Well, I wouldn't have expected it on the 5D3, but i'm still shocked it wasn't on the 1DX.
Depending on how many pre-orders they get for the 5D3 (and how many cancel their 1DX pre-order), maybe they'll consider adding it to the 1DX before launch?
(or might we see it on the 7D2?)
I can't imagine BIF shooter going back to a 7DII from a 1D4
Ditto. The 1D IV is still pretty much king for BIF w/ TC's. I would love to get a 1D X, but lack of f/8...and the fact that a much cheaper used 1D IV would have it, pretty much answers the question for me.
If i could get a 7D2 at 18-24MP aps-c, 10fps, the 41pt af from the 1d4, but most importantly the f/8 point, and if the IQ of that was as good as the 1D4 (after a few more years of tech research, it's possible), i'd see it as an upgrade from a 1d4.
But yeah, at the moment the 1d4 is an upgrade from the 7d, i'd still be interested in getting one if i could afford it...
