I used a Canon 5D Mark II for years for medical photography in my office, but when the Mark II started spending more time at home than it did in the office, I knew it was time to buy another camera. That’s when I started the exhausting process of researching the differences between the Canon 5D Mark III and the Canon 1DX. I knew I wanted an upgrade from the Mark II, and long story short, I wound up owning both of them.
The Mark III and the 1IX are both very impressive machines, but they serve very different purposes, and, at least in my opinion, they are not interchangeable. Here is how I came to the decision to get both, and my recommendations about which one to get if you only want or need one of them.
