There is a difference between a car and a mountain bike. You can ride either, but one is fast and luxurious; the other you can carry. Which one to get? Hmm... Let me ask the forum...

There is a difference between sports and portraits. One needs a long reach; the other needs a shallow DOF, but you can shoot with either camera. Which one to get? Well, the answer is actually very logical and simple: decide what your primary goal is, sports or portraits.

Sports are not really FL limit as you always can find longer lens (unlike wildlife especially birding). It's basically no issue for those switched from 1D4/1D3 to 1DX. Instead of using 300L, now those sports PJs use 400L or 500L. In other side, they get wider angle when players running close, and of course better IQ especially in low light.
