Maybe the question can be rephrased:What kind of sensor do we want in the 5DIII, the 1DX's? If so buy the 1DX.Maybe someone does not want the weight, size and 12-14 fps of 1DX but wants a normal size FF camera with the best sensor Canon has to offer.
Maybe so but there's so much griping about the 5DIII. There are many different combinations to be had, you can't please everyone. My point was that how much more does a person expect from a $3500 camera compared to a $7000 one?
How much more should we expect from the $3500 5DIII compared to the $2000-2200 5DII?
I believe a lot more (5DII had the best sensor available by the time it was introduced)
That's the thing though, people are expecting alot more. Is it because they are comparing it to the 1DX? Some are also saying that it's priced too high, like $500 too high. Compared to what though, the D800? There's no doubt the 800 has a great sensor and DR to go with it, but IMO that's not enough. I would sooner have the great AF, high ISO and 22MP than just a good sensor. So for me I find the extra 500 bucks worth it.
