Nice review.  Thanks for posting.  Not sure if it was my iPad screen or something but the pictures in the article seemed soft a bit (the crop one)...  Did you find the same on your screen?

I see the same issue. Is it the lens issue?

This is so odd because we hear so much about some kind of softness in the mkiii image, which by the way i did experienced personally with my unit of the 5d mkiii i tried, and now we see lots of 1dx picture on the web with some kind of softness too.  Wondering if they changed something to their AA filter design that could cause this or maybe it is something else.   ???

They are raw files converted to Jpeg with no adjustments, wouldn't that cause them to look a little soft.

Really soft––almost blurry.  Strange.  My raw files from my 5d2 don't look that soft.  In fact with a good lens they almost need no sharpening.

+1 for me as well.  My 5D mkii raw are rasor sharp with all my lenses.  I dont know if it is firmware or something, but something is off with Canon new bodies...

On my 50D I accidentally turned the in camera sharpening down all the way once and my images looked sooooooooooooooo blurry.  I actually thought my camera broke.

So, I wonder what the in camera sharpening was set to in these because it does make a difference.

i got to try the 1D X a few days ago and the jpgs do look a bit soft for my taste. i guess that's something you can adjust with picture styles or just shooting raw.

i'll see if i can post some of those pics here.

JR I so agree its really worrying, I have no idea whats going on, I wanted to buy the 5D3 but was so concerned about the images being soft, is this something that can be fixed? who knows its really bad, I don't understand how this past a testing stage and was released like this,

I tried to reply on Jay Goodrich's post, and it wasn't posted as I said how terrible the images looked, it goes to show its all bullshit, monitoring what is posted about a camera because he has some sort of bond with Canon, I think you should be allowed to be heard, its only going to help Canon get better, not hide behind some S___ and post a blog about how great something is, when everyone knows there's some problem and it isn't so great, reviews from these people are meaningless if posts are monitored. shame shame shame.

I have a 1DX pre-ordered, but have really been leaning more towards a 5DIII lately. I have been questioning whether the IQ will seem like a downgrade from the 5DII i just sold, as i want a replacement for both my now sold 5DII and 7D. I think the reviews are getting better and better about the 5DIII now that it has been out for a little while, but i still feel there is alot of gray area about the 1DX and what exactly keeps pushing the release date back. Decisions, decisions....

Looking at the 100% crops... Do you guys think those would 'sharpen up nicely'?  It leave me wondering...

Edit:  It may even be the JPEG files causing the softness much like the 5diii JPEGs were a little off at first..

I only shot raw with the mkiii and it was still soft.
