To me the big advantage of the 1DX is the weather sealing and the ability to program functions - just pushing one button and in a split second i can go from freezing a subject to panning ( i shoot mostly wildlife and motorsports) - must say the autofocus and action capabilities of the 5Dmk3 impressed me when i tested both shooting swallows in flight - a very small object with a lot of directional changes during flight with really tests the autofocus (shot handheld with a a 300mm....)
No worries to the board regarding Adorama. If this type of thing happens, they said it will be corrected regardless if the original camera can be found or not. They also mentioned it would be overnighted. I can't see a problem here, thanks.
That makes sence to me.
Someone made a mistake, so? When I stop making mistakes I'm going to start expecting everyone else to be perfect. Untill then I will be having a beer with the other chilled folks.
I really hope they are working on the AF lighting fix. I used my 5Diii for the first time last weekend at a wedding and the non-lit point drove me nuts in the dark reception hall. It was especially bad trying to use AI focus with people dancing.
If they have a problem with the exposure meter getting tricked by the lighted points, I would be perfectly happy with them only lighting up in manual mode!!!
If you're that bothered by the skin tone reproduction by today's DSLRs, hire a professional processing lab to do the final touches on your shots.
If you're recommending something like that, you're really not getting my point...
I get the feeling some are obsessed with matching Nikon and their mega pixels and not worried about the conversation of how a photo can look... however minute the change can be.
I hear it time and again, when you have MF quality, the difference is there. When you have a dslr, most will try to appease themselves and insist MF, for some tech/scientific/'I read somewhere' reason, is not worth it and not even advantageous anymore.
I'm very happy with the 5dmkiii, very happy... it's much better than I thought it would be over the 5dmkii. But, there's always room for improvement, usually in aspects very difficult to make better, unlike MP which is where all the attention gets placed.
You don't have to be a high paid fashion/car photographer to be able to appreciate that.
So I aimed and fired out the kitchen window, thru the glass, and you have to admit that despite the mediocre image, this was a true verification of the AF system on the 1D X.
Which wing did you aim at?
