wow an amazing camera
upgraded from the 5DC which is also a very good camera only lacking in the AF Dept for moving subjects.
the silent shutter mode is the best for not spooking wildlife on the 5DIII
The only improvement would be faster frames per second but that is what you pay for in a 1DX
6 FPS is still pretty good especially for 22MP
I have to say when I do my part right the image quality is excellent.
I cannot fault this camera and I have used it vigorously since it was launched.
Higher FPS isn't the only thing the 1Dx better... Faster lens focus drive, much better metering, Much better sealing and construction, Dual CF cards ... list goes on. I do like the 5D3 silent shutter for weddings and events where the 1Dx shutter makes too much noise, like shooting golf.
Be invited into a tennis match to shoot between two courts at the net. Shoot a few frames with the 1Dx and see how long you last! I luckily had my 5D3 on me, promptly switching to silent shutter mode
Yup, I have not had a chance to do any tennis yet, but Polo is another sport like that. I spooked a horse with the shutter sound on the 1Dx and was asked to swap to something a bit more quiet~
