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

more processing grunt under the hood basically also the higher voltage of the 1D power will drive AF faster on high end lenses

It definitely does - was shooting with the 85L II on the 1D X last night, and the focus motor moves noticeably faster than on the 7D or 5DII.

I was wondering why the AF score wasn't higher considering it's a notch above the 5DIII.

I can't imagine the 5D3 is as fast as the 1Dx but the 85 1.2L II is substantially faster on the 5D3 than the 5D2 also.

Part of it is likely on the 1D series there are "select" lenses that it provides more power to (higher voltage batteries), so the AF motor moves faster.

Guys, in one section of the Andy Rouse review he sayts that @ iso 2000 there is banding, etc, but that it is gone when he converts to tif. Is that a preproduction error, or is it the software he uses etc. . . . I don't think he was clear on that, or if he used noise reduction etc. . .

Has anyone seen any meaningful reviews of the 1DX for wedding photography?  I've searched high and low and found very few.  So, I left my own on Amazon to chronicle my experience with it in weddings http://www.amazon.com/Canon-EOS-1D-18-1MP-Digital-Camera/product-reviews/B005Y3T1AI/ref=dp_top_cm_cr_acr_txt?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1 . If there are any wedding photographers out there, I'd love to compare notes.  My review starts out rosy, then gets more nitpicky as I encounter different lighting and contrast scenarios.  It's a great camera, but with some caveats.  After reading Rouse's review and many others, I think weddings present their own unique challenges that are entirely different from sports/action photography.

The 1DX is heavy and you'll need and good comfortable strap or support system. The supplied Canon strap will cut into your neck after a while especially if you've got a LNG lens like the 70-200/f2.8 or the 100-400/f4.5-f5.6. Overall I am more than pleased with this camera and what it can do. I can shoot both videos and stills and not worry about memory storage with the 2 CF card slots.

Hi - I've been using the 1DX for wedding photography for the past few weeks.  I did a bit of a write up on my blog if you are interested:
