I did preorder 1Dx, gps receiver for it and that new lens, for all paid in full, and I will seriously get my money and just spend it on something else. I am nit a pro, photography is not my main source of income so if that is what canon wants to play they will loose me as a customer until they get their crap together. I dont beleive this, spent fortune on lenses and bodies, and this is what I get for being loyal customer.
Yes, I also preordered the 1D X, and yes, I'm frustrated by the delays. But oddly enough, for some unfathomable reason, the fact that I don't have a 1D X in my hands doesn't make the images captured with my 5DII, 7D, and 'fortune in lenses' suddenly suck. Go figure.
I am not saying that my old gear all of a sudden sucks or is no good, I am just disapointed. If they preanounce something and they dont deliver and constantly keep delying it just says something about them. See canon acheived great deal of fame with their 5D mark ii, now they want to proffit on it, is it a right strategy? Well it certainly making our comunity upset and disapointed. This 5d mark iii noise did not make it any better for them, dont get me wrong, after all its their business and I am just one of the customers. Yes they holding me hostage because I have so many lenses but my patience is running out.
I am going to euro soccer cup in June, less than 40 days from now will be there, was so hoping to use this new 1Dx in my journey as I will be close to the players and the game and now all of this is in limbo. Canon, you suck
if I knew I would plan it so differently
