1D-X Could it be the flop of the decade?
Oct 22, 2011

I was wondering if anyone else thought the 1D X might be the flop of the decade?

Expensive to start. With growing economic uncertainty and serious competition from other manufactures being a concern, what about the following?

It's full frame, so sports shooters will lose a little "zoom" of the APS-H 1.3X cameras.
It's lower MP than the 1Ds Mk3 and 5D Mk2.
Will people upgrade to a lower MP camera.

It seems at the moment to be an expensive camera that doesn't know where it is at?

Not a studio camera, not a landscape camera, sports camera without the crop factor?

Just pondering, it will probably have excellent quality and low light abilities, but there must be a higher MP camera coming at a much cheaper price.
