->> I would like an opinion on those who have shot with both of these camera bodies. I'm lookin to upgrade to the best possible camera. I currently shoot with a Canon Mark lll which I love but wonder both from price and quality should I go with Mark IV or X.

->> X. Slam Dunk. I used one for 2 weeks in May and they finally got it right. FINALLY. Makes the Mark IV look like an embarrassing expensive thing that holds memory cards.

Save your pennies. Mow some lawns. Rob some banks. Wait for the X. That is what I am doing.

The 1DX also has better low light AF according to accounts of 5D3 users (similar AF system). If you plan on getting the 600ex flashes and want to take advantage of all their features you need a 1DX or 5D3 to do so. Older bodies have their flash sync speed cut by one stop and no HSS on off camera units in radio mode.

If you find yourself in FL limited situations a lot and want to put more pixels on target then the 1D4 will offer the increased pixel density you need plus the ability to AF at F8 if using the TC's on 4/5.6 lenses.

I'm looking at the 1DX as a companion body to my 1D4 to have the best of both.

->> Get the X. Period. Always get the latest technology if you can and always try to stay ahead of the pack!

Brad, those are some harsh words towards the Mark IV! LOL! I now have two Mark IV's for sale!!!
