There was a long delay but the Canon EOS-1D X has finally arrived. Has it been worth the wait? Find out in our Canon 1D X review
Canon EOS 1D X – Value for Money
Given the £5,299 body-only asking price for the EOS-1D X it’s undeniably a huge expense. If you were to compare this cost with the price of the EOS-1D Mark IV at the time of its launch you’d find that the prices are identical.
Surely the question to answer here is: are you getting more for your money with the EOS-1D X? Consider the fact the EOS-1D X is jack of all trades in the way it offers an ideal balance between resolution and high-speed, and yes you are. The EOS-1D Mark IV might give you a bit more reach with its 1.3x crop factor but the 1D X’s performance and image quality is superior, particularly at high ISOs. There’s no denying the fact it won’t meet everyone’s budget but if you’re a pro that regularly makes money from your photography, it’s up there as the best that money can buy.
