When did you decide your body was the limiting factor?

When did you decide your body was the limiting factor in your system?

I'm still rocking my old 1DSMii and I am still consistenly pleased with the IQ it produces (on those occasions where I don't manage to screw something up). I love the handling, the OVF, etc.

I also subscribe to the motto "buy it once, buy it right", and so the wallet really hurts come upgrade time. My interests are in natural light, low-ISO landscape, street, and portrait work-- whenever I do upgrade, I'm, thinking I'll go for the 5DSr.

Here are my grumbles with the 1DSMii:

1. Rear LCD is nearly useless for checking focus.

2. No live view.

3. I hate sensor dust, and the 1DSmii is a magnet IMO.

4. I've acquired some great L glass, and I might get a lot more value from them with a sensor that can resolve more detail.

5. Higher usable ISO would always be welcome (I suck with a flash).

6. Can't see ISO in viewfinder.

7. No tethering.

I still love my 1DSMii and the above points honestly don't bother me that much... except better IQ from glass maybe.

Any thoughts or experiences from anyone?
