Waiting for the 1Dx...
« on: April 05, 2012, 11:28:41 AM »
It sucks...

Even worst is the fact that more and more reviews about the 5DIII are appearing and it seems to be a fine camera. I can't help but felling robed by current MKIII owner... They stole the 1Dx AF system and are allowed to play with it in our faces! :)

Oh well... I guess we just have to wait a bit more... But seriously, this lack of info about the 1Dx makes me wonder...

I feel your pain, I have concerns if maybe I should just go for 5D mark III since it has all the stuff from 1DX, but then I did fail in love with 1DX back in October when I got a chance to play with it for a day.

I am just saying to myself that good things come to those who wait. :)

I am flying to Europe for Euro Soccer Cup 2012 that will start in 64 days, I am just hoping that I will be able to get that camera before I go, if not I will have to think of other alternatives.

If I didn't need the built quality of the 1 series I would have gone with the 5DIII...

I really wonder how the IQ will be compared to the mkiii in terms of DR, sharpness and other stuff like that.  Also curious to finally know how it will perform on ISO compared to the D4...

Yep, it's not. But for me, it's the feature I can't live without. The new metering system is nice too, even if I could live without.

I do a bit of everything... And I mostly don't want to care if I can take a shot or not. Rain, snow, dirt, tight spaces or zip line... If I can go, I want the camera to follow :)

Well waiting for the 1dx, i think the new 5d mkiii has vastly improved weather seeling...

It's improved to about the level of the 7D, from what I've read.  Still short of 1-series build by a significant margin.

I concur. The build quality of the 5DIII is great, but it's still not a 1-series. My ancient 1DII is built like a tank, and still feels snappier and more responsive that the 5DIII. I can't see anyone that really needs a 1Dx going cheap and buying the 5DIII.

I've always admired the build quality of my 1DII. I could trust this camera with whatever I would throw at it. One major less thing to worry about, you know the camera is gonna work. This is worth a lot of money for me.

One of the things that sold it for me is the faster AF due to the high voltage battery. I can get a shot that I might otherwise miss.

The specs mentioned above, plus the dual UDMA 7 CF card slots, bigger buffer, faster burst rate, and faster AF are essential features for many shooters. I can get away withouthaving those luxuries, but they are essential features for many photographers :)
