OK, here's my dilemma. I attended Focus on Imaging yesterday in Birmingham (UK). I had the opportunity to handle a 5D MkIII and it did feel good in my hands. The specs are also more advanced than the MkII. However, the asking price is currently £2999 (approximately $4755) whereas there were new 5D MkII bodies on sale for £1300 (approximately $2060) at the Camera World stand.
So, I could have a 5DMkII now (proven and tested technology) for almost half the price of the 5DMkIII at some undefined time in the future (new technology, possible bugs to iron out). Looked at another way, I could have two 5DMkII bodies for more or less the price of one 5DMkIII body.
I had a 1Dx on preorder, which I cancelled because that is almost double again the price of the 5DMkIII and to be honest I started thinking of all the nice glass I could buy with that sort of money.
I'm not a pro sports or wildlife shooter, so a 5DMkIII or even a MkII would probably be more than adequate for my needs, if I'm totally honest with myself.
I'm tempted just to get a 5D MkII for £1300 ($2060) and see how I get on with it for a few months until the 5D MkIII and 1Dx have been out in the field, some real world reviews/comparisons come in and any teething problems are ironed out. Another factor in this decision is that I'd like a FF camera to take with me on holiday to the Far East on 12th April and wonder, even with a preorder, what the likelihood is that I'd even have a 5D MkIII in my hands by 12th April?
What would you do?
