Upload & Sell: On
In my constant thirst to upgrade and get better at photography, I`ve managed to get a 1D3 for a really really low price. I`ve gone back to do some BIF photography, and I really like it for that. There are two things that I really dislike though.
1. The LCD
I can get past the crappy LCD, but not really the 10MP. I shoot mostly small birds, and my main lens now is the 400 DO + 1.4x III or 2.0x III. I love the DO, light, long, and really great IQ in my eyes. I came from the 500 f4 IS V1, and I have to say that I really like the DO in the short week that Ive had it. Lovely.
I currently have a `weird` camera system. The 1D3, the 70D, and 5Dc. I could sell those three bodies and my Sigma 18-35 and a Tokina 11-16 and have enough to buy what I think would be enough cash to get me into a 1D4 and a few lenses. I hate having 3 different batteries, 3 different charger, and 2 different types of memory cards. I would really like to streamline everything.
I use the 5D for portraits (baby), the 70D for far far away stuff, and 1D for anything that moves. I like the 70D, but the AF still isn`t as good as the 1D3 in my eyes and doesn`t AF at F8 either.
So my plan would be the following (I already have the primes):
1D4 (Yes, only 1 body, I don't do anything critical or get paid for this)
24-70 V1 (to replace the 18-35)
1.4 and 2.0 TC's
I don`t have much $$ to get anything else right now, but a 70-200 would probably on the list after I get a 1D4.
