Great Review. I like the real world Head to Head stuff, it is more realistic than a bunch of numbers (DxO) that don't mean anything.

Thanks for posting the link.
Gripped Canon 60D \ EF-S 15-85 F3.5-5.6 IS USM \ EF 70-200 F4L IS USM \ 430ex II Speedlite \ Love for photography.

I'm still surprised they picked the D4 as the better high ISO ... :S

Having used both, my humble opinion would be the the D4 might a touch cleaner (1/3 of a stop or 1/2 stop at most) all the way to ISO 6400.  Then from ISO 6400 onward, it seems the 1DX is better.  For the first time I shot some ISO 16,000 this week-end with the 1DX and they were actually very usable!!!
1DX, 24mm f1.4L II, 35mm f1.4L, 50mm f1.2L, 85mm f1.2L II, 135mm f2L, 24-70mm f2.8L II, 70-200mm f2.8L IS II :  D800, D4, and a whole bunch of Nikon lenses

I haven't had the chance to try the D4..yet. but I'm starting to believe that this is the case. :)

A little disappointed to see how much cleaner D4 looks when pushed 3 stops over 1Dx.  On the other hand, it's shocking to see 1Dx AF is "3 times faster" than D4, especially considering they were using 85L, which is not a AF speed demon by any stretch.  That higher battery voltage must really push the AF well..
