Finally able to get my own recently.

Rented and borrowed in the past, but nothing is like owning one yourself. Thanks to the mirrorless "brigade" some photographers have started to let their pro DSLR's go, and thus prices have been coming down on these glorious beasts.

Their decision, my gain.

For critical/decisive moment work, pro level DSLR's like the 1DX are still my #1 pick. Yet, the 1DX  is so versatile I'm starting to use it for many other tasks as well. It's still not my go too Landscape camera, but I'm not passing up a great landscape shot if the opportunity presents itself (like telephoto landscapes for example).

The newer gen Mark II/III cameras have improved incrementally, but the cost increase over the 1DX will really test your decision process of need vs. want. I happen to think that the beyond the 1DX is the point of rapidly diminishing returns, but it's really a personal decision for everyone to make for themselves.

What a fantastic camera!

(Had a chance to grab a 1Ds Mark III lately too, it was too affordable to pass up!)
