The 5D4 silent mode shutter is plenty quiet enough for weddings. I would take resolution any day for weddings. There are few things nicer to look at then a large metal print of a newly wed couple. That resolution gives you latitude to crop and still have something for those large prints.

If you could only get one, what one would you go with?

If I was doing landscapes, wildlife, and weddings primarily, the 5D4 is my choice, as the resolution is great, and the AF/IQ/DR is also very good.

The 1DX gives you speed with FF goodness, so if I didn't need that, why not save money and also get more resolution? I could buy a 1DX tomorrow if I wanted one, but I fail to see what it will do for what I shoot, so I stay with the 5D4 and the 7D2 as my backup crop body when I need a more pixel density/reach.

I think I'm leaning more towards the 1DX Mark 2. One thing I'm seeing on some reviews is the sound of the shutter on the 1DX Mark 2 compared to the 5D Mark4. Other than Sports and portraits I do shoot the occasional wedding and some events at church. Anyone use the 1DX Mark2 for weddings and events?

Dankata - Daniel and Umphotography - Mike shoot portraits and weddings and have posted some stunning images with the 1DXII.

I know this has been discussed some here already and I have read some of the discussion but wanting opinions. I currently shoot with a 7D Mark2 and wanting a full frame camera. I have enough saved for the 5D Mark4 but wondering about holding off until I can get the 1DX Mark2. I shoot a lot of sports and some portraits/events. I was wanting a full frame for mainly portraits and would still use my 7D for some sports for extra reach the crop body gives.

How do they compare in low light situations?

What about the lack of wifi on the 1DX Mark2? Do you use wifi much and how do you use it?

What about the limited touch screen on the 1Dx compared with the more functions of the touch screen on the 5D?

Do you own/shoot both? What's your opinions/pros/cons of each?

Thanks in advance for any input.

Jax.
It may be which one to buy first?
No wrong choice, just a difficult one.
As I have a pair of 5D Mark III's myself, I have been thinking the same.
If I had the money now for a 5D Mark IV I would grab one. The real problem is that I shoot two cameras at events, sports, weddings etc. so then I would have to buy two......
A good thing about less images per second is less culling like previously mentioned. However the 1Dx Mark II does allow you to get the down beat AND the up beat , which may or may be that perfect frame we all want to capture.
Using your 7D Mark II paired with a 5D Mark IV may allow an easier back and forth between both bodies with different lenses attached to both.
Happy shopping.
Tough choice? yes........Wrong choice?.......Hell no!
Enjoy.

For me it would be 300/400mm f2.8 IS II first. If you have that covered then yes, I would look at 5dmk4 or 1dxII. Lenses are more important than small changes in camera (canon side).

If you already own 2x 5D3's, why change? They are great cameras, best of both worlds, great image quality, exact duplication of buttons etc to work with in the dark.. If the bodies aren't holding you back creatively or financially, skip a generation.

Ok, after much consideration, I finally decided to bite the bullet and pulled the trigger on the 1DX Mark2. It should be here Monday.

Thanks for all of your input. :-)
