Here's a very high-ISO sample. This was shot as a jpg, not RAW, and it's straight out of the camera. Additionally, all the noise reduction options in the camera were turned off. All I did was resize it.

^No offense but, your shot looks blurry. I blame bad handheld technique. ;)

none taken, but you are right Julian. I've been sick for the past two days, so I've been more shaky than usual :)

Read the Andy Rouse review and knew I had to test the 1DX. So far so good, the AF really drives the lenses and the focus is so quick sometimes I have to rely on the beep for confirmation. Not sure if this pic is going to post, first attempt.

I'm interested in your reasons! Is Capture1Pro THAT much better?

Yes, it "is" that much better than all of the other alternatives out there. Just make sure you have enough machine to handle it.....Otherwise it will be frustrating.

Cheers HK. Fortunately I'm now running 64 bit and 16g ram, plus a few other gee-gaws my tech man put in there to make things move, so I guess it's just up to me! I've been reading a few reviews and it certainly sounds good.

Sigh! Something else to learn!

At low ISO let's say at 200, I am a bit disappointed on the sharpness of the pictures whether it's jpg or raw. I am shooting in neutral and raised the sharpness at 7 but still seeing noise and edges just don't seem sharp. Any idea why?

Sharpening set to 7 will likely just end up fabricating noise.

If your images aren't sharp, then the next question is whether you've MFA your lenses.

Can you explain what MFA means? Thanks!
Sorta new to this camera.

By the way I am using 85MM f/1.2, 50mm f/1.2, 24-70mm f/2.8, 16-35mm F/2.8 and it seems like many of my pictures are just not that sharp. My 5D 2 seem to shoot sharper pics.

MFA = AF Microadjustment = Page 102 of the manual.

Jesus I hate that. In talking with Canon on the phone they say only use if U drop the lens in the field. So if they cannot make sure the AF of the Pro bodies are within a certain spec. I would want them to fix it.

The lack of photos in this thread which is supposed to contain PHOTOS is becoming rather annoying, and is beginning to piss me off!!

Come on people...less BLABBING, more SNAPPING!!

My issue might be usable focus point with certain lenses? So does that mean if I have my AF point on my 85mm f/1.2 lets say all the way to the right of the frame that my sharpness will be off? So i will have to focus center of frame and recompose the shot?
