Does anyone on here own a Canon EOS 1DX who does not work professionally in photography but is an enthusiest?
I get the occasional job every blue moon, but feel compelled to get a 1DX for personal use.
It is an expensive camera but by God its a damn good camera.
I ask this as I had this issue many moons ago when I wanted a 400mm plus lens for my camera and after tossing ideas ended up getting a sigma 120-400mm. Only because I didnt have $10,000 sitting around for a proper 500mm L lens. Its a nice lens but not as nice as a L canon lens. So when I wanted the 70-200mm, I opted for the best of the best and went for the 70-200mm f/2.8 mk2 IS, yeah it cost a lot, but it was worth the money. So now I am wanting to get another body and its either the 5dmk3 or the 1dx.
I figure if i get the mk3, it will never come close to the performance and build of a 1dx. I have learnt in life that sometimes it pays to go for the very best and if you have to pay it off it will always make you more happier than going second best. Anyone else see this is the case when deciding?
