    Anyone else ditching the 1dx3 for now?

    The 1D X is still doing fine for me, and I have the R for travel and the M6 for lighter travel. But if I were looking to replace my 1D X, it would be with the 1D X III. Why? Four words: Er. Go. Nom. Ics.

    Reports of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III going to sleep/locking up briefly

    Yes, you forgot to mention that his aerospace company owns 35 of them. And that they engineered a front mounting 10-element close-up filter that gives the lens the resolution of an electron microscope.

    1DXMKIII - Just OK

    Hypobole, I think.

    Monopod Case recommendations

    I use a Really Right Stuff TQB-64 for my RRS MC-34 monopod with MH-02 Pro tilt head. FWIW.

    EF 100-400 ii IS & monopod questions for birds, both perched and BIF

    I use mode 2 on a monopod for perched birds (with my 600/4 II, but the principles are the same).

    Will Canon Stopped Develop EF Lens Line Up?

    Your implication is that Sony is the choice for pros. The Super Bowl is coming up – count the Sony stills cameras you see on the sidelines and on the field after the game, compared to Canon or Nikon. Let us know if Sony is the most-used brand.

    Will dSLR's be sustained only by nostalgia?

    The thing is, ergonomics are not really part of a ‘spec’. If Canon (or someone else) makes a mirrorless ‘pro’ body (i.e. 1-series) in the current ‘pro’ form factor and an improved EVF, I would have no problem replacing my 1D X with such a camera. If Canon makes a ‘pro‘ mirrorless that improves...

    Groundswell?

    For as long as there are idiots. So basically, forever.

    Free M6 with purchase of lens: EF-M 18-150 + M6 (Mk I) for $449

    That’s a sweet deal. I have both, but I’m almost tempted to buy them again!

    Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Summary

    The 1D X doesn’t quite have a dedicated focus mode selection button, the AF-Drive button does both AF mode and drive speed. However, the 90D has a truly dedicated AF mode button, and has AI Focus AF. So, your rationale that a dedicated AF mode selection button obviates AI Focus AF doesn’t...

    Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Summary

    My 1D X doesn’t have a switch like that. I can program a button to that function, but instead I have C-modes with different minimum shutter speeds and AF modes.

    Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Summary

    I did (that it’s not there) to make exactly the point that you reiterated.

    Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Summary

    1-series bodies have not had AI Focus AF, just One Shot and Servo. I suspect Canon knows how well AI Focus works, and thus omitted it from the 1-series.

    Canon EOS-1D X Mark III Summary

    An early firmware update for the 1D X added the ability to autofocus at f/8.

    AFMA of long lenses

    Agreed. I’ll take an algorithm over the Mark 1 eyeball every day of the week.

    AFMA of long lenses

    I use Reikan FoCal for my 600/4. However, I don’t tether the camera but rather, as I do with all my lenses, I capture a set of images spanning the AFMA range then analyze them manually in FoCal.

    Canon officially announces the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III

    Looks awesome. But honestly, I’m not tempted enough to buy it. Sure, if my 1D X falls off a cliff into lava I’ll replace it with a 1D X III. For me, it’s less about the degree of improvements and more about the fact that the 1D X still very effectively meets my needs.

    Canon EOS-1D X Mark III appears on latest product list

    Hello, I’d like to introduce you to Reality. Apparently the two of you haven’t met.

    The dangers of GAS.

    I had planned on buying the EOS RP, which was released just before I was leaving on a trip. It wasn’t in stock anywhere, so I bought the EOS R instead.
