Absolutely. The original 7D is no slouch, but it's not in the same league in terms of AF as the 5D3 - especially when the light levels are low. OK, the 7D will spray a bit faster, so that is a factor.

Yup, exactly! It can spray faster, but more of those images will be out of focus. Hence why the 7DII is actually a huge upgrade over the 7D and not so incremental as some people may or may not claim it to be.

That was more of a reminder to myself that I don't want to move to the 1DX series. I've been talking myself out of the 1DX series for the last year. :)

Haha, gotcha. Yeah...the reasonable part of me is talking me out of it to wait for the 5DX/4, but the other part is whispering temptation into my ear..."you want this...you need this...you deserve this."

Yea, the gist I get from most 7D2 shooters is that it's a stunning camera for things that move. Certainly the best not-a-1D-series body for that application.

I can't believe a new 5D will match the 7D2's frame rate, but hopefully it'll leapfrog it in terms of AF.

1x CFast & 1x SD. Where do they (Canon) come up with these strategies ??

The same place as they used to build a multi-multi million dollar company.

Well, can't wait for the 5D4 and not going to the 1DX2 as I don't need the speed and don't need the hassle of replacing CF cards with these expensive CFast cards so on Saturday went and purchased a 5D3 and I really don't know why (except its £1k cheaper now than when it first arrived on the market) I didn't buy one sooner. It really is a cracking piece of kit.

There's only one thing the 1-series has the 5D3 hasn't is multi-spot metering that I'd like. If the 5D4 has it I'll definately get one.

Is it a rumour but are Nikon offering two cf slots as an option instead of the QXD slot? If they are I think Canon should follow suit.

Nikon announced two D5 bodies. They are exactly the same with one difference. One version has two XQD slots and the second version has two CF slots.

I'm guessing it would be possible to have a Nikon centre retrofit a different card reader module into a body if needed.

If I was in the market to upgrade my D4 I'd be getting the XQD version without hesitation.

I think the link OP posted had a bit of wish-mor in it.

5D series was never known for its AF capabilities and Canon had made it clear all along that their top-of-the-line AF system is strictly 1D-series.

Or the system might be derived from the 1DX MK2, but it would be a complete dumb-down version to not allow people to use 5D series for jobs intended for 1D series.

Instead, I think we'd see a bit more focus on 4K and maybe video AF and better ISO performance on the next iteration of 5D.

The problem with that is, look at the 5D3 AF vs the 1Dx (mark I). On paper, mostly iTR (though in reality there's more processing performance in the 1Dx).

Look at the 1Dx II vs the 1Dx I: on paper, same number of points, a better iTR system, and f/8 on all points.

The 7D2 and 5Ds already have iTR - indeed Canon's blurb for the 1Dx II mentions the iTR system "from the 7D2" (rather than the 1Dx I). The 80D has AF at f/8 on more than the centre point.

As such, what could they cut from a new 5D vs the 1Dx II, without making it look inferior to the 5D3, or existing not-a-1D bodies? It doesn't look as though they've given themselves much room to manoeuvre - which is surely good for potential 5Dx/4 buyers. Unless they throw us a massive curveball I guess.

Having just purchased a 5D3 this last weekend to pair with my 1DX for full frame use (which is weddings/social/presen​tation work/architecture) I'm going to start to compare them for some of the points raised in this thread re focussing, high ISO performance etc.

As I don't use my 1DX for sport much as I have two 1D4's for that (crop value is the bonus) the 150k shutter life on the 5D3 won't be an issue. It's nice that I can set up the 5D3 to use functions like exposure lock hold to match my 1DX and the depth of field button to switch between one shot/servo focus or vise versa. This might see me through the next 3-4 years for full frame.

Looking forward to this comparison! :-D

Me too. Remember real world stuff, no test charts so expect a few beer cans to feature ...
