1DX is the 'FLAGSHIP'...

BUT the 5D3 has just been said to have 'UNSURPASSED IQ'



I WONDER WHICH WILL WIN THE IQ CROWN????????

It's been almost 4 months since the 1dx was announced and we've yet to see a review or high iso samples....I have a feeling this question wont be answered for a long long time.

I'm still waiting patiently :)

Which features of 1Dx would make it 'worth' ~2x the cost ?

Twice the frame rate ?

AF features ?

~81% the number of pixels with some degree of  'improved' ISO sensitivity / dynamic range ?

Dual CF vs CF / SD card slot ?

Integrated grip?

Improved weathersealing ?

Custom features ?

I was planning on the 1Dx but am now questioning my commitment.  The 5DIII seems like the marriage between my 1dIV and 7D with more pixels / full-frame sensor. 

How much better DR / ISO performance can we hope the 1Dx will have c/w the 5DIII and does that justify the 'surcharge' for some of these other features ?
1Dx, 1DIV, 5D3, 7D, (Sigma 15 FE)
16-35/2.8; 24-70/2.8 II; 70-200/2.8 II, 100-400L
35/1.4, 40/2.8; 50/1.2, 85/1.2, 135/2; 200/2

Given that those two camera bodies are relatively close in specifications (MP and ISO range) this is a hard call.
Maybe the 1D-X is better in low light capabilities, while the 5D Mark III is better in good light?  ??? Honestly I can't really tell from specs.
Nevertheless I expect Canon to deliver with the 1D-X. Otherwise what would be the point? Would it suffice to deliver on speed only? I believe not.

Does anyone really think Canon, after releasing the 1Dx which was touted as the merging of the 1D and 1Ds lines, but with performance and quality surpassing both, will turn around and hand the IQ crown to a camera body less than half it's cost?

Seriously?

Yes, the 5D3 will have "unsurpassed image quality".......AT IT'S PRICE POINT.  But I'll bet the 1Dx wears the IQ crown in a head to head comparison.

+1, which is why I'm still leaning on keeping my pre-order of the 1dx.  After having the a 5d2 and shooting in bad lighting conditions for years, I will stop at nothing to have superior AF and ISO.  I keep on telling myself that my clients deserve it ;)

Just like the 1DsIII's superior image quality to the 5DII's, I know that the 1DX will be better than the 5DIII.  I suspect that the 1DX's sensor will have a slightly weaker anti-aliasing filter, among other features that will be required to put the 1DX a level above the 5DIII.

Built in radio remote compatibility with the new Speedlight 600EX ... that would be amazing. Accompanied by receivers which transmit TTL information to current and past speedlights..

One can dream right? 

EDIT*** WOOPS, WRONG THREAD. MY APOLOGIES

I think the image quality will be equal on both cameras between ISO 100-640, with the 1D X taking the lead after that.  Image quality always seems better in good light, and the 1D X should shine in tougher situations.

I shot some images with the 1DX at CP+ in Yokohama this year and I can say the ISO performance was amazing! I saw very clean images all the way up to ISO 8000. It started to get a little grainy beyond that but still looked far superior than my 1D Mark IV.
Canon 1DX, Canon 5D Mark III, EF 85mm F1.2L II USM, EF 100mm F2.8L IS USM Macro, EF 16-35mm F2.8L II USM, EF 24-70mm F2.8L II USM, EF 70-200mm F2.8L IS II USM, 600EX-RT Speedlites, Profoto Studio Strobes, and a whole lot of boat load of light modifiers.

I was under the impression that the 5d II produced marginally better image quality (sharpness, colour rendition) than the 1Ds III in typical landscape/portrait scenarios.

That was based on a couple of reviews I vaguely remember reading a few years back.

I don't understand this - the 5D2's image quality was always considered fractionally better than the 1DS3's.

I don't think there will be anything to choose between the 1DX and 5D3, given their similar resolution and equal developmental age.

The 1Ds3 was acknowledged to have better IQ than the 5D2 at ISO's under 800.  The 5D2 suffered from banding issues at low ISO settings, well documented.  Above ISO 800-1600, the 5D2 was better than the 1Ds3 in IQ.

A lot of folks just assumed the 5D2 was better across the board, but most people were really referring to the IQ at higher ISO settings.  We're splitting hairs here, it's not some huge difference, but it is enough to notice it, especially at lower ISOs.
