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...Show more →
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.
