How is the autofocus 50mm@F1.2? Is it a hit and mis like the 5D3 or has it been improved?

Under normal phase-detection, it's the same as it's always been.

BUT, since there's dual-pixel AF via liveview... if the situation allows for it, the AF is bang-on accurate. :lol:

Tnx good to know!! is the liveview fast enough for tracking walking people in a wedding? It would be awesome if I could pull shots @1.2 and not have to go to F2 for safety.

Haha! That's what a Lumix GM5 is for! Though I'm envious of anyone who put this camera in a backpack.

I would say it is possible but it would need practice for the technique of keeping focus tracking, possibly with a combo of using your left hand on the touch screen if the camera lost the face, and for sure, given the DoF at F1.2, and the fact that the lens isn't perfect at F1.2, then I would say that as long as you are at a shooting distance to give you full body portraits (15-20 feet) and thus giving you about 1/2 a foot in front of the focus plane of critical DoF, then it could work with practice. The alternative would be to shoot in Movie 60fps 4k video mode, and use a high frame rate (1/400 - 1/500) to get crisp pictures from 8mpix frame grabs - I think this would work with the 50L for sure.


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.

Wallstreet, do images 'harvested' from 4k video have EXIF intact via the 1DXii ?
I've done this with the GH4 and the EXIF is intact.

Don't know if they have EXIF data - will check.

Here's my bird shot to contribute to the thread.  :p

Walking around DC, on proper vacation time now after working my socks off, we were sitting at an outdoor table next to the Smithsonian National Air & Space museum and this little guy was keeping us company.

Sooc, zero edits.

A little HS Senior session last night. 135L for both shots. The 135 really shines on this 1Dx2. As most of you know, it need shutter speed for optimal performance. The 1/250 gate speed and ISO performance works really well with this lens. And of course the AF just does not miss. Love the camera.

I thought f/1.2 was OK - the focus shift was only a phenomena when mildly stopped down. -?

Here you go. It looks like there is some EXIF data but not everything. When I loaded the frame grabs into LR, there was no SS, Aperture or ISO data in the usual window but looking at the Flickr data, there is other EXIF data - type of lens, type of camera, etc.

I did an experiment as this is the one area where I think that a bunch of different types of photogs may think of using the 1Dx_II's 4K 60P movie mode to capture frame grabs. Your traditional movie camera setup, even though there is no hard a firm rule stating it, will use 2X the Shutter Speed to get 'smooth' good looking video. But, if you actually don't care about smooth video, and your goal is to get sharp pictures (from a 4K frame grab), then you can and should use a SS that a photog would use in the same situation - and the bonus is you will now get a huge amount of sharp frames to choose from - but they are of lesser quality and you better make sure your WB is dialed in. To highlight this point, I shot two very short movies at 4K 60p, one with a 1/125 SS and one with a 1/800 SS - and then did a frame grab from each. It was fortunately a little windy outside and this specific flower to be was blowing around slowly. (recording video at this SS makes the video suck but the frames are sharp)

Camera was set to AutoISO (WB was AWB(white) and Picture style was set to fine Detail). If you zoom in on the closed flower, you will see the image is sharper using the faster SS. I can possibly see a wedding photog, using the 4K frame grab during the wedding kiss, possibly the walk down the aisle, the bouquet toss, etc. It would make for potentially longer editing, but you would have a much higher shot at the perfect frame - that said, if the subject is not changing its distance relative to the camera, the Live View 16FPS is basically silent and amazing - plus it is full frame.
