Hilarious stuff, I love Canon Rumours, great way to finish off the day down here in Asia Land, having a good laugh. it would be even more Hilarious to find out that the chap that started this Post, uses a D800 or a D4, or a Box Brownie.
The first thing your 'casual observer' would notice is the 2x higher price of the 1D X, and then assume (correctly) that the 1D X is the superior camera. But how relevant is that? Is your average 'casual observer' going to plunk down $7K, or even $3K, on a camera? Generally, such a decision involves some research. Such research might turn up a list like this:Quote from: TDP
I think what's hard to grasp is why the 5D&6D have a bigger sensor than a 1DX; and the 7D is faster than a 5D; and the 6D has more connectivity features than a 5D or 1DX.
Maybe its just my quirky way of thinking ... but it would make more sense to me if the 7D was as it is today; the 6D (yes FPS too) was the 7D + FF sensor and connectivity; the 5D was the 6D + better/bigger sensor and low light; 1DX was the 5D + grip, processors, better sensor, FPS etc.
And of course those aren't all the bells and whistles that you could improve from one to the next, but you get the idea. You start with a model and each model gets all the features of the prior + better stuff.
Thats what I meant by casual observer ... because to me you just sorta expect a natural flow. I'm certain that isn't unique to Canon or really camera's at all and lots of brands dont exactly stair step up the line.
This post is what I would call "a pointless exercise in futility"...
Clearly, clearly, clearly, and well documented, the 1DX has the best sensor Canon offers. It doesn't have the highest resolution, but it has the best performing sensor.
My 1DX is exhibiting some sort of white residue buildup on the top dial, but it stays clean on the ridges where I touch it the most.
Sensor area is the only fair comparison for sharpness and detail, MP are a comparative distraction and causes so much confusion.
This is unsharpened OOC from a camera with no AA filter over the sensor, and two 100% crops from different areas of the photo. My two-week-old baby girl and my 100-year-old camera she's such a good helper.
What was your AF point in this image (if you used AF)?
not hard with a good FF and good glass- Amazing shot.
This was shot handheld with a G10 P&S, but I used flash to give me some contrast. Look at the light, your image has very low contrast.- Now I am totally DEPRESSED!
