Does anyone on here own a 1DX who does not work professionally?

After toying between the 5D3 and the 1DX, gave in and ordered the 1DX yesterday. Will receive it on Monday. I am not a pro photographer but a serious enthusiast with interest in nature and wildlife photography. I presently own the 1DIV and hope that the AF and low noise at high ISO capabilities of the 1DX would be wort it.

Well, ive only got my 7d to play with at the moment. The guy in the shop said the battery would be half charged and i should run it down then charge it overnight. But when i tried it it was completely dead so have to charge it noe, gutted!

Do i really need to charge it overnight?? I dont reckon....

No, don't need to charge it overnight. Thought I do recall the first time I charged it, it took around 4 hours (but don't quote me on that). It does take a while to charge.

Congrats man....You will love it...When I got mine I was really worried about the learning curve from the 7d to the 1dx, but it is not hard and you will pick it up very quickly. :D

The only sad thing about buying the 1dx is that the next time you pick up your 7d, it will feel like a toy in comparison.

It's amazing how simple and intuitive the menu system actually is given the amount of settings.

You're right about the 7D - I can't believe it, before today the 7D felt big and chunky, now picking it up after holding the 1DX it feels tiny!

I ordered the 1Dx last week from B and H, when it arrived I was shocked. It came with so many free extras I just about fell off the chair. Thumbs up to B and H.

The 1DX battery will get you through a whole day of shooting provided you dont chimp all day. A 2nd battery is not a must unless your a pro. Nice to have a backup .... but one battery is good enough for most until it gets old and weak.

But remember that there will always be the day when you you throw your battery into the charger to charge overnight but you didn't seat it properly or you forgot to plug in the charger. Then you will really wish you had a backup, especially if you had something big planed the next day.

Thanks! It's amazing. Was playing around today, this isn't an interesting shot but I can't believe how clean it looks for ISO 51,200 - amazing!!
