Thanks I think I got that figured out. I'm sure I will have lots of questions about getting this set up


You can also switch between the Af-on and AE button. I have back button af locked to the AE button because it's easier for me to reach.

Yeah awesome shot, I've tried moon shots and they haven't turned out near as sharp but according to some people on here my shot was picking up haze in the atmosphere.

Methodical - I'm 6'7" and I have huge hands so reaching the button isn't an issue for me, but I have always used back button focus but now with the 1D4 when I use the remote shutter release the camera won't focus until I change the back button setting from C.fn. IV 3 to 0
Now the af-on and shutter both work but I'm concerned that will the camera still be metering when I use back buttom since I made C.fn. change?

I'd have the 1Dx as it has built upon the 1D IV strengths and moved the game on in many areas. The 1D IV still has a lot going for it though and some good used bargains can be had. When I use mine I never feel disappointed.
Ultimately it comes down to what you can afford and I'd say if you can afford a 1Dx then go for it :-)

2slo- how much do you notice the lack of the 1.3 crop?

If I'm shooting birds or wildlife with the 1Dx I notice the loss of the crop, especially with long lenses. If I'm at 600mm the 1D IV gives an extra 180mm in effective reach which is a lot. Brings us round to the old question about pixels on target with the crop sensor vs crop ability of the newer FF. I don't want to get into that, I'll just repeat that I like both cameras, both get well used and I'm not in any hurry to change either of them.

You may be the first person I have heard or read say they miss the crop. I do not miss it. The resolution on the 1Dx is so good that cropping is a non-factor. That said, I haven't sold my 1D4 yet as I am not sold on the 7d2. And I do love my 1D4.

It isn't so much that I miss the crop, it's as I said above, I just notice the difference. I like having the choice of more than one camera and I'll pick up either as the mood takes me. If I pick up the 1D IV, as I often do, I know I wont be disappointed. I took it out yesterday with my 300mm + 1.4x TC:

I know this is a photo posing sight but since I had asked some questions already I wanted to give an update.

I'm not sure if this made any difference but to start I updated the firmware from 1.1.1 to the latest 1.1.4. Then I purchased focus tune to go alone with my existing lensalign my ii. I ran it with all of my lenses except with the extenders, I'll have to do that outside I can get about 25-30 feet bit not the recommended distance. My camera is now set at the following
70-200 +8
24-105 +12
100 2.8 macro +12
50 1.4 +3
I just finished up last night so I'll get out this week and take some photos. Thanks for all the replies on here and the supportive pm's

Anyone wondering about doing micro adjust on their camera I can tell you I would definitely use the lensalign pro with focus tune. I realize you can do it by eye but I cannot imagine being as accurate as this is. I've tried to do the diy micro adjust on previous cameras but I had a hard time telling between the different shots.

I can't wait for spring to be able to get our and shoot

thanks
