Agreed, the 5D3 won because it is a better all round camera. I'm not surprised this thread is fairly quiet.

For me the 1D X is the camera of the year 2012.
+1....I'm not a 1D X owner yet, but I did have a chance to hold and shoot with it through a friend. I love EVERYTHING about 1D X - low light shooting, the grip, size, frame rate, AF system, how the camera feel in the hands etc..I can go on for days here. I think the main reason 1D X didn't get to be "camera of the year" is the price tag - this is NOT an ave Joe camera.
Assuming I'll get one tomorrow, am not sure how to justify 1D X purchase to the "boss" at home yet. About "honey, I accidently bought a 1D X instead of 5D III and the camera store will not allow me to return it"
F/4 sounds like the solution to me.
if Canon wont release the proper firmware, might as well wait for an upgrade from Magic Lantern
I'm not much impressed by all the doom and gloom some people talk about Canon on this site. My view is if they really think what they say on here they would be best going out and using what ever it is they think is so fantastic. It would be a lot less stresfull for them.
Having said that I will soon be a Nikon user. My 1Dx is such a great camera it has taken a picture that won me first prize in a national competition, well its in a national paper anyway , and the first prize is a Nikon.
Well I'll be happily getting the best I can out of that camera now, accepting it for what it is and enjoying my hobby.
At that time we'll be doing eye transplants.These are already available )))
Sensor with special adaptor to connect this sensor to nurve stem.
This allowed to restore vision to totaly blind people
Also brain microchips implants are already availabe - being used to restore some lost brain functionlity.
Problem before was connection of non-organic chip to the organic tissue and provide purmanent electical contact to nurves and it was successfully resolved few years back.
Our eyes are like D800 where we can (naturally) pull out a lot of shadow details instantly.
Maybe your visual system is like the D800. Mine has far more than 13.2 stops of DR, my 'raw files' are transferred and processed much faster, and image noise is nonexistent. OTOH, image playback loses some of the detail...
