I was not able to do any comparison since these photos are not keepers. I was just curious as to how well the 5D3 could focus in very low light. To give you an idea, I had my flash set to the right and ISO was still 8000. The only real way to know is to take both cameras to a sporting event indoors and shoot AI Servo and get a feel for it. Although I agree, the 1DX focusing is amazing. The focusing on the 5D3 is tremendously better than the 5D2.
I will do this experiment again. Next time I will have a portable light on one side at least, and fill flash on the part of the sink that is more vacant. Manual focus where the drop will hit, and do a 6 fps burst on the 5D3 and 12fps burst on the 1DX. It will be fun to see if there are any additional parts of the splash recorded by the 1DX vs the 5D3.
