5DMKIII and Lens vs. 1DX - Need advice!!!!
11 months ago

Hi All,

I have a choice according to my budget director and need some honest advice based on my needs. I like to shoot kitesurfing / kiteboarding. At times I'm in the water, always in sand. I have a 70-200 f/2.8 USM IS II now that I can use.

1. I can buy a 1DX

2. I can buy a 5DMKIII and a EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM

Do I take one or two???

I have to do this by Friday.....  I'm really torn.  Need advice here and some reasoning based on first hand acumen. It seems both options have advantages.  I'M REALLY TORN HERE!!!

Best regards,

TV
