Re: 1DX should I buy it, or stick with my 5DMK3

Thanks for all your comments, I left it open to get a wide range of views, thing is I take a full range of images, Wildlife, particularly birds and birds in flight, theatre work, (often low light but sometime bright, follow spot) studio work, portraits, some sport (rugby) some landscape, architecture etc, the odd wedding, Prom' etc..I already appreciate the new auto focus system for flying birds with a good hit rate.

I use 2 5dmks3 side by side in the theatre as a matched pair (easier to control the settings if they are both the dame body. I have a 7d for wildlife but do not like the noise once you get to 400 iso, I have been using the mk3 for wildlife and will now get rid of the 7d. I still have a 5dmk2 (mint) sitting in a box so that can go too. Wanted to end up with a smaller kit, so it seemed a good choice to go for the 1DX and keep the mk3’s. I like their smaller bodies.
Thanks for taking the time to comment.. Guy
