Ty Harper Posted September 18, 2016 Share Posted September 18, 2016 There's a few used 1DC I'm seeing going for about $3800. Should I... Sell my 5D MKIII and pay the difference on a 1DC? I already have a ton of CF cards and my lenses are all Canon (except for a Nikon 35-70mm) + I'm used to the large file workflow. The lack of DPAF and other features is frustrating but I don't see myself ever being able to justify buying something like a 1DX II. I also think as far as long term investments go, a 1DC is fairly future-proof and it's scarcity amongst documentarians (compared to other popular DSLRs) will likely make it a unique vintage look to have in your arsenal moving forward (am I wrong about this?). Keep my 5D MKIII and just buy an A7S II? The A7S II seems like the practical option but I'm a fan of the Canon out the box look (I'm a documentarian first so I'd rather focus on story than worry about becoming a better color grader) so I'm not really looking forward to constantly having to color match. Thoughts? Anything I'm not taking into consideration? Now that it's discontinued do you think the 1DC price will drop or rise? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
