This week im gonna have the camera, but i still can undo the purchase.

Why? Well, because of this:


Its worrying me.... Im an amateur, and its a lot of money, and for this price, it must be a perfect tool for me (for less money too lol, it has to be good anyways)

If the 1DX body alone is a financial issue don't do it.

A prime 2.8 300mm or 400mm can cost $6,000 to $10,000 just for the one lens.

If you're not shooting sports and you don't need a sealed camera get a 5DMIII

If you want to shoot sports.... get a 7D. If you like the 8fps and feel you need more bump up to the 1DX or the next gen of such when you feel the cost is worth the extra DR, IQ and FPS.

A 7D with a 70-200 and 17-55 will bring you in at less of the cost than the 1DX body alone and you've even got a built in flash.

The 7D offers pretty good quality if you learn how to use it.





It's an option.... That's all... Just an option!
