I'm posting a quick, unedited 3 shots of landscapes, with 16-35L II lens, with the 1D X, 5D3, and 1D 4. The exposures were similar, at f/22, 1/125s, ISO 200 focusing distance the same. Again, these are RAW to JPEG immediately out of camera.

All right, I'm still out shooting, but so far my general observation is if you have the 1D Mark IV, the clear upgrade is the 1D X. If you already have a 5D Mark III, you would not substitute the 1D X for the 5D Mark III. So far I'm not seeing anything difference in regards to IQ. I did a really far crop on one photo out in a field, and the depth of detail stops shorter in the 1D X photo, likely due to the less 4 mp than the 5D Mark III. Well, now this is interesting. Like Brian mentioned, the coloring looks different because I'm thinking the 1D X and 1D4 for that matter, you can even throw in the 1Ds3, seem to be metering more accurately and the colors look a bit more accurate. Sometimes the auto ISO on the 5D3 is slightly off, even though it says the exposure is correct, whereas the 1D X, 1D4, and 1Ds3, are never wrong. Photos to come.
Awesome, thanks for going out of your way to provide your experience, means a great deal!
The metering on my 5d makes me miss the 1-series option to adjust 0 ev on the scale... my 5d3 is usually off by at least one full stop to my liking, always +1 or up to 3 stops up in backlight situations...
scantily clad ... sorry, i couldn't help myself. I don't have any special requests, thanks for doing this.
Having just picked up a 1Dx, I'm also considering selling my 5D Mark III and picking up a 1Ds III as my backup... Seems like the bottom has dropped out of the 1Ds III market. Still on the fence about it. The main things holding me back are the 5D III's silent shutter and the smaller form factor....
Curious as to what makes the 85 more magical than any other prime used at lg aperatures?

I can say that I mounted the 85L II, left the menu screen open for a while, took a few shots, and reviewed some images, all without an Err80. Note that what I did not do was to enable the orientation-sensitive AF point function. I already know that that breaks AFMA, and am starting to suspect it may be involved with this issue as well.
Cool. What film are you all choosing?
I was all set to buy the 5DIII from B&H for $3350, but it's back to $3500 now for some reason. Amazon is back to $3500 now too. What gives? I'm definitely not buying it without the warranty. Anybody know another place to get it for around the $3350 mark that is authorized by Canon?
