Yes, unfortunatelly this is just an announcement for the full review that they are planning to release on June 23th in they magazine, but hopefully on their web page as well.
Time is closing on the release of 1DX, this is getting more & more interesting by the hour.
Almost there... just a little more patience, and the "Hellish will be among us"!

Well its out today and I just read the review. Interesting read and you may be able to buy electronic copies too. The reviewer noted that it was the best canon he has ever used and that it would be his choice for an all round camera.

People do that?!  :o

To be brutally honest, the teaser of a review is so poor, I would not hold much hope for the actual article.

I am hoping for some real reviews to come soon.

1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

I'm just curious and maybe I'll have to wait to see the full review, but autofocus at 8/10 must raise some eyebrows. Autofocus is one of the BIG talking points of this camera and everyone (except amateur photographer) I know who have used this camera really raves about the autofocus. And yes... I know reviews should all be taken with a pinch of salt - but something like this just throws all credibility out of the window for me. It is quite clear this was a review written by a amateur Nikon user... (Oh and by the way... the 5DIII scored 9/10 for autofocus  ;D)

It is strange since the section starts with "The autofocus system is without doubt the most fascinating part of this camera" and includes snippets like "..and found the focus extremely impressive." and "Single focus locks on effortlessly even in low light...". 90% overall though.

Good read, thanks for the link. I'm curious as to why he gave the auto focus an 8/10.  Guess i'll have to wait till the full review :(

Personally I did not find it very useful. All information has been already covered by others and I think it's time for in-depth reviews showing specific use cases or real-life side-by-side comparisons with other cameras.

But +1 for topic starter for the founding :)

Thank you Nightbreath.
I agree with you, review lacks some real test, not to mention detailed video test.
Can't wait to spend hours and hours reading about this beauty from Canon.
Till next review of 1Dx I'm sending my best regards to all good people of Canon Rumors ;)

I was a bit surprised about the AF also.  The 5DIII's AF is fantastic and the 1DX's even better...so what gives?
