And of particular importance to me was achieving a very low noise ISO6400 file that I was willing to use at A4 (which is kind of the max I print weddings at). The 6400 shots I've seen work incredibly well at A4.

In fact, they work so well I might even be willing to go to 12800. So far I've only been happy going to 3200... that's a pretty good win!

I don't know... my eyes tell me it's just a stop better than the 5dii but something about the quality of the noise makes me willing to go further.

So they are close then ...

 ;)

I didn't have much time do compare them more - I wanted to enjoy 1D X as much as possible, so I left 5D III behind :) But yes, 5D III's AF is great, I'm not afraid to say better then 1D IV.

Now, i still need to wait another 2 months to get mine!   :-[
I'm been kind of offered one from Canon through my dealer... but getting it out of them is proving very difficult!

Grr!

Canon really did do a great job there... I understand the price increase *in their eyes* - they've produced a mini 1dx.

When i tried the 5d mkiii i also noticed the same aspect of the noise being of better quality or easier to live with compared to the mkii, in addition to the better performance.  So i would suspect to see the same of noise characteristic on the 1dx...cool!

Definitely. Today I took 5D III to the truck racing testing day and had maybe 10 misfocused shots out of 400...

I just tried the only 12800 1dx shot I have and scaled it down to A4 - and it was indeed usable. Need to do more testing yet, but it's looking good so far!

The difference to me really is that noise looks more like noise - it's not accompanied by a lack of sharpness or any blotchyness or bittiness. That means I can push the NR a bit higher and keep a nice sharp shot at the size I need. I wouldn't print it huge, but I would print it in an album no issue.

Now that sounds very promissing!

Very cool indeed.  Am a big racing fan so this is very cool to see!  Well done.
