I find it odd that people are complaining that the 1D is delayed and that the 5DM3 was rushed to release.
Easy when the 1DX was announced in October and we are still waiting and the 5DIII is out a month after announcement. However I do understand that there is far greater market share and profits to be made on the 5DIIII and it makes the most business sense. I originally planed on getting a 1DX then the 5DIII was announced an it met most of my needs that I was looking to upgrade too, I had one pre-order until I reverted back to the decision to get a 1DX.
Would be nice to have it by wedding and sport season!
