Yuk.. My new 5D3 has to go into the shop. So Im going to rent a 1Dx for this weekends wedding.. Gonna test it shot for shot against the 5D3's especially very dark reception lighting and Dance floor shots. So,, i will get a report to you guys next week. Big Country has both and notes that the 1Dx is usable at 20000 iso right off the camera...so im gonna find out. Will also put the newer AF features to test against the 5D3 and see what we get.

I heard the image quality is a noticeable step up from the 5D3.

The info button is sticking badly. Acts like its gummed up. also have seen black cloth material on the mirror a few times. I couldnt get it out of the histogram mode several times this weekend because it was stuck..had to keelp pushing it and the button barely slid out.

Either that is a lonely marriage or you are doing some things with your camera that I dont think are in the manual.

I already know its got a 5D3 by a stop ...Nick I will forward you a couple of full size files so you can do your test on them-- what im really interested in is how much better the servo system is, facial recognition and how it tracks, and 12800-20000 ISO..How good they really are....I frankly could care less about speed,, all though its nice to have. Im purposely taking shots with the 85L at F/2.0 and the 135L at F/2.0 at 12800 iso to see the difference plus 20000 ISO and see how it looks at a reception,,, this one coming up is gonna be dark so im prety excited to get the comparisons in, especially with servo. Gonna take some Full size JPEG shots as well at various iSO's...im told there is a big improvement in the JPEG files as well....point noted Lloyd.
