I know what you mean.I tried a 1DX out last month by accident when I pased by a camera store which had one in stock.Well,after trying it out,couldn't resist getting one so I sold my 1D MKIV and bought a 1DX.Really wished that I could have afforded just buying the 1DX without selling the 1D MKIV so that I could use it just in case I needed the reach factor.Guess what,what I miss more with the 1DX that the 1D MKIV had were the red focusing points,especially in low light shooting.

Yeah I miss that on my 7D also from the 40D

At least you had something close for an upgrade! I would be going 7d to 1dx so it will be a large $ upgrade for me! I have thoughts of going to a 5d3 or 1d4 next then up to the X

As much as they're tempting, they're just too large and heavy for wedding work; at least for me.

Robert.. it does not feel much different that the MKIV to me in terms of weight and size.. it actually feels pretty good........Until you slap on a bracket, flash, and a 70-200:lol:

What happen to your 1DMKIV? Did you sell and replace with another 5DMKIII? I'm keep debating if I should trade my 1DMKIV for another 5DMKIII.

Yes. I Traded a person on this board. He had a new one and mine was under 20K on the count. It just made sense for us because my wife is my 2nd and its just so much easier to get her the camera settings if she gets stumped, swap lens, ect. ect.. MKIV is such a great camera but we are indoors 80% of the time for the work we do so ISo and low light performance is critical. MKIV and 5D3 are so close until you get to servo use in low light,,5D3 wins here. Both AF systems have the plus' and negatives but overall, it just made things easier for us to have matching bodies.

Mike, as I was reading that I started to wonder why you were talking about your 2nd marriage?
Interested to hear your thoughts Mike but 1Dx is out of my price range.

Traded mine because my wife is new at this, she's my 2nd shooter, and its just easier through out the day to tell her the settings when she gets stumped. Really made a difference for us. Plus the 5D3s locked a bit better in low light in one shot but servo was the big deal changer for me. Servo is awesome on the 5D3 in poor light... it hits,, the MkIV was terrible in servo in low light. I used one shot with it. Its really nice to be able to use servo in low light and know its going to hit.

That being said.

I miss the heck out of that MKIV. I have regrets trading it away now, especially after i tested the 1Dx. I liked the 1.3 crop factor and i loved it for sports and wildlife. But it was a business decision we made so i have to live with it. I may wait until these MKIV's drop below 3K and get another one. I really liked the camera and was very disappointed with the 1Dx in comparison, especially after it was compared against the 5D3. We have 2 5D3's and kept one of the 5D2's because we need 3 cameras........Hind sight being better than fore sight..... i would have kept the MKIV. In my eyes, It a perfect companion for the 5D3.

i hear ya Mike~ anyone i have my 1d too ( hell, any of em, 1d2, 1d2n, 1d3, or 1d4, i've about had em all! ) they always look at it crazy like it's from another planet. "how do i adjust this thing?" is usually the look that overwhelmes their face. Since i've shot 1d's for so long, i'm used to both, but it WOULD make life easier having the same body on each arm. same settings, same custom functions, etc.

I just don't think i'd miss my 1d4, who knows. I keep it b/c i got a killer deal on it, and occasionally someone will want me to shoot something 'sporty' (and i sold my 7d) so it just kinda sticks around. It's also nice to be able to have both FF and 1.3X on your shoulder in case you need more reach, or more wide.

it's all paid off, so that stuff doesn't cross my mind much anymore. now it's just about lens and TALENT envy... We'll see about next season though ;)

my setup now ; should've waited until my 5d2 grip arrived (but the the beater t1i just sold, and the 7d will be sold tonight)

You will like the 1dx regardless. It's a great camera. I shoot along my partnet who has a 1dx and it does lock af in darkness. :)

However if you have quiet churches, you will miss the 5d3 silence shutter.
For wedding photography, the 5d3 is all you need :)

i haven't came across something the 5d3 couldn't handle. It's usually user error if anything ;)
