Re: 1DX for amateur

Check out the many used 1D Mark III and Mark IV's. They'll give you almost everything a 1DX will give you. The Canon used market is wonderful for amateurs right now.

If it's too much to handle, you saved some money. If it's good enough, you also saved some money. If you find that you need the 1DX's features, sell it and buy one.

I bought an original 1D when they first came out. I switched on AI-Servo, selected the center focus point, and started taking basketball shots I'd never gotten before. It didn't take any effort to figure it out.
