Yes, way way heavy crop.
I just went back to see how big the bird was in the original=no more
that 1/25th the entire frame....the crop measured 280kb. I guess
looking back it was too big of a crop for a decent picture but is what it is.

It's still a great shot. I only asked as I noticed a lot of grain in the background which to people who spend time looking at photos at 100% in PP is noticeable but for most consumers means nothing.

Haha I see, you've been pixel peeping!

Forgot to mention I'm a consumer.

Update for the corrupted raw files with CFast, just received call from CPS:

- Canon will release firmware in the beginning of July;
- It is targeted to Sandisk CFast (64 & 128), other brand is OK (CPS mentioned no need to update firmware if you are not using Sandisk);
- Due to power usage with Sandisk CFast (so camera knows which brand you insert in?);
- Affect file size larger than 16MB (humm, most of the raw file are over 20MB), don't understand;
- Video file is not affected;

Will keep you updated :)

So far Lexar is A OK.

Last night I copied lot's of (good) Raw file from office with Sandisk CFast, and re-open at home (without using camera). Found couple files were corrupted after copying.

Wow.. So weird. Hopefully this will sort everything out.

Shot 32 headshots tonight for an event. Not exactly a demanding task for the camera, but it performed admirably as always. :-)

Interested to see how you go with your order, they were supposed to have stock today, now they are saying 28th June.
I have been watching closely from afar here in Oz, ordered one locally 8 weeks ago and the wait is killing me !

HOSTED PHOTO
please log in to view hosted photos in full size.

My contribution to the 1DXII 'birds in flight' theme .. From Americas Cup , Chicago, 6/11 . I do reportage/documentary/​event photography .. 70-300 F4-5.6 L , AI Servo ..crop from about 800 yards or so ..our craft was repositioned.. a bit more reach would have been nice . The heat shimmer adds a nice touch :)
After 75 days , about 28K clicks and serving 4 assignments, no issues with the 1Dx Mk II .. behaving as I hoped and earned a spot in the primary rotation of bodies ..
