Its not for the size of it...

And I already have a 5D mk III...

I'm more interested in it than the X...

Of course money IS an object here and I can only shoot one body at a time which precludes me buying one but I still do want one. Jhst don't know why. .....

Better know what you plan to shoot with it. 5D3 is better for some uses.

Just after I got my 5D3 a friend borrowed it for half an hour while I used his 4 month old 1D4. Before the end of the day he asked me if I wanted to swap bodies with no money involved. I know I should of done, then sold the 1D4 and got another 5D3, but I decided to keep with my 5D3 and have been more than happy with my decision.

I would love to have a 1D4 as well as my 5D3 but not instead of. I know not everybody will agree, but it was the right decision for me.

I'd like one for the f8 AF and FPS speed. Great for BIF shots. Gotta save the pennies, though.

Hedonistic Cycle. We seek happiness by creating new stimulus in buying new products even though it is a never ending cycle resulting in a net zero increase in satisfaction.

I agree with everything you said except the "new products" part since its older than my 5D3 is....

I don't really need the FPS because I RARELY shoot anything other than single frame.....

Thanks!

Just buy one of each body, and cycle through to a "new" one about every 3 months. :D

I don't see it suggested here, but the 1.3x crop is a bonus vs. the 1Dx or 5DIII(for sports/wildlife).

Totally agree I tried ff with a 1Dsii but missed the crop reach of my 7D so sold it within a month. When A good mk4 came up for sale I thought give it a try and I love it. IQ is stunning, the extra frames per second are noticeable over the 7D when needed, the battery life is crazy, it feels great in the hand, but most of all the x 1.3 crop is perfect even with my max 300mm reach lens for sport and wildlife.

My 7D is now my wide angle kit 8mm Samyang and 10-22mm Canon
1Dmk4 24-105 and 95% 70-300L

No regrets for not selling my 7D as well and getting the 5Diii, a 2 body set up comes in very useful.

That's what is really comes down to. It doesn't matter what everyone else thinks or uses, so much as what works best for you.

I sold my 1D4..which was an excellent camera..last year to get a 5DIII. I have no regrets, it was the best decision for me. Now if $$$ were no object, I would have kept the 1D4. I had zero complaints about that body.

Sometimes..we just have to decide, and just pick what works best for us.

The 1DMIV is the best camera I have used, but have not shot the 5DIII. I have the 5Dc and the 1DsMII and while I like them for landscapes and portraits, full frame has not impressed me for sports and birds in flight. The 1DMIV handles both of these with ease. It also does landscapes and portraits well as well!
If I had to reduce down to one camera it would be the 1DMIV.

I tried the whole poverty/monk/shaved head/Tibet thing. I kept getting rid of one or two possessions a month until I had only my tattered robe and a rope belt. Did nothing for me. I was still unhappy. Better to be unhappy with too much stuff than unhappy with nothing.
