Just love the af locks on. Exposure seems more accurate. The raws definitely have more latitude. If you pull the shadows too much in the 5d, the banding is apparent and the 1d files gives you more. What was nice was not the burst but how accurate it was. Caught so many more moments of the active kids.

So when will u place the order???   ;)

Probably this week. Going on vacation and not sure if I should pull the trigger or wait till I get back. I really want it but  was thinking of getting a few more lenses to my arsenel like the new 16-35, 17mm tse, 8-15 fisheye, 50mm 1.4 sigma.

Hmmm - tough call.

Yeah the 1dx is awesome but if I move on the lenses I will be pretty set fo awhile and probably wait till a 1d whatever or 5d4 comes out. But like I said the 1d just has so many features that complement my 5d.

I wish the next 1d body will have an option to order with no built in grip
It's the single deal breaker for me I don't want a house brick these days but I want the performance

Thats part of my hesitation. Would pay more to have the feature/sensor in a 5d body with the grip option.

I am in the same boat. I am bringing my 5d3, 24-70 2.8 II, 35mm 1.4, 600ex, 70-300L (only one day where I will need the reach. May bring the 16-35 also. I am going on a Disney cruise with a large group and then all the WDW parks. I know the 24-70 should cover most of that I still find myself researching the sony alpha a6000 with lenses, SL1 with my lenses, Canon G1x Mark ii, etc. I just think in the end if you don't bring your best for some of the more photogenic places you are going then where do you bring it that's new? Anyone else in this boat? If so what did you do?

This Blue Jay was the main reason I said could the 5d track that? I know its not any award winning photo but it is good to me especially in a burst you don't know you have it like that till playback.

So, what is the verdict KKCFamilyman?

He has been smitten - there is no cure. He simply has to get one for himself!
Heavily so want it.

Really want it but have decisions like get it or

16-35f4
Sigma 50mm 1.4
More backdrops
The new 1-400 when it drops

So really really tempted.

Gotta look at the images but the af, shutter lag and burst was just a joy and it was like the first time I did a burst of shots in my first dslr. Will let you know how the final images came out.

You might as well change your signature to 1DX & 5D III ;)

I just sold my 16-35 II + 50L, I have almost $3000 cash in hand - more L or 1DX ::)  ::)
Seriously considering it. Well see when I switch back tommorrow if I feel
I missed anything from the 1d.

Just an awesome camera. Iso is a stop better. Being able to control iso, shutter and aperture values so it does not drop below them is awesome. The burst af is just amazing, caught more expressions that i feel I would normally miss since its so fast.

Do not like on/off switch, drive and a few buttons are different from 5d3 so just need to get used to it.
Meter is on right in VF and used to bottom.

But it hustles and feels like I have no excuse at this point with this beast. Also the colors seem a little nicer or its in my head.

Tomorrow I am going to use the 5d3 and compare raw files and hopefully I should now. Just so tempting.

Pair of 5d3's. Af, better lcd if outdoor wedding for playback, joystick to move focus points faster, balances nicer with primes like 85 1.2 and 70-200 2.8, larger viewfinder. Just a few for me.

I have a B+W 10-stop in 77mm and an 82mm Schneider (parent of B+W) 10-stop bought before they re-released them in the B+W line.

They're very good, but it seems the Singh-Ray is the new 'best'.

Thanks that singh-ray while expensive looks promising. I also want to grab the fireworks at disney and hope 10 stops is not too much at night to get a few bursts without blowing out my highlights. Also wanted to try some long exposures to play with the effect of people who are walking by not being in the picture provided they do not stop in the frame.

On a canon 5d3 24-70 v2 82mm
Tripod will be used of course. Looking for high quality. Any suggestions from experienced users? Looking for 8-10 stops
