Did some testing of the 1DX in blowing and/or reflecting snow. Even with the temperamental 85L, the 1DX focus was fast and spot on! Some blue sky, white snow f/11 shots were easy as well with the 1DX. Love this camera.
(Used 85L, 70-200 f/2.8 IS II & 200 f/2)
I had done some similar shooting with my dog in the snow while it was snowing and I got a lot of shots where the AF picked up on the snowflakes that were in the air, rather than the dog, resulting in an oof shot. Maybe because my dog has a dark coat as a backdrop to the white snowflakes? Anyway, the situation tricked my 1dx af settings, did you have this happen to you at all while shooting your dog while it was snowing?
