Hows about this, buy a 1DX and rent when i need a big lens? Thing is, buying any big white is an investment. They just dont loose their value. Cameras yes, lens no. Maybe this is expanding a bit but theres an "x" factor about a pro body shot. I really dont know why but ive had a 5D a 7D and others with the same pixels but for a reason i dont know, when i look at my pro body shots they always have a wow factor. Know what i mean, as if theres something ealse other than spec sheets going on. A combination of multiple small factors that raises the bar. You know what i mean. Therefore i have a decision, camera or lens.
