Have my eye on both the 5DSR and the 1DX II.

Both, though, have been out, what, a few years?

What's the likely release cycle on these things? I'd hate to purchase one and see a successor released next month or two.

Anyone in a similar boat? What are your thoughts?

5DS(R) is cheap right now. The 5DS and 5DSR can both be found at great prices on ebay right now if you're OK with a grey market import. I got a 5DS for $1240. I think the R is about $300 more.

1,240$ for a 5DS with Canon's best image files must be the best value offer in the camera industry right now on a pure picture iq/$ ratio (I'd still wait however, these offers will still be around for Christmas).
