for softball... it would have been tough to limit myself to only 200mm... so I think I may be keeping the lens even if I do elect to upgrade to the 200 f2...
My 6yrs got picked as top five swimmers in her class. She will be competing tomorrow with other teams. Can't wait to shoot with my 1DX. The 400mm will be mounted on 5D III this time. Wish I have another 1DX...
Finally, I got a chance playing with this lens for about 4hrs. Took over 700 photos with 1DX. My final verdict is this lens going to stay in my bag.
In Ai servo, keeper rate is little less compared to f2.8 - 70-200 f2.8 and 400mm f2.8. However, IQ on the keepers is AWESOME. Let me say that again.....FREAKEN AWESOME

You've got that all wrong. PM me and we'll arrange a swap. I'll send you a really nice bat and you send me the 70-200. You'll find that your softball is much improved if you use the right gear!
Wish I have another 1DX...
...and Christmas is just around the corner
I think I'm done for 2014
I am getting 70-200 f2.8 II for the same price as the following set 100 f2.8L, 135 f2 and 200 f2.8. I currently own a 60D and am planning to purchase the 7DII once it is available here in my country. What do you think is a better buy - the zoom or the set of primes? I love to shoot my kid (a very active toddler, her ballet recitals, outdoor sports, etc) and wildlife.
Would love to get opinion from folks here.
I use my 100L primarily for product photography, at f8.
My 100L is also sharper than my 70-200.
Get the 70-200mm f2.8L IS II. The IQ is on the level of the primes and AF of this lens is faster than all of them. I have the 100L and it is a little sharper than the 70-200mm but not much. I used the 100L mostly for macro, because for portrait the 70-200 is on par and gives me flexibility
