the force is strong within them, I feel drawn resistance is futile.

What is that you are saying master Yoda(s),

"You have the power, now use it"

and lets us add

"Welcome back to the light you have been lost in the darkness far too long"


I Just returned from the camera store,........

I really have to stop reading all those posts by you and all the other 1DX owners not mentioned in the header(Too many names to fit in).

That's a great combo- congrats! And personally, I don't think that's overindulging by any means. It's when you come home with multiple boxes that contain lenses packed in hard cases that you might have to deal with a momentary twinge of guilt. But fear not, opening those cases should alleviate that in short order

Yipeee......I respect a man who can resist for so long, but when he finally caves in, the flood gates open and he goes for the kill........the best.

Let not your Nikon and alternative friends spoil your feast......that 1DX and 70-200 IS II are the best gears today anywhere, and they are in your hands now.

Add one or two of the Mark II superteles and you are in hog heaven . Actually, I have been mightily impressed with the 24-70mm Mark II for a walk-around wide to short tele zoomlens.

Robert, I must remind you about one last chance Nikon has to upstage Canon with lenses.......and that is 800VR. If they blow it there, the game is over.....then you might as well sell all Nikon bodies (and lenses) you've got left.

Robert, now we want you to get serious again with Canon gears:

(1) Have you managed to get the Pipe ? You should know that without it, no Canon super collection may be considered complete.
(2) 200-400L is coming presently......be ready with your credit card.
(3) 400 DO MKII is a distinct possibility later this year or in 2014......that lens is a must-to-have for all advanced collectors.
(4) The monster resolution camera is at our doorstep too: "1DY" they call it, and it has 42 Mp in the FF mode.

Peter it all started me thinking with your quote from Lars 1DX thread.

"Remember, that will be a very special day for your niece, and her uncle Robert must not disappoint with gears which are less than the best. Remember, you will not get a second chance to shoot your niece's wedding. Make it right the first time, Robert."

The landscape shooting of the wandering lost - Canikon. D800E, 5D MKII.
The quandary - spend a bunch for needed Nikon AF glass on a camera I use for landscapes using MF lenses or get a camera that addresses shortcomings of 5D MKII ( 1DX- top notch AF, high FPS, clean images above ISO 3200)

Smaller wad, Canadian CPS Gold lightens the load (Thanks to Peter and Jim's continuous suggestions to join)

Or a 200-400. - The 24-70 MKII I'm impressed too.

They already did. What was it $18000 or some god awful amount. The only Nikon glass I have are lenses that Canon currently has no direct equivalent for. I mainly use MF alts on the D800E.

That would make Peter's previous statement come to pass.

I did, I kneeled before Father's Stan, Peter,Jim, Lars confessed my transgressions and they said your penance is pray for forgiveness, stop running away from your written vows then be an angel and build a home alter and place on it a holy trinity of 1DX,70-200 MKII, and 24-70MKII. Then we will all celebrate and drink from the chalice.



At the end of the day, the posts the Jedi Masters made about the 1DX/5D MKIII, reading various reviews, and my experience shooting the D800E and 5D MKII kept me coming to the conclusion that the best solution for myself is a 1DX.

For my niece's wedding they decided it is very casual, no suits or ties, no formal posing, and 1/3 of the guests are kids. They want the photography to reflect the casualness of the event as it unfolds.

Mercy was shown by Kwannon because on top of the CPS PricingDiscount I also recieved the additional savings of current Canadian sale discount on the both the camera and lens.
