Seriously...that's why the 1DX got delayed so many times--they needed to install robotic functionality and give the entire first batch to a robot. That's awesome.

friend of mine did order 1dx from B&H on 3/14, his order is 101989010x, wonder where he is in the line and if he will be able to get his from the 1st shipment... he is glad that B&H is huge store and they probably will get quite a few of them...My number is quite similar to that; yours is a little lower than mine, which should be on the first shipment as told by a live chat rep. Congrats to your friend!
That's great, you'll love the camera. Which lens do you have on there?50mm f/1.2.
Well...I'm in the queue!Count me queued as well!! I tried live-chatting with a fellow, but he would not give me the length of the queue after much petitioning. Is there any way we can find out where in line we are?
It does sound nice...I just dunno if I can justify the upgrade price. I think if you take the time to get the lens dialed in the Mk. I is pretty sharp.Well, I think the 16-35 was one of the main reasons they made the 27-70 have an 82mm filter threading. Many people buy the "trifecta" of 16-35, 24-70, and 70-200; so Canon makes some redundancy for this common combination. And then they assume if you have all three, then you'll have 77mm as well as 82mm filters.
And I wonder - once we've got a few thousand copies out there I bet we'll still have folks saying "it's not sharp". Also, no sharing filters with my other glass is a bummer, unless I get that 16-35...
Oh, that's interesting. I'd assume the 5D2 would be better cropped as well, as opposed to using the TC.Currently, I occasionally use the 1.4x tc with the 100-400, and not being able to autofocus does not really bother me, since I don't have a 1 series body. Most of the time I use the 1.4x tc is only with my 70-200.FWIW, I tried a comparison of the extenders on the 100-400mm vs. cropping the image (using the 7D), and with the 1.4x, I preferred the cropped image, whereas with the 2x I preferred the extender.
Canon doesn't really seem to have a set routine for using S and X. They do have the 1Ds which differentiates it from the 1D as being full frame. But I don't know why they chose an "s".I've always been under the assumption that the S indicates a higher end model. Although most would argue that the 1D serves a fundamentally different purpose (sports) than the 1Ds series (landscape, studio), one cannot argue about the price hike for the 1Ds.
I still haven't gotten an email about it, but, when I called the CPS USA guy, he said that many of the emails haven't been sent quite yet. He also said a lot of people have been calling, but that he wasn't exactly sure of what was going on; because it is the weekend, the main office is closed, so he couldn't call them to glean more information.For the moment, etto, it seems not. I haven't gotten any emails from CPS USA, and I am awaiting a reply to an email I sent to them concerning this perk.
Can you post when you get an answer about it?
