I pulled the trigger and got mine on thanksgiving at B&H. This camera is great for me, what I like about it? the focus is a new hybird system like no other it is totally rebuild from the ground up. I had a little playing around before pulling the trigger. Guys that owns the 1DX gave some very strong information at the time, they said it was actually better than the 1Dx in focusing and tracking, this I don't know how valid it is (and don't care) since i do not own a 1Dx.
I like the tracking and how it does it's thing, I shoot with my 50mm 1.2 and 100mm 2.8 IS Maro which both lenses were very fast and smooth. The menu was really something new to get use to since I am a user of the 5d Mk2 and very satisfy with it's files out put, the only thing I really needed was a better focus system that is good enough for sports and action this was a area that I felt very limited in, since the 5d Mk2 is slow to do those tasks like I really want to. So it was time to fix this area, and I also was a user of the 40D that I sold so now that this one is back it's a great machine to have.
I shot in very low light and the system was very accurate most of the time, the best part of all this is that it was faster than what im use to.
One of the things, I notice was that the metering display that many says is not available in manual mode, this is incorrect I got mine to work in manual mode, somehow but will come back here to edit it in, just did it without notice how I did it, if i have to, the hook leaver at the back with its one direction selection is nasty, you can go into AF menu from left to right the second to last dot AF area selection method change that to main dial and you should be able to go forward and backward with a breeze.
I took a look at the ISO and to be honest I have no problem with the noise at all, since I happen to master my 5Dmk2 noise levels very well this camera should not be an issue since I shoot for shadows anyway and understand the results.
I have no negatives about this camera since I have bin using older systems for years, so i appreciate the bells and whistles that this camera has also with the dual pixels and the dual cpu's power, Im only happy to be capturing images in a much more fast fun way.
Thanks Canon for this great machine.
