I'm still thinking (hoping?) that the delay is due to some incompatibility and Canon want to avoid further egg on their face. PreProd models are out there, and nothing significant has been reported, so would guess it is something to do with an add-on as this site reported.

I would be surprised if Canon are not loaning pre-prod models to press agencies and the like so they can get used to the camera and thus buy en-masse when the Prod models are released, with an appropriate "thank-you" discount.

UK CPS members have not offered any advanced orders...

Anyone know what discount Canon Canada gave CPS members off the list (Rob Galbraith reported significant)....
If life is all about what you do in the time that you have, then photography is about the pictures you take not the kit that took it. Still it's fun to talk about the kit, present or future :)

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.

Hi - I know it is not a really fair comparison, but would you have any views on quality of 1D IV vs IDX or the 5D III please?

I won't comment anything about 1D X image quality yet, sorry.

From what we can start seeing left and right on various post, it looks very promissing!  (ok ok wishful thinking on my part since I ordered it and paid in full already!).

I wanted to see how much the IDX or 5D III was better, I just figure there will be a good number of MK IVs going for a good deal soon, and since no f/8 on the 1DX then I like to look at options...

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

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

Set the 1D4 Low continuous and see how many you miss ....

ISO6400 seemed similar to ISO3200 on my 5dii, which is what I was expecting..

Very impressed. IQ looks like it's a real step up from my 5dii.

So this would suggest little change from the mkiii from iso perspective.  Did you have a chance to shoot with 5d mkiii by curiousity?
My current view was the 5diii was 2/3rd stop better than the 5dii and the 1dx was 1/2 stop better than the 5diii.

This is just seeing other random files around the place...

The 1dx files do seem ... crisper somehow. I'd say there was a difference between the two cameras.

I'm pretty sure that moire filters have less of an effect the larger a sensors pixels are.

The crisper image may just be due to bigger sensels being easier on lenses. Anti-aliasing filters are designed for each sensor, so smaller sensel ones have "weaker" AA filters.
