What about a 1D IV? 1.3x crop, better IQ than a 7D, 10fps.
OK, not as good as the mighty 1Dx, but you'll save a lot of pennies and do you really need a super-pro level camera, or could you get away with a good-pro camera if you're not a full-on pro?
I don't really need any camera, since I only shoot for the fun of it. I guess, many others are in my predicament. ... That being said, if I decide to get a piece of machinery as complex and sophisticated as a DSLR I only want the best I can get and that is the mighty Canon 1DX.
The 1D Mark IV is not up-to-date and, as you mentioned, not as good as the mighty 1DX, that's the problem with it.
As I said before, the 1dx is brilliant at capturing fast moving action and it's great in low light...if that's what you'll use it for then go for it, if not, then stick with the 5d3 and buy more glass with $6500... The newest 300 2.8 is the same price.
That's a good idea. I like that.
Of course you would, it's only the best glass made by canon ever. Decisions decisions....
