So you guys like the 5dmk3's metering better than the 1dx? i've never really found any one meter to perform much better than any other, but i do remember a few on this site really talking up the 1dx's meter as such an improvement over the 5dmk3. hmmm. yeah, they all get tricked. lately i've been using my 5dmk3 with a +2/3 exp comp. your exp comp works to 5/8ths?
You misunderstood, I overexpose on purpose, I like that for my images. And the metering is wayway better than anything I have ever tried.
Try the 5d3 with bright backlit subject and then do the same with the X, you'll notice the X is spot on and the 5d needs about 3 stops compensation.
