This was posted on FB today and I thought it might be interesting for others to see all this gear in one place.

No doubt that is alot of gear worth hundreds of thousands. However, if you took just one of each item there it would not be nearly so impressive. I noticed that the article is saying that the 1Dx has not been released to the public yet. They must be referring to Europe as it certainly has in North America. Why would Canon hold back releasing this anywhere when it took so damn long for them to get it to market in the first place.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.

Looks like my house...

There are north of 500 1DXs in London and approx one dozen 200-400s in use. Both are getting rave reviews according to my CPS connections.

Price on the 2-4 = $12K

Serious question. Will a lot of these used items be sold as out of box sales, glass and/or cameras? I would imagine that Canon has some sort of this traveling around to some major events, but how often would you see something like this setup?
