I really appreciate what your doing here, but unless i'm mistaken and i could very well be, isn't f22 well into the effects of diffraction? isn't the 1dx's diffraction limiting aperture a bit smaller than the others in this test? Does that give it a bit of an advantage? Personally i doubt there is much in it in terms of IQ, but under a scope the 5dmk3 should squeak out a win. But if the camera isn't focused, isn't even there due to the conditions, or just plain isn't fast enough to get the shot everything else is meaningless, and on that accord i'm sure the 1dx get's it done. I am very surprised to read how the 1dx's focusing is either the same, or something on the order of 15% faster. That's weird as my 1dmk2 is like an alcohol dragster compared to my 5dmk3. Oh it misses from time to time, but while the 5dmk3 is (relatively) slowly changing the focus to the correct setting, the 1dmk2 just jumps right there. like it didn't adjust, it just went directly to the correct focus position. bang! Then again it's lost in low light while my 5d and 5dmk3 are much better. Thanks again for your efforts here, i bet many eyes are on this thread.
