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....)

Well what do you mean?  An African or European swallow?

Update:  Adorama is going to send me an E+ conditon 1D Mark IV.  I'm really appreciative of this.  Adorama is a great company and they certainly proved it here regarding this issue.  I have done all of my business in the past with them, and now will continue to do so in the future.  Great job Jacob, Jack, and Helen, I really appreciate you guys.  This makes me very happy and you can expect me to buy much more equipment from you in the future.  Again thank you.  I highly recommend Adorma to anyone.

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 doubt anyone was expecting anyone to be prefect.  It's just a little nerve-racking when it's a $4500 camera that you need.  I sort of get what you're saying.  I'm sure if someone lost your 1DX you'd be having a beer with them all chilled out right?

As I said, it's taken care of, so there's not really any more need for posts are there?

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!!!

Yeah, I'd like them lit too.  If they do affect metering, if you are in manual mode, don't set ISO to auto :)

  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.

If they do make a super high MP camera, I'm not going to buy.  I'll keep my 5D Mark III and 1DX because they take the images I need.  I don't need anymore.  Good post.

I currently shoot with both.  The 1DX IQ at equal % cropping is slightly better than the 5D3.  Not much.  I took both cameras to a baby photo shoot for a lady, and printed the files on 8 x 10 from both cameras, and there was something about the 1DX files I liked better.  Is it $3000 better?  NO.  The only thing you'll be paying for on the 1DX is the superior AF/metering ability over the 5D3 and the IQ over the 1D4.  It's a 5D3/1D4 mix camera.  If you need to shoot action/sports,  you'll want the 1DX or 1D4.  5D3 still lacks there.  Portrait IQ on the 5D3 vs. 1DX is nil.  My experiences of course.

1D X Sample Images / Re: San Francisco Zoo
« on: August 21, 2012, 10:18:09 PM »
(...)
 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?  :P

Knowing my aim I probably wasn't even on the hummingbird :) :)

What was your ISO setting?  This result doesn't surprise me considering you were in a well-lit, evenly-lit area, probably down at ISO 100 or 200.  The 5D3 will do the same thing.  I've done it with the 5D3.

Where it isn't as nice, is at much lower lighting, at ISO 25,600 and above.  Doesn't work so well then.  It works better than the 5D3, but not really nice at all. 

I've realized the high ISO capabilities of the 1DX, don't get me wrong, they are real.  But I haven't realized them over the 5D3 yet nor have I realized any increased shadow detail over the 5D3.
