I`m wonder why nobody talk about only 5(five) 2.8 focus points in new 1dx (5D3) compared to almost all in 1D4. Is it no matter to all? What is the diffrerence in real life? For me a so big and important.
The five in the center of the 1Dx array are double Cross type points. A type of AF point that only exists in the canon lineup as of today and is only in the 5D3 and 1Dx.
The 1Dx AF has 5 Special Double cross type, 36 Standard Cross type, plus 20 Standard AF points. All of these are active with f/2.8 lenses or faster.
