I usually say if you see me without the 1d X, it wasn't me. It goes everywhere I go, even if it's a trip to the grocery store, and why not ?

More love for the Odins. Strongly back-lit subjects always threw the infrared Canon flash triggering off, but with the Odins, shooting straight into the sun is no problem.
This is far from a great shot, but I love the convenience of being able to adjust the backlight and fill in groups independently, right at the camera, without having to manually re-adjust the flashes. It's a great way to make an otherwise boring shot not quite as boring
1dX 24mm f1.4 L II@ f4. Light Quadra in a 70cm Deep Octa.
That photo looks very nice, clean, and sharp. Well done.
If the 100 L and the 135 and all the nikons survive the heat, then this will too. "Shameless marketing" is much easier to believe.
Auric Goldfinger had his painted in 24 carat gold
It wasn't lenses he painted in 24 carat gold but beautiful bodies
It's face-detection with phase AF. I find that it works pretty for tracking a person moving through a group. I have a Servo setting for 'people/events' and I use iTR for that, but not for my wildlife/birds setting. Note that for iTR to work, you've got to be in 61-point auto selection more for the AF point selection.
Whilst the IQ is a treat, the thing I find most noticeably pleasing is the handling/weight. The old one was heavy and felt not as 'balanced'.
I see from your signature you have very nice lenses that cover the 24-70 range more or less. Are you sure you need it and that you will not feel strange/bad/guilty (whatever) if you do not use your prime lenses ?It's great no doubt, but I have to pay 3650 USD to get one, so I simply have to live vicariously through the people who own it
Just start saving up. I sold my Mark I on Craig's List for 1200 so the Mark II only ended up costing me 1k.
Yeah, only have no mk1 to sell. I was going to sacrfice my 24 f1.4 for it, but I just can't sell that hunk of glass, it's just too awesome iin a way the 24-70 couldn't be. So I'm starting from scratch
Unless you need it for landscapes and do not want to change lenses in the cold
