    How many of you will buy the 1D C with its present level of specs if it is offered at 10K USD?

    Yes, price it at FS700 levels and I might be in.
    $15k is madness.

    Oh, one other thing. Like every other European and PAL user on this planet:
    We will not buy this camera until they add proper 25p support!

    I don't have a simple answer. I buy cameras based on projected need and available funds. I bought the MKII to get me through film school and to learn cinematography. I shot short films with it and some commercial projects. I bought the MKIII to replace the MKII as it is better in all aspects for shorts and commercials and is worthy of shooting a short teaser for the feature I have in development. For my current needs the 1D C is overkill and exceeds my budget. However when I get funding for the feature 2 of these bad boys are on my radar and with funding in place I wouldn't have a problem paying 15k for each of them even though I think they're overpriced. The 1D C is a specialist tool for feature film acquisition and in that context it is worth it but for most tasks the 5D MKIII is very capable.

    Yeah, $8k is about the most i can afford. For that price, i'd even take the C300. I probably don't need 4k, and the images coming from the C300 are really nice. I'd probably enjoy it more than the FS700 at the same price. Keep the 1D C priced higher, drop the C300 and i'd be happy!

    Yes, I think I would (I'm seriously considering it anyway, if it drops at $12k street price).

    Ticks all the boxes for my work (mainly nature/landscape.... stills and motion).

    Small, lightweight, high DR, good codec, low light, large sensor, 4K option, 1080/60p... and, of course, an amazing still camera.

    My only gripes... 1080p is 4:2:0 and, most importantly, no 4K/25P (if they don't change that, they don't get my money.. simple). I'd love a RAW option and more overcrank modes... So will sit back for a while until the FS700 4K details are out (I don't need to shoot anything major until October).

    But, overall, I think the 1D-C is a really great product that people are misjudging because it is in a DSLR box. If this was in a stripped down C300 body, people would hail it as the 2nd coming.

    No 25p is a pretty stupid omission especially given that just about every camera including Canons other offerings do 25p and more than half of the world watches 25p content.

    Hopefully, they will get the message when they don't sell one unit in PAL land.
