Awesome picture, yep 1dx is a great camera, I can only dream of what it’s like with the 500mm lens, unfortunately I sold a kidney to get the 1dx so no chance of ever getting that lens, unless they can bypass my other kidney altogether ߘ
Are you sure? When I worked I was on a pretty low income (sub £20K) and for the last 5 years I get so little I don't even qualify for income tax! So after I lost my job my 1D4 turned into a 1DX, my 300 F4 LI S became a 300 F2.8 L IS, the 17-40 became as 16-35 F4 L IS, the 24-105 magicked into a 24-70 F2.8 L Mk2, the well used 600 F4 L IS became a mintish 800 F5.6 L IS + a 100-400 Mk2 and a 7D2 appeared from somewhere - oh yes one of my Gitzo tripods got upgraded too. Unfortunately the 70-200 F2.8 L IS had to go - but I wasn't using much anyway.
Yes I was VERY lucky on prices! But I was patient, waited and only bought when the price was right for me - incidentally the 800 F5.6 and 300 F2.8 lenses were used all the rest were brand new.
Just funning around but, honestly, all the above is true.
Be patient, save, organise your finances properly and relentlessly hunt down the best prices - then anything in the EOS system is achievable, if you REALLY want it
