Bought on the Beach Camera EBay deal last weekend. Arrived yesterday.
I think it has a better image than my 1D MKIII as I would expect. But other than that, I think I am spoiled by both the build and the configurability of the 1D.
Took minutes to configure. All seems fine, no dead or hot pixels.
But I do have a question or two:
First, the shutter is very loud. Sound like the mirror make a good bit of a "thunk" regardless of shutter speed. Is this normal?
Second: When I cycle through the 9 points of focus, it sometimes skips a point or two seeming to favor the 4 corners. Also normal?
I think what will happen is that this and my 1D will become down payments for a 1D X, but too soon to tell. A few weeks to live with it should help.
And, I am off in an hour for a business trip for 10 days, so replies to your replies will likely happen in the evenings when I have time unlike my normal instant responses
