Being drooling all over the place because of the 1DX announcement, as far as I'd love to buy one, I just can't justify ~7K for a hobby.
As so, I'll probably grab a 1DS3 or 1D4/3 after the prices get a little lower. I know many will appear. They always do.

So, will you do the same?


Photography is about GEAR and not talent or practice. Practice won't make you a better photographer. Expensive equipment will. =D

I will just keep my 1Ds Mark III and wait to see what the body that comes after the 1Dx will be like. After all its only a hobby for me too.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

( X ) I will not buy another camera before the 1DX is released and will probably acquire one

My name is 2nd on the list to get one from my local dealer.

I just ordered and received another 1DIV, finally found one in stock at the regular price not the inflated one.

Some will say why buy one now, my reasoning is this.
I know how good this camera is, and my other two 1DIV's are really getting up there in shutter count.

So while these were in stock I bought a new one and will sell my other 1DIV's to get a 1DX and have two great bodies with no or little shutter count. I should be set to go.

I'll prolly end up keeping both of the bodies, which are the 1d4 and 1ds3 and get the 1dx.
