Re: Poll: which FF
In reply to bobn2, Mar 14, 2012

There are lots of threads discussing the merits of the 1D X, 5D III and D800. This thread isn't about which you want, or which is best - it's trying to discover which product options might play best for Canon. So, three questions.

1. Canon's new FF range is 1D X and 5DIII. Do you intend buying either of these (or both or more than one)? Please be honest, window shopping doesn't count.

2. If Canon introduced a 1Ds X, as the 1D X but with FF sensor made using the 60D pixel (45MP), 6FPS, for a list price of $8000, would you buy this? If so, and you had intended buying a 1D X or 5DIII, would you buy the 1Ds X instead or as well?

3. If Canon introduced a 3D, 5DIII with the 45MP sensor above, 3 FPS, otherwise as 5DIII, for a list price of $3500, would you buy this? If so, and you had intended buying a 1D X, 1Ds X or 5DIII, would you buy the 3D instead or as well?

I will not be buying the canon 5 d mark 3 or the 1 d x . I will buy the canon 1 d s x/ 1dx at 8000 dollars and 5 d x / 3 d 3500-4500 dollars . The Canon 5d3 is in my opinion too much of an incremental upgrade and does not suite the type of photography I do any better than my two Canon 5D2 bodies. If I do not hear of an announcement of a high resolution camera from Canon soon I will go forward with a pre order of two Nikon d 800's. It's still not too late for Canon - all they have to do is pre announce a high resolution camera like they did with the 1DX. - 6 months in advance of shipping. This piece of news would make me cancel my nikon d 800 pre order right away.
