I'd follow what Canon have said themselves not with what some person has said. Most people say according to what they want to happen rather than what is.

Nikkito, what else can you share about your experience with the 1D X? Did you hear anything else about a release in June?

They ONLY thing a tad wrong with the 5d3 is the pop in the sharpness. It is softer than the 5d2 for sure, never touched the "detail-slider" in Lr before I got the 5d3. Now I have to.

One thing to consider with Lightroom...with the upgrade to LR4, they changed the default tone curve from Medium Contrast to Linear, which means your default import into LR will now be lower contrast than when you were using LR3.  I only upgraded to LR4 after I got my 5D3 -- if you did the same thing you might be mixing the effects of the upgrade to LR4 with the quality of the 5D3 outputs.  And to join in the whining...I miss my fill light slider!

I kinda miss the fill light too.. but you can still basically accomplish the same thing just with different sliders.

I talked to canon tech rep, on 5D3 firmware update.  I asked him when 1DX would ship; he thought next month.

So, if I am right, I have heard mid-June, but here we are 4 weeks from shipping and there is not a single official "we are on track for mid-June" statement from Canon!?! What am I missing?

Also, has Canon USA actually issued a statement regarding mid-June or is that Canon Japan?

Thoughts much appreciated!

The vendor I ordered from confirmed I'm 6th in line, and they had fairly recent confirmation that they will be getting their first shipment May 29th and the second on June 9th.

I'm taking it with a grain of salt, but if it's true my camera should ship June 10th. :D

Thanks for the update. Even if your dealer is not spot on, I will take what I can get :- )

My lightroom 4 imports with the preset curve exactly as I set it.  My 5D MK III is just as sharp as my 5D MK II, maybe slightly sharper. 
 
The new controls do away issues caused by the old fill light slider and allow more precise control.  However, the fill light slider has not gone away, justuse process 2010 if you like the old look and controls, its entirely your choice.

I talked to Bob.  I asked him when 1DX would ship; he thought September.  Who's Bob?  Doesn't matter - he's just as reliable a source as a Canon tech rep. 

FWIW, the recent official Canon press release said June.  I'd rank Canon's official statement just slightly higher than Bob's thoughts on the reliability scale.  Not that I wouldn't be happy to get my order filled tomorrow, but reality means that's pretty unlikely. 

From another point of view, given that some people already have had demo units in their hands, in one sense Canon is already shipping them.  Doesn't help me, though.

neuro, I hope the new 24-70 will be in store by Jun with 1D X. Can't wait to attach this lens on my 5d III.

Spoke to my pro dealer - the 1Dx is in fact shipping to press first as we speak this is expected to take a month. First shipment at least in Australia will be end of June for early July release.

1DX shipping date? For the average punter it will be further down the line from when the 1Dx is officially released.

News organisations, big agencies and the like will have their pre-orders filled before anyone else. And with the Olympics only five minutes away, you can be sure there will be a deep, deep stock of 1DX bodies available for evaluation and multi-day use at the CPS headquarters in London.

Canon will be making elite sports shooters nervous with the non-release of the 1DX. If they ship too close to the Olympics photographers will not have had enough frontline experience with the new body to feel 100% familiar with the changes from the 1D4.

But this camera just has to be right. After the PR disaster that surrounded the release of the 1D3 they'll be taking absolutely no chances. This almost certainly accounts for the delays so far.

If they're listening to feedback from action shooters, hopefully they'll have a fix for the dreaded black AF point debacle when using AI Servo that we have seen in the 5D3. The hand built beta 1DX bodies have exactly the same design flaw. Let's hope the shipping versions have dealt with this, and that the fix will flow through to 5D3 in the form of a firmware update.

Change the process from 2012 to 2010 and the fill light slider will appear. You just lose the new options from the 2012 version in doing so.

Really?? So how come I get wayway sharper images in DPP than in LR? And trust me, it has nothing to do with tone curve. I start every file with everything rest, apply my ColorChecker Profile and do the rest. I have never had that soft images with the 5d2. It's only in Lr also, well, DPP is the only one that gives me the same results I had in Lr with the 5d2.
