If I couldn't shoot RAW, I might not shoot at all.

Not true, at least not for me. To me, IQ is always the most important aspect of photography, bells & whistles & handling convenience etc. less so. So, while I love the feature set and AF of the 1-series, in my case, I'd happily give up my 1DmkIV to keep only my 5DmkII. YMMV.

I love my 1D2 but i can live with my 5D only.
I love FF but i could live with a 1.3X.

The only think i cannot live without is RAW.
This is a must for a detailed and cared photograph, specially in high iso.

RAW every time.

THE biggest difference from film, that and user selectable ISO.

To be able to capture a scene with mixed lighting and reprocess a RAW file so you can easily and quickly combine different colour temperatures and selectively sharpen is an utter godsend.

Raw everytime
100% viewfinder
1 series (handling, weight balance, integrated grip, robustness, fast blackout shutter, etc)
FullFrame of course !

Give me this with 36mp and I buy one in a heartbrake !

Clearly Raw at this point for me.Then full-frame and live view. And then I have this urge for the 1D-series. It would also be a weird world without Manual exposure. And....

Well, come to think of it, a flip-out LCD and video is the only things I can do without when it comes to enjoying taking photos.

Manual exposure, but there are a few others I'd take (RAW as a must-have, self-cleaning sensor, microadjust as strong nice-to-haves)

I love self-cleaning sensor after two years with 5D mk I, it was horrible body in terms of dust. Canon might ask vacuum cleaner company to design it?

Owned a 1Ds, went to a 5D without a single solitary pang. Had a 1Ds3, went back to my 5D's, miss the camera for its exceptional sensor, LV, battery life, MA and ergonomics but not the size, weight, buffer or lack of C mode.

Well, I voted FF because thats the format I grew up with. But you totally omitted image stabilization which has been the biggest advancement to my photography (other then digital) since I started. Sharp, hand-held images, freedom from tripods, spontaneity, chasing wildlife, candid portraits, I won't buy another lens that doesn't have IS!

I have to say I also have and use a 5Dll and like the lower weight and profile when I don't want to carry the 1DlV, the IQ on it is one of the best on either Canon or Nikon bodies. But when I want to use long glass I use the 1DlV.

I was not going to vote as many of the items mentioned are super nice to have and it was hard to pick just one.

Then I read this thread : http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1081635

Microadjustements it is. Otherwise at least 1 of my lenses would have very limited use.
