Canon also say in their white paper why the old one didn't work and why this new one is superior, I'm not buying it anymore.
Others may have different needs, but in cave light situations and my kids bouncing off the walls, I still manage to have everything in focus with correct exposure using off center points, all I need. And the 1dx beat the 1d4 in this regard big time, so much so that it's not a point for me to upgrade when there is a big difference in price.
Talking about a predecessor it is possible to improve. Of course the numbers being used are exaggerated, perhaps each new model might exceed the last by maybe 10-20%. How often haven't I said "oh this is 10 times better"! Just a figure of speech A pinch of salt is needed.
Some of the enthusiastic exaggeration derives from the apparently remarkable DPAF and video I think.
Exactly ! So when he claims is THAT much better than the predecessor, I know where the salt is. Which means the improvement in this case isn't worth it. It's fun to read though.
