Geez! This has not been the intention of my OP!
All I was doing was taking a "first" shutter click with a new camera and new lens, both just out of their boxes.
The first thing I needed to know is whether the cameras or lens were DOA or not.
So, rather than taking a shot of my kitchen table, I just ran out my back door to click the shutter on something that was a little more esthetic.
Second, I was curious as to how the camera settings were shipped from the factory. I didn't even LOOK at the settings at first...just for fun. So I took the shot and THEN started rolling through the menus so see the defaults they set when coming off the factory line. (Set on Program Mode , Single Point Focus without the grid)
It resulted in a fair shot, but not something I would have otherwise posted anywhere, except for the reasons I did. Can't believe some of the vitriol and sarcasm that resulted. Sheesh! Apparently, some people think I was trying to show what a fantastic camera the 1DX and the lens were. Nothing could be further reality.
I'm looking forward to learning the functions and settings of the camera, and begin to use it as it was intended...and to be able to get shots like the one below, taken with my 7D, but with even more precision and at FF.
