Re: The difference..

Good points, Leping. But you should be able to get damned near the same results with the 5D2 as Adamus gets with his 1DsMKiii, no? Wouldn't that be good enough?

Agreed, though, that the D3x would be better...or at least make it easier to better shade detail...but at three times the cost.

And this makes me wonder what the point of the D3x is. Figure $10K for the D3x and a 14-24. For $15K, you can pick up a used Hassie H3D 39 and a lens, or get a new Mamiya DL28 with 2 lenses.

Here's some samples of what a Hassie H3D 39 can do...

To me, results like this would be worth the extra 5K...but that's just me.
