given the two bodies, with standard extras (batteries, charger etc) with in a couple of hundred dollars (1D more than 5D) whats everyone's choice of purchase?
these are both used but no where near abused...
I will be making this same decision for myself within the next year. But I think you may be misled concerning the "going rates" for these cameras on the used market. A 1Dx in good condition can be had for $2,200. I have never seen a used 5D4 for that low of a price.
If you are seriously considering making a purchase, you may want to check around more and get more familiar with the true market prices of these cameras. Check out our forum's classifieds, and Fred Miranda's classified section, as well as completed listings on eBay, Amazon, etc, etc, etc. Used prices here on POTN tend to be higher than they are elsewhere, so keep that in mind. Becoming an educated consumer could save you hundreds and hundreds of dollars.
To answer your original question, I would much rather have a 5D4 than a 1Dx ....... it's far more capable in every way that matters to me. But the 5D4 costs so much more than a 1Dx that when it comes time to buy, I think I will have to settle for the 1Dx.
"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
