Yeah I use exposure compensation as well

Just don't get it. What is with the metering system of 1dx.


Interesting video on the 1D X vs D4, they say the D4 exposes 2/3s stop better. Although the Nikon Man switched to Canon, he came to the "Red side" :)

You just have to love the contrast of the cheapest EF lens being mounted on the most expensive EOS camera available today.

:)

Providing you don't need to manual focus, it's a great lens as long as it isnt dropped or damaged in any way.
Maybe I should have just put a body cap on because focus is being put on the wrong thing. :rolleyes:

Congrats!

Mine is still on backorder.

I don't see a mounting hole on the bottom plate. I use a blackrapid strap and would need to attach that to the L-plate. I thought they had mounts for that but don't see it in your images.

Did I miss something?

Way less than that, at least from what I see there in their pictures.

Oh, I fully agree! I'm not at all critical of it, and didn't mean for it to come off that way at all. I just found it amusing and a bit ironic.

Well, since you have the combination, I just have to ask: how good is the autofocus of the 1DX with that lens attached? We hear of people having autofocus consistency problems with the 50 f/1.8 all the time, and I have to wonder if using the absolute best autofocus system available makes a significant difference for that.

Widest open, same thing ... soft.
Stopped down from there ... spot on if the AF has a shot in the dark. Its kinda cool to hear that plastic gear screaming to get in line ... ha!
The nifty isnt something I shoot with often much less in the dark, so ...


The only reason why I have the nifty is from way back when I wanted bokeh on a budget. ;)

Went out to watch Bradley take home another Gold.

Really pleased again with the DX metering, the part of the course I selected caused me big issues when the sun came out with the area id selected for the tight crop suddenly being a high shadow area.

AF system still isnt 'set' up perfectly which is more user error I feel (testing out various AF settings to find which works best).

Quite a big crop from the original file shot on the 400 2.8 + sigma 1.4tc

Seeing as this is a forum with a good population of Americans it would be rude not to show some Team USA love.

Answering my own question after contacting RRS: The 1Dx L plate doesn't have the hole because it wouldn't work with the adjustability of the L plate.

The solution is to buy a clamp, hook the strap to that and clamp that to the L-plate...
