A great compliment for the 1DX,especially if you need the reach.
I am happy with my 1DX and any fixes or added features via firmware is just icing on the cake (and I don't care much for icing). The red focus point feature was a nice add last time and the fix for the 200 f/2.
Canon appears to be listening to the photographers and adding features that are wanted such as disabling a button that may cause issues. The current 1 series bodies do so much more than the first generations every did. We should be thankful.
It's just a remote chance but check the electrical contact pins on the camera. Make they are clean and not bent or deformed. I had issues similar in the past and after cleaning the contact pins with contact cleaner formulated for gold pins the issues went away.
i do not know much about 1dx but sometimes a tight lens hood could cause this problem also... have you try with other lens?
HMMM...New ergonomic design? Why? The 7D's, and 5D III which borrowed from it, ergonomics are pretty damn stellar...
7D & 5D3 ergonomics are pretty good but I'd comfortably reserve the Stellar award for 1-Series bodies.
Non 1-Series bodies feel almost clunky by comparison. I use both on a daily basis. Ergonomics is one of the defining points of difference between 1-Series and 7D/5D3. Once used, it's hard to settle for less.
If the 7DII can close the gap with further ergonomic refinement then what's there to argue?
Forgive the ignorance but what is a contextual bone?
Means add come context to the question, for example with this thread, if this were the case, maybe starting out by saying you have both a 1D IV and a 1D X and are wondering if you should keep the 1DIV, and what others who've made the switch from 1DIV to 1D X did/thought.
I'm sure we all accept your apology - and it was big of you to give it.
Context for questions is good. Throw us a contextual bone next time.
How many of you guys here have upgraded to the Canon 1DX from the 1D MKIV and never regretted it?And why?
You've been asking these one-line quiz questions about the 1DX since July, without ever responding to or thanking the people who replied. In August, you even asked where you could get a screen protector for the 1DX.
Just buy the damned camera!
If you read all the threads that I have started,I always end it with "Thanks."In regards to buying a 1DX,I have done it already a couple of months ago.
Saying "thanks" at the end of your question isn't the same as acknowledging those who actually answer your questions, which is a common courtesy.
Also, you never provide any context for your questioning. Wrongly or rightly, it is very easy to infer from this question, just like all your previous questions, that you don't already have a 1DX. Indeed, it's hard to understand the point of this question from a current 1DX owner.
