I've been after a 1Dc for some time now. Coming from experience, would any of you recommend selling my XTi and using the cash to get one of these? Is the drop in MP too much to even consider such a trade? I need help, preferably from someone who has experience with both cameras.
The XTI is a better camera in the sense that it has much better IQ than the old 1Dc. The 1Dc is a great camera, but many of the newer cameras outshine the 1Dc. The handling of the 1Dc is pretty great, though. I had an XTI and short of the camera being tiny, it was a solid performer, the 1Dc is great because of the fast shutter, it's viewfinder and weather sealed body, but the drop in MP and the lowered ability to crop shots will make you think harder about what you include in your shots. Though I have used an XTi in the rain/snow without frying it.
Personally, I like my 1Dc but I use it less than I do the 1D2.
