You guys that are getting these. what brackets are you using to put on the bottom. I dont like the secure plates on promedias plate as it tends to dig into body and leave marks....looking at this universal one.......http://www.promediagea​r.com ...sal-L-Bracket-_p_135.html (external link)

TIA

I'm with Erik -- I'm waiting for RRS and their product, whether it's the same as the existing RRS 1D X L-plate or a new design. As we all know, RRS might be really expensive, but their products are Really Really Right! You can't beat the form and function.

Cheers,
Bryan

Mine was delivered a few hours ago - in time for a bit of football on the weekend.

Nice, the first ones was shipped here in Norway today. Mine is hopefully ready for next week. Missed the Norwegian Rally Championship leg that is going here locally this weekend though :(

Best camera in canons line up. EVER !!!

No Brainer. This is a body you can use for a number of years. Next stop for ISo and sensor technology is to mimic what the human eye can see. I never thought they would get it to where it is with this release.

Not gonna say they will never get it to see what my eye sees. As a digital camera user for the past 12 yrs...Im completely blown away with this update

Was not a hard decision at all

I just want to echo this sentiment. Every aspect of the 1Dx1 that kept me from taking the plunge has been rectified with the Mark II. The Mark I is a phenomenal stills camera and I would have been supremely content with one, but I always had a nagging doubt, perhaps unfounded but it was there. It may have been my need for both great stills and video capabilities professionally, and while I could purchase a better dedicated video camera than even the Mark II I appreciate having the convenience of both in one body. With the Mark II, for what it's worth, it was an instant buy in my mind after seeing the specs and some sample videos made with it. Is the camera perfect? Nope. Is it the best thing Canon has ever released and a small technological marvel in the digital era? Yes! Did it make me instantly start saving money to afford one? Absolutely.

Not sure, really. I actually think the 5D4 will be more up my alley. I suspect the same basic ISO performance, but more resolution, and same or better great AF than the 5D3. That will be the camera I go to, possibly. That would afford me the flexibility I really want, without spending a ton of cash.
