I think you guys are severly underestimating the amount some people spend on gear.
Mother of god that's an insane amount of cash to have tied up. Frankly unless I was a highly paid pro photog I wouldn't drop that kind of cash even if I had it to spend. I've actually thought about getting a used 1D Mark III as an upgrade to my Rebel Xti. Same resolution but far faster burst speeds for sports and airshows. I've also been considering a 7D funny thing is a 7D seems to outpace a 1D Mark III in almost every respect but is less to buy even buying brand new 7D vs used 1D Mark III
Any thoughts on that frink?
