What do you guys want to see?  Just tell me and I'll spend the next few days doing it.  I have the 1D X, 5D3, and 1D4.  I can shoot whatever.

Oh, I read it all what I can find about specs and know them by heart from.October last year, but I fail to see any proof the tracking is better, not just on paper...

The af and tracking is the main reason why I choose cameras, so I guess the 5d3 is the best choice...

And if we look at what USED to separate the 5d and 1d, I think it's very safe to say the 5d3 is by far the best Canon value for money...

And the difference between å 60d and å 5d is way bigger than the 5d3 and 1d x, so I don't get that point Neuro...

Hello sanj,

I prefer the old 1 Ds Mark III and the 5D Mark II for landscapes.

Yes, the 1D X has no wheel with C1 to C3. Thats what I wrote. With the wheel you can change very fast your settings. Changing the settings with a 1D xxx Body is much slower.

Reply to: I missed the HDR function in 5D Mark III.

The 5D Mark III HAVE one of the best in-camera-HDR-functions.

But I prefer the new bracketing with 7 shots and the preproduction with Photoshop CS6 Extended or the latest Photomatix version.

I am interested to hear from anyone who has used both cameras.  I have two 5D3s and I am a wedding photographer.  I love my cameras but I am always curious if there is something better that will help me do my job better.  I am interested if the AF is just a little faster and better and I have also read that the sensor may be a little better.  Anyone have any experience with the two cameras?
The focusing on the 1DX is faster and sharper. Only
By a 15% or so. Nothing major but noticeable.
I tested both with the same lightning setup and the same 24-70
f2.8L lens.
Also, listening to the machine gun-like sound of 12fps is
Amazing. Even the sound of the shutter is clean and sturdy. The old 5D II sounded horrible. I
Love the sound of the 1D X
The best advantage of the 1D X is the ergonomics and feel. Even with the grip, the 5D doesn't feel as sturdy and comfortable, but with the extra 4MP and $3000 price
Difference, the 5D is the clear choice.

All right, I'm still out shooting, but so far my general observation is if you have the 1D Mark IV, the clear upgrade is the 1D X.  If you already have a 5D Mark III, you would not substitute the 1D X for the 5D Mark III.  So far I'm not seeing anything difference in regards to IQ.  I did a really far crop on one photo out in a field, and the depth of detail stops shorter in the 1D X photo, likely due to the less 4 mp than the 5D Mark III.  Well, now this is interesting.  Like Brian mentioned, the coloring looks different because I'm thinking the 1D X and 1D4 for that matter, you can even throw in the 1Ds3, seem to be metering more accurately and the colors look a bit more accurate.  Sometimes the auto ISO on the 5D3 is slightly off, even though it says the exposure is correct, whereas the 1D X, 1D4, and 1Ds3, are never wrong.  Photos to come.

Awesome, thanks for going out of your way to provide your experience, means a great deal!

The metering on my 5d makes me miss the 1-series option to adjust 0 ev on the scale... my 5d3 is usually off by at least one full stop to my liking, always +1 or up to 3 stops up in backlight situations...

Yep.  Same thing I noticed.  The 5D3 pictures are SHARPER than the 1D4, it's just I have to adjust exposure and color in post.  The 1D Mark IV pictures I can literally not even touch the exposure bar and I noticed this with the 1Ds3 and 1DX.  That is an excellent point to note!  I'm headed out now to do some landscape shots in the afternoon/evening sun, some telephoto shots on distance objects, and then some high ISO night shots indoors.  I would like to do a bit more low ISO work, but that may take a day or two to get in those situations.  I have a ton of ISO 400 work from yesterday, but that's not really what I wanted; I was hoping for 50-100.

I am waiting patiently for my 1DX

Then I will do my own tests:

- I shoot in good light, so most of my photos are at iso 400 or less
- if natural light isn't good enough then out come the flashes

So far for my style of shooting:

5D classic and 1Ds2 render differently than the 7D - IMO much nicer
1Ds3 renders better than the 1D4 and gives better IQ
1Ds3 and 1Ds2 are much harder to separate, apart from the 16 and 21mps

1 Series have the AF point metering
1 Series have better (more accurate) AF than the equivalent technology others

Hence 1 Series get more keepers from a series

Below is a picture of Bayeux Cathedral (France) taken on a walkabout with my 1DS3

I'm posting a quick, unedited 3 shots of landscapes, with 16-35L II lens, with the 1D X, 5D3, and 1D 4.  The exposures were similar, at f/22, 1/125s, ISO 200 focusing distance the same.  Again, these are RAW to JPEG immediately out of camera.

When I lined them up on my computer, the 1D X shot had much finer detail in the grasses in the lower half of the photos.  All of them were shot in Portrait Mode.

My next series of shots are of a church, with a lot of details and shadows.
