p.1 #1 · Will 1D Mark IV Price significantly when 1DX is released?


I'm new to the pro series Canon bodies and have a question:

Will the retail price ($4,999) of the Canon 1D Mark IV drop significantly after the March release of the 1DX? Is that normally what happens? I can see the price of the 5D2 is already dropping quite a bit but the 1dIV hasn't budged. Any thoughts on this? I'm sure many of you have been buying and selling D series bodies for years and understand the trends.

Also, I know there are a million threads on this issue but as a portrait & wedding photographer, should I even be purchasing the 1DIV? My #1 priority is image quality straight out of the camera. My #2 priority is the cameras focus system. I know the focus system is much better on the 1dIV but what are your thoughts on IMAGE QUALITY for outdoor portraits and low light church/ reception photos. I'm already getting the 1DX and want to buy a second body: either 1dIV or 5d2.

Thank you!

Regarding pricing of the Mark IV, ask again in 90 to 180 days and I'll have the correct answer.

I made a complete change of systems almost two years ago, I kept and still use the 5DII. I think it is a great buy now, and it was a great buy when I bought it. Portraits & weddings? Its gotta be great. I take it up to 3200 on occasion but 1600 is very good. Can't speak to the MarkIV other than it will still cost almost double.

Good hunting.
