Camera and lens are now home.
I can't post full exif images with the 1DX coz Canon won't let me register the camera through my CPS account. Apparently it does not exist yet.
I will eventually get around to post images (albeit with no EXIF) Why no EXIF you ask. Well, it reveals the serial number and I don't want unscrupulous people to register the camera before I do.
Below the actual items on my desk :D

Really? Source?

I don't have a specific source, but I thought it was pretty common knowledge that these sensors were pretty much identical, only that the 1DX has additional processor in order to utilize color metering and of course the faster frame rate.

Looking at those samples I see about a 1/2 stop of improvement over the 5D3, which is about what I expect.

From the 5D MK II? I agree. ;)

And here you have straight out of camera small JPG.

High ISO noise removal, auto light optimization and other image enhancing stuff is off.. Image set to neutral with + 3 sharpening on camera. Files put through Photoshop to remove metadata (as already stated) and saved to web in original quality. No other processing was done on the files.

ISO 100 to 51200 can be downloaded Here (external link)

Please note this is a 40MB zip file and I will remove it tonight at 18:00 sharp (UK Time) to protect my Bandwith.
Once you have them feel free to upload them and share them (give me credit).
Enjoy. :)
All images taken with the Big 600 :D

Holy Camera porn Batman! 1DX + 600/4is II! Congrats by the way. Sorry to hear about the serial number issue. Hope Canon gets that squared away soon so that you won't need to keep stripping EXIF.

Oh it takes the serial number just fine but, I can't select 1DX on the model drop down menu coz there isn't one. So, it won't let me register it. :(.
Hopefully they'll have this sorted soon and I will be able to post full RAWS for your perusal

LOL - I think that he thinks that he's being humorous, but he comes across as, well, an idiot!

Anxiously awaiting some images myself. Not that I'm planning on buying one any time soon, but I'm curuous as to what Canon's able to achieve with this body. With the 5D3, I'm already at least partially familiar with the new, excellent AF system.

You're kidding right? As far as I know, the 1Dx and 5D3 share pretty much the same AF system. The difference is that the 1Dx uses color information as part of its AF algorithm correct? So which part of that isn't suited for wedding photography again? The AF system on the 5D3 is more than capable of handling any situation you would encounter at a wedding. That's not defending the 5D3. That's just fact.

Compared to 18.1MP, 21.3MP is "tons of MP"? Certainly not. That's a minuscule difference.

Now if the 1DX had a stop or two over the 5D3 in high ISO performance, I would certainly entertain buying it. It would probably have to lean towards 2 stops to shell out an extra $5k. Believe me. I want that to be the case, although I seriously doubt it. Do I need the build? Nope. Nice to have? Sure. I used to shoot with a 1 series body and I certainly appreciated the build. Do I need the faster fps? Nope. 6fps is good enough for me. Is 10 fps better? Again, sure. But I don't need it.

It seems like the opposite is happening. Those who are considering the 1DX is trying to convince themselves that the 1DX is light years ahead of the 5D3. From all indications, it's is not.

What's $3000 as a wedding photographer? Sure, not a big deal. But hey, if I don't have to spend $3000 for a camera I don't need, then well, the smart thing to do is the keep that money in the bank, no?

I can respect where you're coming from but I have to disagree with you strongly. Bottom line, the 1dx is a much better camera in quite a few areas and the best reason I can think to own it is it's reliability. Spending the extra money on a camera that's way less likely to fail is a worth while investment. I've also mastered using the spot metering to the AF point in certain situations and for me this is major piece of mind for those times I don't have time to play with things in full on manual. Even a half a stop better in terms of ISO performance is enough to easily spend the money on the 1dx. There is no convincing myself as soon as I got the literature on the 1dx from CPS I knew this was the one I've been waiting on to replace the 5dmk2 as my main body.

Your right about the mk3 being a great camera and full capable I'm not disputing that. The difference to me is that I see the extra 4k spent for what you are getting in the 1dx a wise investment especially when you have every lens you would ever need already. When I had a chat with the canon reps in Vegas in regards to the 1dx they were adamant about the 1dx being quite a bit better focusing in low light and to me if this is true that is HUGE for a wedding photographer and an edge I can't imagine not taking advantage of.




Too much Gear to list! :lol:
