Better of buying something like a 6D and a solid L lens.

Edit: Just saw I'm like 19 pages late to this party.

I am a bit late too!

I changed from the 1D4 to the 1DX and found it to be a significant upgrade, especially the AF and high ISO.
I doubt many here are poorer than me and if I can have these toys then most of you can. It is only a matter of budgeting and being sensible with money. I do hunt far and wide for the best prices - but on my income you have to! Still if I can afford a 1DX and 5 L lenses (up to 800mm) to put on it then others can too - if they REALLY want one.

Rule of thumb if you can afford it, and you want it, and you will use it, then go for it!

w/ the 1d4 + more glass, you're still not making money. i don't see how that changes anything

I could see why a 1D4 and more glass could be a better option. You're still getting the high ISO performance and AF speed you want while also being able to get a few lens for different uses vs having a 1DX with the same pros but being constrained to one lens to do everything on it.

The camera is just a tool - it is not responsible for the picture.

agreed... his thought is not much of an improvement for almost double cost.... where i could get 1dm4 and 70-200 is mk ii vs just 1dx

yeah... only thing i would like is 70- 200 2.8 is mk ii and could still get 1dx and that lens as i have 24-105 / 50 1.8 / 85 1.8.... ithink i could do with that... get a ff top sports beast and only lens other than 70-200 would be sigma 18-35 1.8....

think im still sold on 1dx.. he can pick on me....
