Interesting how many people have finally taken the plunge to buy a cheap 5D2, and are like kids in a candy shop with the results they're getting.
What people are forgetting, is this is a 3 year old camera - and i've been getting these results for 3 years.
I had no hesitation in getting a second 5D2 body whilst the prices are cheap - as i've always said, my only gripe with this camera has been the AF. I just wish all 9 focus points were AF, and reliable.
The reality is, i will not be able to afford a 1DX at it's release price, nor probably for a year after.
As for a 5D3 - i could upgrade both bodies upon release and take the hit on selling my 5D2's, but wouldn't do it just to get 30mp's. Better AF and a second CF card slot would make it worthwhile, and an extra stop of ISO would also be nice. But otherwise, i'm more than happy with my 21mp and could afford to drop to 18mp for the benefits a 1DX would bring. Maybe a 1DX and the new power G series as a back up?
Mmmm, that's an option i hadn't considered before - i'm off to reconsider my options
Happy New Year every one
