The 1DX and 300 2.8L IS II take the 1.4X Teleconverter really well. Focus was still really fast and accurate and images were very sharp.

For all those who misunderstood my posting of the Moon that was "soft" to say the least.......
Now for the good news. Canon recognised this lens combo produced a back focussing issue on the 1DX.

It's 384,000 km's to the moon. If your shot showed back focus then you may have broken some record. It certainly puts the error from my 50/1.2 into perspective.

Had a good day today took about 1500 images, Focusing worked as it should, got to say pretty pleased considering how overcast it was most of the day. An awful lot of experimenting to be done.

He must live very close to the moon too.
I just took a picture with the 1Dx + 70-200 MKII + x2MKIII.
To arrive at the same image size, I had to interpolate my image twice. Once at the RAW conversion stage (from 17MP to 25MP) and then again in PS (from 660px crop to 1098px) add to the equation the fine clouds surrounding the moon today and the result is an image of very poor quality. I could be wrong but, I sense something is not quite what it seems here. :eek:

Today i've been doing alot of learning/experimenting​. First off the speed and accuracy of the focus is IMO outstanding! Today I purposely decided to shoot in partial metering to see how it did with the sun behind my subject. Im pretty happy with the results the camera produced... but I had to buy LR4 and it took some getting used, i need to adjust the WB I think because the grass looks more yellow than it should, otherwise tell me what you think? I also really like the auto ISO, I never used it on my 7D.

No offense, but I've seen sharper, more vibrant motorcross stuff in the 1DMK3 thread. Just an observation. I keep checking back with this thread once a week or so, hoping to see that shot that makes me pull the trigger on buying an X. Haven't seen it yet.

None taken, I can make them sharper, but they have had no sharpening at all. Also I was using the 100-400mm not the sharpest lens in my view. Weather very flat as well.
I am more interested in the consistency and keeper rate very high. I have owned the 1D MK3, (several in fact), have a MK4, and 5D's I know which one I will always pick up.

Also most of my images were shot around 1/400 sec, this one certainly was. The important part was the continual AI tracking, it just locks in and does not leave it what ever, that for me is far better than any other Canon Focusing system to date.

Lets face it there are plenty of really sharp images in this thread all ready if that is what you are looking for, Trandunz's dam good sharp images

I'm not sure you're going to see what you want. The 1DMkIII, 1DMkIV and 1DsMkIII were all capable of producing the same excellent results. The strength of the 1Dx lies in its AF reliability and signal to noise ratio when the Iso is pushed.....ie, it's the chance of getting the shot, not the resultant shot, that has improved.

So, basically, it's a tease. You can now supposedly 'get' the shot easier, but the resulting shot won't be any different than before. Help me understand; why do I want this shot then? People who know me would tell you I need very little reason or excuse to spend money, a character flaw, I know. And I just keep waiting for that one thing to flip my switch and you're right, I might not ever see that shot. My bank account will thank me, at least.

elrey2375, I am not really sure what you are looking for, there are plenty of really fantastic images out there, not just in this thread, and remember in this thread you are looking at images taken by in my case just an average photographer, I have not shot fast moving objects in a while, so you have to remember it can be the user not the camera.

Review at Fred Miranda... http://www.fredmiranda​.com/1dx-review/ (external link)

I think this review shows some pretty impressive images.

I know one thing for sure anyone who had a Canon 1DX will not be disappointed as an overall body, if they they think it is worth to them it is another matter :(
