Waiting for the wife to wake up so that I can explain why we have to get rid of her car. Will be purchased momentarily.
Don't forget to tell her about all savings that you guys will realize from not having to pay for her car's insurance premium, gas (soon at $5/gallon,) maintenance and repairs--all of which could be used towards more lenses and photo gear for you!!!
Just slip her a mickey and buy her a bus ticket ... just kidding
To be perfectly honest....she told me that if that is what I want to get it. I have been saving for a long time to finally get an upgrade to my 30D. As a Marine, my paychecks don't come close to covering the cost without saving for a while. Thanks for the laughs.
Remember, you only go around once and you being in the military, should know that life can change in an instance...go for it and dont look back !
To be honest, I think I am going to wait a bit longer. I have tried to read everything I could possibly find about the 1Dx and a few more months won't make a difference anyway. I figure I will wait and see what other reviews come out about it after people start to get their hands on it. Thoughts?
I just want to make sure that this is the right way to go, considering it will be an upgrade that will have to last me for years. There is no way that I will be able to afford another body for a while after this. I have also thought about going with the 5D Mk III and get two of them as a backup camera.
(Edited) Robert, I just noticed you have Cincinnati in your profile. I grew up there before deciding the Marine Corps was how I wanted to spend my life. Sure miss Skyline!
PhotoGunny - I got the 5D MkI in early 2006, and it is still my primary body. After that I put my $$ into my lenses. It was just under $3000, so it has cost me less than $500/year. I looked at the 5D MkII and the 7D when they came out, but they didn't really give me that much more. When the 1D x was announced I decided it was time to seriously consider upgrading. The FPS is nice, but I want the low light AF and full frame. My point? Buy the body that will carry you for years to come. Technology upgrades will come and go, but a great system will last for years. People still talk about the 5D MkI so fondly because it truly is a classic.
Now that the 5D MkIII is out, if the 1D x was $5000 +/-, I would get it in a heartbeat. I hope that the 1D x is the game changer they say it is, but I don't think you would be disappointed with the 5D MkIII to replace the 30D if the 1D X is out of your reach.
